Pride Merch to Shop That Supports LGBTQ+ Organizations

Pay attention to the companies that donate year-round—not just during Pride Month.

This June, many of our favorite brands are rolling out special lines in celebration of Pride Month. While it’s wise to be mindful of any potential "rainbow-washing," many are giving back to the community they are honoring. Here, we’ve rounded up the items we love from the brands that support nonprofits focused on the wellbeing and basic human rights of LGBTQ+ people.

1461 For Pride Smooth Leather Oxford Shoes

Dr. Martens donates year-round to The Trevor Project, a nonprofit organization that focuses on suicide prevention among LGBTQ+ youth by providing resources, counselors, and guidance. This year, the brand has pledged to donate $200,000 to the organization with its new, limited-edition 1461 oxford serving as a tribute to its alliance with the community. Dr. Martens has also launched Pride Generations, a conversation series featuring Lady Phyll, the co-founder of London Black Pride, and Lucia Blayke, the founder of London Trans+ Pride.
