MACY’S SHOWS PRIDE: In honor of National Pride Month, the Human Rights Campaign has once again partnered with Macy’s. The retailer will feature new HRC merchandise at select locations including Macy’s Beverly Center, Easton (Columbus, Ohio), Fountain Place (Cincinnati, Ohio), Downtown Minneapolis, Union Square (San Francisco) and West County, St. Louis, Mo. throughout the month of June, which is LGBTQ Pride Month. HRC’s “Everyone-Everywhere” and “I Stand On the Right Side of History” merchandise will be displayed on T-shirts, hats and accessories throughout the stores, and 100 percent of the proceeds will go towards HRC’s fight for equality.
“Over the course of the three years of HRC’s pop-up partnership with Macy’s, the LGBTQ equality landscape has rapidly changed with significant victories all across this country,” said Don Kiser, creative director of HRC. He added that he’s happy that Macy’s once again “proudly stands with us on the right side of history as we remain fully committed to bringing full equality to everyone, everywhere.”
“We are happy to celebrate National Pride Month with our employees, customers and the LGBTQ community through our annual Pride + Joy campaign,” said William Hawthorne, senior vice-president, Diversity Strategies and Legal Affairs at Macy’s, Inc. “Not only are we able to support the LGBTQ community through festive celebrations and community initiatives, but we are also giving back through our long-standing support of the Human Rights Campaign, as well as the support we provide to local organizations that are making a difference in this community.”
