Pride Month is here! Every June, we come together to celebrate LGBTQ+ culture and to support LGBTQ+ rights, paying homage to the Stonewall uprising of 1969 in NYC—the catalyst of the gay liberation movement. In its 51st year, Pride continues to stand for activism, equality, freedom, and joy, and this year, plenty of brands are continuing the tradition of giving back to support the LGBTQ+ community.

Below, we're sharing the fashion brands offering their support to make a positive impact. From Teva to Madewell, if you're so inclined to put your dollars toward brands that are giving back, shop our picks.

Teva

This month, Teva releases a collection of all-gender rainbow sandals and accessories that proudly stand out in celebration of individuality and equality. To celebrate their commitment to the LGBTQ community, Teva will make a $25,000 donation to The Trevor Project—the world's largest suicide prevention and mental health organization for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer and questioning LGBTQ young people.
