LGBTQ Pride Month

Gap Partners With The UN For Pride Month, Creates Collection To Encourage Us To 'Wear Our Pride'

#WearYourPride

This Pride month, we've seen many clothing brands create collections that raise awareness and funds for the LGBTQ community, from MeUndies, to Converse, to Nike

Gap is also celebrating Pride 2017 with its #WearYourPride collection of rainbow T-shirts.

For the line, Gap has partnered with the United Nations Foundation's Free & Equal initiative with the goal of ensuring equal rights and treatment for the LGBTQ community through fundraising and raising awareness.

When people purchase the Pride T-shirts, 30 percent of net sales will be donated to the cause.

The T-shirts will be available in stores all over the world, including the U.S., Hong Kong, Italy, France, Taiwan, and Canada. They will be sold through the month of October, while supplies last. 

Furthermore,  $2 for every Pride eGift card — available from AthletaBanana RepublicBanana Republic FactoryGapGap Factory and Old Navy — sold in June will be donated, up to $25,000. 

Roy L. Hunt, Gap Inc. SVP global franchise operation and executive sponsor of the company's partnership with UN Foundation said in a statement, "We're proud to partner with the UN Foundation in support of UN Free & Equal. For more than 47 years, Gap Inc. has stood for equality for all, and we're pleased to give our customers a way to express their support and celebrate Pride. We are committed to doing our part to bring people together and work towards a brighter future where everyone has the opportunity to thrive as equals."

Charles Radcliffe, UN Free & Equal campaign director, said, "The UN Free & Equal campaign is working globally to open people's hearts and minds and promote greater respect for the rights of LGBTI people. With Gap Inc.'s help and the support of its customers, the campaign will this year reach more people in more countries than ever before."
