There's no time like the present to clad yourself in head-to-toe rainbow. In honor of June’s Pride celebrations around the country, we’ve rounded up five of our favorite ROYGBIV capsule collections…all of which give back to the LGBTQ+ community and support its many vital organizations. Happy shopping, and happy Pride!
5 Collections That Celebrate Pride While Supporting LGBTQ+ Organizations
Gap’s PRIDE collection, a collab with LGTBQIA+ activist Jodie Patterson, includes everything from men’s and women’s graphic T's to rainbow onesies for baby. From May 26 to July 6, Gap will donate 15 percent of sales (and as much as $100,000) from this collection to the United Nations Foundation in support of UN Free & Equal, an organization that's fighting against homophobia and transphobia.
Cinq à Sept
In partnership with the Stonewall Inn Gives Back Initiative, Cinq à Sept’s collaboration with Saks commemorates the 50th anniversary of the monumental riots that took place at the Greenwich Village, New York bar. The unisex capsule collection features trendy tie-dye T-shirts ($95) and sweatshirts ($225) each emblazoned with the phrase “I Love Every One.” Even better, 30 percent of net proceeds will go to SIBGI (and a minimum of $100,000 will be donated.)
Madewell’s limited-edition “Love to All” collection is marking its return this year with a bandana, unisex sweatshirt and unisex tee featuring the brand’s “Love to All” graphic. Exactly 50 percent of each purchase price will go to the Human Rights Campaign (the largest civil rights organization in the U.S., that is working to ensure LGBTQ+ people are safe, equal and free in every community). Plus, these designs have already been worn by Margot Robbie, Emma Roberts and Emma Watson.
Lucky Brand will launch the Lucky x Love T-shirt capsule collection on June 1, featuring the winning designs of three artists. (The winners were chosen by a panel of creators, influencers and leaders in the LGBTQ community for having the most thoughtful, creative and moving designs.) For every shirt sold, the brand will donate $10 to the Los Angeles LGBT Center, which aids community members in areas of health, social services, housing, culture, education, leadership and advocacy. In fact, the Center is celebrating its 50th year in business!
Teaming up with the Hetrick-Martin Institute, DKNY’s pride collection features ROYGBIV shirts, hoodies and accessories (including a rainbow belt bag we’re currently coveting). The HMI provides social support and programming to underserved LGBTQ+ individuals who are between the ages of 13 and 24 (in addition to their families).
