bfgf + Debbie Carlos Shop
"Parallel Movements" Print
$35

LA-based bfgf has joined several other artists and collectives for Debbie Carlos Shop's series Democracy Prints. All proceeds from the collection's sales will go to RAICES Texas Family Unification Bond Fund—whose mission is to reunite families separated at the US border. This particular print measures 13 by 19 inches, and is on matte heavyweight photo paper.

Wildfang
Wild Feminist Pride T-Shirt
$40

Founded and run by women, Wildfang supports the LGBTQ community all year—in 2017 they donated some $75K to various women- and LGBTQ-focused organizations including the ACLU and the Tegan and Sara Foundation. Right now, they're sending a portion of the profits from the sale of the Pride iteration of their Wild Feminist T-shirt to The Trevor Foundation. The relaxed fit top is boxy and made for all genders; available in size from XS to 2XL.

2(X)IST
Pride Jogger Colorblock Swim Short
$75

Even just a rainbow trim speaks volumes. Such is the case on 2(X)IST's Pride Jogger Colorblock Swim Short—all-white poly-microtwill with a colorful, celebratory accent. As for function, there's a quick-dry mesh interior and deep side pockets, too. It's the style that truly impresses, with retro dolphin splits at the side hem and a no-show rise. The brand is also making a donation to The Trevor Project.

UO + GLSEN
Pride 2018 Rainbow Tote Bag
$20

This mesh tote bag—complete with rainbow strap—is made by UO in collaboration with GLSEN, an organization that's aiming to create more LGBTQ-inclusive schools. With a mission that benefits both children and teens, the group was founded by a small team of teachers 25 years ago. UO will be donating $10 from the sale of each tote directly to GLSTEN in celebration and support of Pride.

First Second
Brazen: Rebel Ladies Who Rocked the World
$13

Graphic novelist Pénélope Bagieu grew up idolizing mostly men, but it was—as she found out—not because there were few women role models for her, but just less visibility. Through plenty of wit, charm and inspiration, Bagieu's "Brazen: Rebel Ladies Who Rocked the World" shows young people (and those who need a reminder) that there are and were plenty of inspiring women doing brave and significant things all over the world. From Naziq al-Abid to Nellie Bly, Mae Jemison, Josephine Baker and others, these women provide hope and motivation—perhaps at a time we need it most.

ASOS
GLAAD& Oversized Sweatshirt
$45

With the message of "Unity &" embroidered in an array of colors on the front, ASOS's GLAAD-partnered oversized sweatshirt reads loud and clear. The unisex item offers a roomy, active fit. Further, 25% of the proceeds from every shirt sold go to GLAAD—an organization protecting love equality.

Harry's
Shave With Pride Set
$25

The fact that no two handles are exactly alike—thanks to a truly unique, celebratory and mystifying iridescent finish—is only a sliver of the allure emanating from the razor in Harry's new Shave With Pride set. The handles are a clever take on the rainbow association, of course, but it's really the fact that 100% of all profits get donated to LGBTQ charities including GLAAD, APLA Health, Self Evident Truths Project, True Colors Fund and more. And again, usefulness remains at the forefront, with three German-engineered blade cartridges and a foaming shave shave (though, cream is an alternative) also in the kit.

Blue Bottle
Cold Brew Bottle
$35

Make your own cold brew at home with Blue Bottle's handy, foolproof Cold Brew Bottle—all you need is ground coffee beans, water and time. Made in collaboration with Japanese company Hario, the bottle is crafted from dishwasher-safe components made from glass, silicone rubber, polypropylene and polyester and has a built-in filter. Simply add ground coffee to the filter, fill the bottle with fresh water and refrigerate for at least eight hours—after that just pour out your icy cold coffee and enjoy.

Warby Parker
Haskell Prism Sunglasses
$95

With $10,000 each going to The Trevor Project and Lambda Legal—two organizations that offer support to the LGBTQ community in a multitude of ways—Warby Parker's "Prism" collection of Haskell-style sunglasses offers a rainbow of colorways. From pink to red, blue and beyond, the new colorways are bright and statement-making—and our pick is Amethyst Crystal.

The Shining Overlook Hotel
The Shining Overlook Hotel Rug
$2,500

In runner form, famed designer David Hicks' orange and red hexagonal-patterned carpet accents the home of any Stanley Kubrick fan. Fortunately, however, it doesn't overwhelm with the same shocking sensations one finds within Kubrick's film The Shining, which features the pattern from wall to wall in The Overlook Hotel. It's just the right amount of reference, without being too garish or kitsch. Further, this officially licensed, limited edition rug is custom-made and hand-tufted from one-ply wool. Price is in Pounds.

Burero + Carver
The Ahi Cruiser
$195

Burero—who makes products made from recycled materials—has teamed up with skate brand Carver for an environmentally kind skateboard: the Ahi. With materials collected via the Bureo-founded Net Positiva initiative—a fishnet collection and recycling program in Chile—the Ahi is a a 27-inch cruiser with nine-inch wheels. Shaped with a concave deck and double kick-tail, the Ahi is designed for the pavement, but inspired by the ocean.

Poppy Lissiman
Pride Necklace
$135

Celebrating the LGBTQ+ community, Perth-based designer Poppy Lissiman's "Pride" necklace is made from 18k gold-plated sterling silver and high-quality rainbow-colored cubic zirconia. 10% of the profits are donated to Rainbow International, an organization dedicated to empowering LGBTQ+ rights activists in countries where gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender people are criminalized. Price is in AUD.

Lambda Legal
Support Trans Lives Tank Top
$25

The message is clear on Lambda Legal's Support Trans tank: it says "SUED" on the front and "SUPPORT TRANS LIVES" on the back. The pink and blue text pops against the white jersey cotton tank. But most importantly, all funds received go to support Lambda Legal's lawsuit against the ban of transgender people in the military.

Converse
Pride + Miley Cyrus Chuck Taylor All Star High-Tops
$70

Year after year, Converse finds ways to bring a rainbow's worth of color to their annual Pride Collection. This time they enlisted the help of Miley Cyrus and the many designs convey true joy. Our favorite unisex style features glittery polka dots on the canvas upper—but there's a surprise underneath as well. We truly love the collection though because all net proceeds will support the Happy Hippie Foundation, a non-profit benefiting LGBTQ youth.

Prospective Flow
Suna Hat
$80

Translated from Japanese, Sashiko stitching means "little stabs" or "little pierces." This is the technique with which Prospective Flow's Suna Hat has been crafted. Made from 100% cotton, this tulip style accessory is durable and packable—perfect for getaways. Available in three colorways—faded black, olive or natural—this off-white is our pick.

Jeremy Deller
"I Blame the Internet" Print
$1,800

Conceptual, video and installation artist Jeremy Deller's "I Blame the Internet" print combines relatable sentiment, comedy, charm and perhaps a legitimate tech-fear. The piece, screen-printed on mirrored card-stock, was part of an edition of 150 and measures 17.7 by 25.2 inches. A divergence from his oftentimes political works, this piece comments on mass communication, connection and popular culture. (Price is in British Pounds.)

Milk
Limited Edition Pride Pack
$28

With silver, rainbow-flecked glitter gloss (made for lips and/or skin) and an equality temporary tattoo stamp, Milk's Pride Pack is sheer celebration. All products included are vegan, cruelty- and talc-free. During June, the company is donating 50% of the packs' sales to The Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual & Transgender Community Center (aka The Center) which offers support, education and events for NYC's LGBTQ communities.

Aelfie
Poolside Indoor/Outdoor Rug
$65

Available in five different sizes, this indoor/outdoor rug can be a picnic blanket, living room tapestry, poolside rug and more. Crafted from 100% PET—a fiber made from recycled plastic soda bottles—it's environmentally friendly and top quality. Soft and wool-like to the touch, it can be vacuumed, shaken or even hosed so cleaning is easy.

Poketo
"As I Am" Pin
$10

Right to the point, Poketo's colorful "As I Am" lapel pin is made to celebrate you as you are. Plus, for the month of June, 50% of the proceeds from sales with go directly to the Los Angeles LGBT Center, which offers the community support regarding health, housing, social services, education, leadership, advocacy and more. Last month the organization opened their 3,000-square-foot Trans Wellness Center—which is the result of six different local organizations joining forces.

Revel and Riot
"Queers for Fears" T-Shirt
$29

This all-genders, four-color printed T-shirt boasts a delightful take on the '80s English pop band Tears for Fears. Reading "Queers for Fears—angrier and scarier than ever," the shirt is made from 100% jersey knit, heavyweight cotton and is available from small to XXXL. Best of all, Revel and Riot is an LGBTQ non-profit organization that also donates proceeds to other significant organizations all year—not just during Pride Month.
