Furthermore, following the deaths of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Tony McDade and other black and transgender people killed by police, protests against systemic racial injustice continue across the country and all over the world.
This month, and always, we stand in solidarity with the LGBTQ and black communities. Many brands in fashion and beauty have launched Pride-themed collections that support and give back to global, national and local organizations dedicated to providing aid, resources and space for the LGBTQ community, such as the Marsha P. Johnson Institute, the Trevor Project, GLAAD and more.
