Style and activism are two different words but not when it comes to ASOS and GlAAD. Last year, ASOS launched a highly successful capsule collection with GlAAD, a dynamic media organization tackling tough issues that lead to acceptance and cultural change, to support the Together Movement. The duo teamed up again this year to collaborate on the second part of their all-inclsuive pride collection which dropped on Friday, June 22 online.
The line has everything from clothing to accessories featuring the ampersand, “&”, representing the power of voices coming together to resist discrimination and hate. It made its debut in public at the Pride March in New York City on Sunday, June 24.The campaign features models of all shapes and sizes, backgrounds, and the gender and sexuality spectrum, including Tommy Dorfman of 13 Reasons Why.
Check out their collection and show your pride! 25 percent of the proceeds from the collection will go to GLAAD.
