Pride Month: Partnerships to Feel Proud Of
Wearing the rainbow can celebrate our diversity and raise money for worthy causes.
June is Pride Month and from store fronts to amazing designer collaborations, the world is celebrating in true prismatic form. The exciting, inclusive and honest energy behind the many Pride festivals happening around Canada shows how far LGBTQ visibility has come–something Hudson’s Bay is proud to support and be a part of.
We want to highlight a few brands that have gone a step further, donating proceeds from the sales of their Pride collections to organizations doing life-saving work and game-changing advocacy.
Dr. Martens + The Trevor Project
Founded in 1998 by filmmakers Peggy Rajski, Randy Stone and James Lecesne, the organization has provided suicide prevention and crisis intervention services to LGBTQ+ youth in addition to funding research in these vital fields.
Ralph Lauren + Stonewall Community Foundation
Since 1990, the New York City-based foundation has funded over 100 not-for-profit organizations, been a source of grants that benefit the LGBTQ+ community and put considerable effort into helping homeless youth reach their potential.
Levi’s + OutRight Action International
Tracking the LGBTQ experience worldwide is at the heart of OutRight’s mission. Connecting activists and conducting trainings and research, this organization partners with human rights defenders around the world with the aim to prevent abuses before they happen.
Calvin Klein + Human Rights Campaign
One of the first LGBTQ political action committees in the USA, the Human Rights Campaign is now the largest American civil rights organization advocating for equality for LGBTQ people with over 3 million supporters.
