10 Pride products that donate to important LGBTQ causes


Pride month is almost over, but there’s still time to grab some rainbow-infused products. Here’s a list of some that also donate to good LGBTQ causes.

June is Pride month, a time when the LGBTQ community comes together to celebrate and continue to fight for equality. Many companies will throw rainbows on products in an effort to gain new customers but not all of them support the community or give back. Below is a selection of products where a portion of the proceeds gets donated to various charities or philanthropic organizations.

1. Converse

Converse’s Pride collection includes a selection of Chucks and apparel designed in partnership with Miley Cyrus. All 100 percent of the net proceeds are donated to Converse’s selection of LGBTQ+ Charity partners, including Happy Hippie Foundation and the It Gets Better Project. Additionally, Converse worked with its own designers as well as community-artists to create a series of free downloadable posters that can be printed out and displayed.

2. American Eagle

American Eagle’s Pride collection consists of tank tops, t-shirts, boxers, socks, and hats that feature rainbows and encouraging phrases promoting equality. 100 percent of sales of the collection will be donated to the It Gets Better Project. Bonus: The collection is currently on sale.

3. Human Rights Campaign

While not a traditional retail vendor, the HRC has a huge selection of Pride and equality-themed products available for purchase. Not only does the entire total of your purchase fuel the organization to help fight for LGBTQ equality and rights, but you can also choose to add a one-time donation onto your purchase. Standouts of the collection include the J. Crew and Madewell collaboration of Love First t-shirts, and the “Make America Gay Again” hats.

4. Harry’s

A more practical product that can also support the LGBTQ community would be Harry’s limited edition Shave with Pride set. With packaging designed in collaboration with artists Craig & Karl, a stunning rainbow handle, and 100 percent of profits being donated to GLAAD and other LGBTQ+ causes, this box set is perfect for a gift or to keep yourself.

5. Levi’s

Levi’s Pride collection features a variety of clothing and accessories that have both small and bold nods to Pride. The cut-off shorts have a subtle hint with rainbow stars along the back waistband whereas the Pride Community Tank announces “I am proud” in big bold letters. Additionally, there’s a blank “I am” t-shirt that allows customers to customize their shirts and share your own Pride story. While not visible on the site, a press release confirms that Levi’s will donate 100 percent of proceeds to the  Harvey Milk Foundation and the Stonewall Community Foundation.

6. Abercrombie & Fitch

A&F’s Made for Love Pride collection includes a collection of socks, tees, tanks, and totes with proceeds being donated to The Trevor Project.

7. Milk Makeup
