Although June 1 marked the beginning on Pride Month, this month has looked very different from Pride of years past, and for good reason. While a global pandemic has upended traditional Pride parades, marches, and rallies, the push for racial equality feels stronger than ever, which is a cause for celebration. You see, the fight for LGBTQ+ rights and the Black Lives Matter protests are intrinsically linked—Pride Month traces its roots to the Stonewall uprising in NYC, where trans and queer people of color like Marsha P. Johnson were on the frontlines fighting for LGBTQ+ rights.

So as you continue to sign petitions, donate, get out and protest, and educate yourself to fight racism, we’d like to point out that another way to make an impact is to vote with your wallet—and there are plenty of opportunities to show our support to worthy organizations and put our dollars toward clothing with a cause. Make your money go the distance and shop collections from brands like Converse, Levi's, Ugg, and Teva that donate to nonprofits such as the Human Rights Campaign and It Gets Better Project. Plus, with products ranging from statement-making footwear to cool loungewear pieces, you'll want to add to your cart immediately.

And while you can (and should!) wear your Pride on your sleeve all year round, many of these pieces are only available through the end of the month, so scroll through the below roundup to shop them all while you can.
