June marks Pride Month, and the category is… fierce! Since its inception in 1999, Pride Month has evolved into an annual event to honor the LGBTQ+ community, remember the historic struggle for equality, and celebrate love that transcends.
Whether you are part of the community or an ally, Pride is a time to come together and honor the impact of the LGBTQ+ community with joy – and style! To help you prepare for the festivities, we’ve rounded up an A-Z Pride Guide featuring a variety of brands proudly expressing their support and belief that #LoveisLove:
Your favorite prepster brand is giving back in a big way: Abercrombie & Fitch released a powerful partnership with The Trevor Project, a suicide prevention and crisis intervention organization for LGBTQIA+ youth. The brand’s ongoing commitment to The Trevor Project has contributed to more than $2 million in donations. For Pride 2021, Abercrombie & Fitch will donate $200,000 to the organization.
The gender-inclusive collection features tie-dyed sweatshirts, shorts, bandanas, trendy bucket hats, and tees. Abercrombie & Fitch will also sell rainbow t-shirts and boxers, as well as its Pride-themed fragrance, Fierce.

In the words of Lin-Manuel Miranda, “love is love is love.” Adidas is celebrating the sentiment with the launch of its Love Unites collection, an assortment of more than 30 Pride-inspired designs, and a global campaign to celebrate the LGBTQ+ community.
The collection features unique geometric shapes and vibrant colors to evoke a DIY-vibe. According to the brand, the DIY visual aesthetic is “born from the LGBTQ+ communities who had sought to create their own spaces for self-expression.”
The commemorative collection will also spotlight a collective of athletes and artists pushing for inclusivity, including Ashlyn Harris, Ali Krieger, Rachel Daly, Tom Daley, Thebe Magugu, Chinae Alexander, Jessamyn Stanley and Cody Rigsby.
