theSkimm's Guide to Pride Picks

PUBLISHED JUN 27, 2018

Pride Month may be coming to an end, but Skimm HQ wants to keep riding the rainbow. Some of our favorite brands have partnered up with LGBTQ+ organizations to create products that give back (and look good year-round). A portion of all the items featured will go towards groups that support equality for all. But, unlike glitter, these items aren’t going to be around forever. No day like today to get ‘em.

PS: make your inner (pop) queen happy by getting Mariah Carey’s Rainbow cover on a hoodie. A portion of profits will go towards GLAAD.

Levis Pride Trucker Jacket

For when you look at your closet and think “needs more 80s”…
This jacket should do the trick. Levi’s Pride Community Trucker Jacket comes in one color: End Hate. Paging Pantone. 100% of proceeds from the collection will be donated to support the Harvey Milk Foundation and Stonewall Community Foundation. Both celebrate icons in the fight for equality: Harvey Milk, activist and one of the world’s first openly gay elected officials, and The Stonewall Uprising of 1969, which many consider the catalyst for the international gay rights movement.

For when your sib blames you for ‘borrowing' mom’s earrings…
I’ve been framed. Try snagging these limited edition Haskell glasses instead. They come in a ton of colors like Amethyst Crystal and Lemon Meringue. For each pair sold, Warby Parker will donate to The Trevor Project and Lambda Legal.

Everlane Human Pins

For when your outfit needs a little more flair...
Put a pin in it. And get these from Everlane’s 100% Human Collection. They might be more muted than your usual Pride merch, but these pack a charity punch. With every piece sold in the collection, $5 is donated towards the ACLU. 100% yes.

Milk Glitter Pride Set

For when you have a lot to say about equal rights...
Pride, meet pout. Milk's Limited Edition Pride Pack comes with shimmery lip gloss and a temporary equality tattoo stamp. Because love is love even if it isn’t permanent. 50% of the purchase price will go towards The Center in NYC. Get glossy.

American Eagle It Gets Better

For when you’re into the graphic tee trend…
No insult to that 70’s band you’ve never listened to, but try one with a message that matters. Like this American Eagle tee. It’s part of their 2018 Pride Collection and 100% of sales will go towards the It Gets Better Project. Rock on.

Harry's Pride Set

For when No-Shave November makes an unexpected summer appearance…
Shave for a cause, but this time in summer. Harry’s Shave With Pride Set comes with a razor, three blade cartridges, gel, and travel cover. But the best part is that 100% of the proceeds will be donated to LGBTQ causes. Smooth out that road to equality.

Urban Outfitters Hat

For when that Pride parade float is all sparkle and no shade…
Don’t let the sun keep you from shinin’. But seriously, next time you march bring this hat. It’s part of the Urban Outfitters Community Cares program, which donates $10 to GLSEN for every product sold. Currently serving: dad fashion, but diva.

J.Crew HRC Socks

For when your friend has the perfect Pride playlist…
Sock it to me. And throw your dancing shoes on over these J.Crew Pride Socks. 50% of each purchase will benefit the Human Rights Campaign. So you can work (and werk) towards a brighter future.

Apple Watch Rainbow

For when your iPhone’s already representing…
Show your wrist some love. Apple’s Pride Edition Watch Band supports a ton of LGBTQ+ advocacy programs; from PFLAG, to Gender Spectrum, ILGA, and more. Band together, cause it’s always Pride o’clock.

Converse Pride Miley Cyrus

For when you want to be casual but also extra…
In these shoes, every step you take will say “Yaaass”. They’re part of the Converse Pride Collection, designed by Miley Cyrus. All net proceeds will support the Happy Hippie Foundation. Now throw a peace sign up as you sashay away.
