June is Pride month and many fashion retailers and brands are using their platforms to promote the message of inclusivity with limited-edition collections. Some companies, however, went the extra mile by pledging their profits to LGBTQ+ organizations.
Here are some of this year’s best Pride collections that also give back:

Popular fashion retailer Express teamed up with GLAAD and OUT Magazine to launch the Love Unites collection, a gender-fluid drop. This collaborative release pays tribute to nearly five decades of Pride. For every Love Unites item purchased by July 15, Express will donate 25% of the net income to GLAAD to accelerate acceptance for the LGBTQ+ community with a minimum donation of $100,000.
