Show your Pride this Mardi Gras with the help of these standout footwear and apparel lines.
Dedicated to celebrating the LGBTQIA+ community, Mardi Gras is one of the most fabulous events on the social calendar. While COVID-19 has changed the way we'll be celebrating it this year, there's no reason you can't still go all out with a rainbow outfit or two.
Whether you're showing your Pride or offering your support, there are plenty of Pride-themed collections now available to shop. Better yet, some of them are donating the profits to help aid the LGBTQIA+ community, giving you plenty of incentive to add to cart.
Denim giant Levi's is always one of the first to throw its support behind the LGBTQIA+ community during Mardi Gras, and this year is no exception. The company recently dropped its 2021 Pride line, which features a range of unisex jackets, jumpsuits, logo tanks and more.
Titled, "All Pronouns. All Love.", this year's collection is all about the importance of learning and respecting pronoun use.
100% of the net proceeds from the range will also be donated to OutRight Action International to help defend and advance human rights for LGBTQIA+ people around the globe.
