To show their support for the black and LGBTQ+ communities, Effen has launched a special edition Pride bottle in collaboration with not-for-profit organisation, Allies in Arts. Commissioning street artist and muralist Sam Kirk, the bottle design celebrates the vibrancy of the black and LGBTQ+ communities with a proportion of sales being donated to support underrepresented artists.
Together with Pride

Using the concept that ‘boxes are for cereal, not people’, Kellogg’s have collaborated with GLAAD to celebrate that no matter who you are or who you love, you are too awesome to fit into a (cereal) box. To highlight the importance of everyone having a place at the table, Kellogg’s will donate $3 for every box purchased, to support GLAAD’s work in ensuring equality for the LGBTQ+ community.
Everyone is awesome

Launching their first ever LGBTQ+ set, LEGO has created 11 multi-coloured mini-figures to help generations imagine a brighter future. The figures allow the expression of individuality for all, regardless of race, gender or sexuality by reflecting the original rainbow flag, pale blue and white to represent the transgender community and black and brown to acknowledge diverse ethnic backgrounds.
