Every Pride, we share a blog highlighting the brands that walk the walk and give back to the LGBTQ+ community. In a year that has seen folks question brand loyalty and allyship, it is important that we recognize those companies that have been unwavering in their support of our community.
Allyship isn’t easy, and we are incredibly grateful to the many brands that have shown they understand what showing up for a community looks like. Let us be clear. We could not do our critically important work in support of LGBTQ+ youth without the support of our partners.
This year’s brands are a collection of longtime partners and new friends — all of which have agreed that standing up for LGBTQ+ youth in good times and bad is not just a priority but a responsibility.
Thank you for your continued support.
