Here are some of our favorite fashion brands that are known for giving back:
Converse Converse has been a longtime supporter of the LGBTQIA+ community and has consistently made contributions to organizations like the It Gets Better Project, BAGLY, the Ali Forney Center, and Out MetroWest. Last year, Converse celebrated Pride with a collection of shoes, sunglasses, and apparel inspired by “celebrating the joy in finding your pride,” in addition to campaign visuals featuring six LGBTQIA+ All-Stars.
American Eagle American Eagle partnered with musician and activist mxmtoon on an exclusive, limited-edition collection featuring denim, tees, accessories, and much more. Since first partnering with It Gets Better in 2017, AE and Aerie have helped raise over $3 million for the organization, helping to launch a new initiative called 50 States, 50 Grants, 5,000 Voices to empower, uplift, and connect LGBTQ+ youth through school-based projects across the country.
Reebok Reebok’s Pride campaign last year was centered around the pioneers of the ballroom and vogue scenes. Proceeds from the collection directly benefited the Sylvia Rivera Law Project, a legal aid organization that supports low-income or people of color who are transgender, intersex, and/or gender non-conforming folx.
Calvin Klein Calvin Klein raised $400,000 for various charitable causes championing LGBTQ+ equity and safety. The brand also has a continuing partnership with PFLAG National, Transgender Law Center, and the BlaQ Aboriginal Corporation in Australia.
