Center for Black Equity (Black LGBTQ+)
Last Pride we donated a portion of all of the proceeds from our Pride Collection to the Los Angeles LGBT Center and it truly felt good being able to give to a community that we so firmly stand with. This year, we wanted to shift our focus to focus more on the Black LGBTQ+ population as we felt that this was a group of people who have long been unrepresented, excluded and, more often than not, ignored. Especially at a time when race has become a focus for many, we wanted to make it clear that we stand loud and strong with LGBT people and, while doing so, the Black population. Proceeds from our Pride Collection this year will go to the Center for Black Equity, a coalition of Black gay pride organizers working towards the progress and equality of Black LGBT people. The coalition aims to establish economic, health and social equity for Black LGBT people. This is a fight against the disparities and oppressions that have long followed Black LGBT people, for all parts of their existence.
Every purchase within the collection brings money to the coalition that will be used to support both the institutions & programs in place, as well as the people behind them, allowing them to continue their work in the movement towards a more equal and just world.
