6 cool collections to help you celebrate Pride in style10th Jun 19 | Beauty
These rainbow coloured ranges help to raise money for good causes.
June is Pride month, the global event that commemorates the Stonewall riots and celebrates the LGBTQ+ community.
This year marks a significant anniversary – 50 years since the riots in New York City – and once again there will be Pride parades held in towns and cities all over the UK and Ireland during the summer.
Between now and September, more than 85 events will see people coming together to celebrate equality and recognise the influence that lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer people have had around the world.
While there is no official dress code, multi-coloured clothing is embraced by many attendees, mirroring the rainbow flag – the most recognisable symbol of the movement. And now retailers are showing their support with specially designed Pride collections.
A percentage of profits from sales of these ranges goes to LGBTQ+ charities, so you can get kitted out for your local parade and donate to a good cause at the same time.
