Disney Releases Its First-Ever Collection of LGBTQ Pride Merchandise
While we’re still hoping for more queer inclusion in Disney’s narratives and characters, one area they’re finally gaying up is their merchandise, releasing a full, brand new LGBTQ pride collection just in time for June. The Disney Pride Collection is also raising money for a really good cause, giving us more reason to celebrate its inclusion in Disney stores.
Starting this week, Disney’s LGBTQ fans and allies can purchase everything from rainbow tank tops to rainbow sunglasses. It appears to be the first year Disney has released a full collection of LGBTQ pride gear. Everything is available for purchase on their website, where fans can buy anything from Disney pride pins to fitted tank tops to rainbow Mickey collection travel packs.
From now until June 30, the company says they’ll donate 10% of their profits to GLSEN (formerly the Gay, Lesbian & Straight Education Network), a non-profit organization that advocates on behalf of LGBTQ students in schools.
