Throughout the month of June, Wunderkind is highlighting many of our own employees to discover what Pride Month means to them, what it’s like to work in a safe an inclusive work environment, and more! But, we also wanted to highlight a few of our own customers, who are doing amazing things throughout the month to help support the LGBTQIA+ community. Check it out below.
#UGGPRIDE celebrates PROUD Prom with Pacific Pride Foundation, GLAAD, and the LGBTQIA+ community. UGG believes prom is an experience everyone should get to enjoy. For our fifth year, UGG and Pacific Pride Foundation have reimagined the age-old tradition with PROUD Prom – an inclusive event with local LGBTQIA+ and allied youth from Santa Barbara and the coastal communities of California. A celebration of identity and love, this year’s virtual prom included friends of the brand like Lil Nas X and Hari Nef.
When speaking with our Homage team, the illustrated just how much they love supporting the LGTQIA+ community during Pride, saying, “We love to tell stories and create unique apparel that pays homage to those stories; our Pride campaign adds the chance to give back atop of that. We recognize the stories of the LGBTQIA+ community and their progress; we also recognize there is progress still to be made. Homage strives to do our part to create a diverse and inclusive atmosphere in all parts of our business. This year, we’ve teamed up with a few different organizations that we believe in who are telling their stories in hopes of increased awareness and support.
And, when speaking with our client Allswell, this is what they had to say about their Pride Month initiatives: “At Allswell, we believe everyone deserves amazing sleep. We also believe everyone deserves to comfortably own their unique and authentic identity. That’s why, in honor of Pride Month, Allswell’s customer-favorite Luxe Hybrid Mattress will feature a limited-edition rainbow logo embroidery in place of its classic Allswell logo.
As a brand that believes in relentless inclusivity, Allswell will be making a donation to PFLAG National as part of our commitment to supporting the LGBTQ+ community.This limited-edition Pride Luxe Hybrid Mattress is available exclusively during the month of June.”
