Brought to life with LGBTQ+ artists, sto­ries of love set the stage for Con­verse’s 2018 Pride Col­lec­tion

Q Magazine - - Q Comment -

Pride rep­re­sents the in­cred­i­ble progress made pos­si­ble when voices come to­gether and speak out. The global move­ment demon­strates that a spark can ul­ti­mately change the course for gen­er­a­tions to come, and serves as a re­minder that there is more work to be done ev­ery­where.

Born out of the Con­verse Pride Em­ployee Net­work, the Con­verse Pride Col­lec­tion car­ries this spirit as the brand’s an­nual Pride cel­e­bra­tion. It also serves as a small con­tri­bu­tion for those that have paved the way and con­tinue to ad­vo­cate for peo­ple of all ages to be their true selves to­day.

De­signed by Mi­ley Cyrus, a por­tion of net pro­ceeds of the Con­verse Pride Col­lec­tion will sup­port LGBTQ+ youth com­mu­nity part­ners glob­ally, in­clud­ing the Happy Hip­pie Foun­da­tion, It Gets Bet­ter Project, Mi­nus 18 (Aus­tralia) and Rain­bowYOUTH (New Zealand).

In ad­di­tion to the full streetwear uni­form de­signed for PRIDE cel­e­bra­tions, Con­verse worked with these com­mu­nity part­ners to so­cially cu­rate state­ments of hope and love from LGBTQ+ youth as they get ready for Pride 2018. The Con­verse Pride Col­lec­tion by Mi­ley Cyrus is avail­able now ex­clu­sively on www.con­verse.com.au with ap­parel start­ing from RRP $60 and footwear start­ing at RRP $130
