The sun is shining, temperatures are rising, and we’re in a big, happy mood—Pride Month is here. When you’re celebrating, the best Pride collections can help you show the world exactly who you are—and provide real support to the LGBTQIA+ community while you’re at it.
While a ton of brands release Pride-inspired collections—many of which offer vague promises to give back a portion of profits—a few stand apart by pledging donations to advocacy organizations with real dollar amounts attached. (And no, a simple Instagram post doesn’t cut it, either.) To claim to make a genuine difference, we need to see the receipts first.
To help you use your spending power as effectively as possible—and pick out a cute outfit for any Pride celebrations while you’re at it—we searched far and wide for the best Pride collections that actually give back to the communities they represent. These are the Pride capsule collections you can feel good about buying.
The Levi’s 2022 Pride collection is filled with timeless pieces you’ll want to wear year-round, including denim skirts, jackets, and corsets. The heritage jeans brand is making a $100,000 donation to OutRight Action International, an organization working to advance the human rights of LGBTQIA+ people worldwide.
The brand just reinvented its most popular slippers in colorways inspired by the Pride and Transgender flags, plus rainbow-colored socks, shirts, and jackets. This month, Ugg will donate $125,000 to support The Trevor Project, a nonprofit dedicated to suicide prevention among LGBTQ+ youth.
While the brand made its name off of exclusivity, Abercrombie is now more committed to inclusion than ever—and its $400,000 donation to the Trevor Project this June proves that. Its Pride collection is stocked with low-key, gender-neutral pieces that’ll fit in with any wardrobe.
To celebrate Pride this year, Vans tapped three artists from the LGBTQIA+ community to design its merch—and set aside $200,000 for three organizations, including the Tegan and Sara Foundation, which provides scholarships and support to queer summer camps.
This month, the classic shoe brand is continuing its annual grants to seven organizations, including the It Gets Better Project (which uplifts LGBTQ+ youth around the world) and the Ali Forney Center (which protects LGBTQ+ young people from homelessness). Converse has donated over $1.65 million to various nonprofits since 2015—and its 2022 Pride capsule also happens to be pretty great.
Morphe’s Pride merch includes two eyeshadow palettes inspired by the rainbow flag, plus a brush set. On top of donating 100% of net proceeds from the collection to the Trevor Project, the makeup brand is also presenting the nonprofit with a $50,000 donation.
Under Armour’s annual Pride-themed products rarely disappoint, and this year we’re vibing some black bike shorts and a pair of tinted sunglasses that literally let you look at the world through a rainbow. The brand will be giving out various $10,000 Under Armour Pride Grants to create safe places for LGBTQ+ athletes to practice and compete—you can apply for a grant here.
The Dr. Martens Pride drop is small but considered: a pair of gender-neutral shoes featuring with the Pride flag, plus matching socks. This year, the brand has also pledged $200,000 to The Trevor Project as part of its annual partnership.
Target’s massive Pride collection, which has received a stamp of approval from TikTok, has T-shirts, hoodies, and tote bags galore, plus collaborations with queer-led brands like TomboyX and the Phluid Project. (And this “Ask me about my pronouns” mug.) Like it has for 11 years now, the retailer is also donating $250,000 to GLSEN, an organization aiming to create accessible and antiracist spaces for LGBTQIA+ students.
Bath & Body Works just released candles, body washes, lotions, mists, and home decor covered in rainbow brushstrokes to complement its $150,000 donation to the It Gets Better Project.
Inspired by the activists of the Stonewall Uprising, the Adidas 2022 Pride collection is an explosion of color and energy. Alongside its merch, the brand has also partnered with Athlete Ally and Stonewall UK to further LGBTQ+ empowerment and fight homophobia and transphobia in the world of sports and beyond.
Flipping the popular slogan “love is love” into the phrase “this is love,” Calvin Klein’s Pride lineup includes tons of Technicolor underwear, tie-dye shirts, and gender-inclusive dresses. It’s also distributing $400,000 among various LGBTQ+ organizations.
In honor of Pride month, beauty brand Ouai is pledging $50,000 to PRISM, a Florida organization fighting the “Don’t Say Gay” bill, and the Los Angeles LGBT Center, a nonprofit providing healthcare, social services, housing, and more to LGBTQ+ people. And with a minimum donation of $30 to these groups, the brand will send you a shirt for free.
This June, Kiehl’s will be making a $150,000 minimum donation to The Trevor Project. And on top of that, any additional proceeds from its Pride-themed skincare offerings will be added to that total.
The brand will be donating a flat $150,000 to The Trevor Project to support the mental health of queer youth this month, plus a minimum of $50,000 extra from the sales of its 11-piece Pride collection.
The North Face went simple with its Pride capsule, adding a rainbow logo to selects tanks and its iconic puffer jacket. Alongside the collection, the brand is donating $100,000 to Brave Trails, a summer camp in California and Maryland for LGBTQ+ kids.
Of course, Rihanna’s gender-inclusive lingerie line has a great Pride capsule. On top of a $250,000 donation split across five organizations (the Audre Lorde Project, the Caribbean Equality Project, INC., GLAAD, TransLatin@ Coalition, and Trans Wellness Center), it’s offering comfy bralettes and underwear that don’t fit the gender binary.
The sandal brand’s new Pride collection includes footwear that’s as loud (or as low-key) as you want it to be, since the straps are now the colors of the rainbow. Teva is also making a $25,000 donation to the Trevor Project.
Pura Vida’s subtle accessories can help you be proud on the daily. For every bracelet sold, 5% of the purchase price goes toward the Trevor Project—and it’s a $25,000 minimum gift. Meaning, the more you buy, the more is donated.
The activewear brand is donating $25,000 to GLAAD, an organization working for greater acceptance of the LGBTQ+ community, this month. It doesn’t hurt that its limited-edition sports bras and leggings are gender-inclusive and so, so cute.
Bombas hasn’t exactly pledged a monetary donation, but for every item from its Pride collection purchased, the brand will be donating one equal item to unhoused LGBTQIA+ youth—a population disproportionately affected by homelessness.
