One of our favorite reasons to check email toward the end of May is to scan our inbox for new Pride collections or collaborations launching for the first time. In 2019, Express is donating 25 percent of the net income from its first-ever Love Unites line to GLAAD, with a minimum donation of $100,000. And Converse relaunched its series of LGBTQ+ shoes (if you recall, Miley Cyrus collaborated with the popular shoe label in 2018). Needless to say, the kicks are as sparkly and unmissable as ever, with a retro feel.
Whether you plan on purchasing the apparel and accessories below because you want to support a cause or charity or you just hope to add some statement-making color to your wardrobe, you can wear any of these selects all year round — and you should. We even found a few higher-end options for you to splurge on, should you want to use June as an excuse to stock up on, oh, I don’t know, those Gucci sunglasses or fabulous Christian Louboutin booties.
All luxury goods aside, there are plenty of sporty tees, biker shorts, baseball caps, and socks here that you’ll love to mix and match with the rest of the Summer items in your closet. Cheers to the brands that are championing Pride’s 50th anniversary and empowering us to do the same.
