Levi's Launches Rainbow-Themed Line To Celebrate Gay Pride Month
Levi's, long the harbinger of American cool, has debuted a rainbow-themed line of clothing in honor of LGBT Pride month. The new apparel collection includes items like tees and tanks for men and women, embellished with a rainbow version of Levi's ionic "batwing" logo on their fronts and "Pride 2014" on their backs.
"Equality is not something we just wear; it’s woven into the fabrics of our principles," Levi's officials said in an email press release.
Fans can pick up Levi's special LGBT apparel through the end of Pride Month at retail locations in New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, San Francisco and D.C. Proceeds of sales from the Pride line will go to benefit LGBT advocacy organizations.
The Pride line doesn't mark Levi's first handshake with the gay community, however; back in 1992 the apparel maker was the first to offer benefits to same-sex couples.
If you don't think it still takes a lot of courage for an international brand to stick its neck out for the LGBT community (especially with something as market-saturated as an entire special line of apparel), think again. Thank you Levi's, for the continued support!
