Pride Month 2022

A number of brands have started to release their Pride-themed collections for 2022.

However, each year brands come under fire for chasing after the “pink pound” with their Pride clothing and ignoring LGBT+ people for the rest of the year.

In order to combat this, in recent years a number of brands have collaborated with LGBT+ artists and highlighted exactly how much money they’ll be donating to LGBT+ charities, and which charities will benefit from the Pride clothing sales.

This includes Target who have teamed up with queer, female-founded brands, TomboyX and Humankind for two limited edition ranges.

While Converse has launched its main collection alongside “Converse By You”, which lets fans create their own personalised “All Star” patch, license plate and laces.

Another recent release is Dr. Martens, who have reimagined their classic 1461 shoes with a subtle rainbow design against the monochrome white base.
