You bee-auty! For­mer Lord Mayor de­signs Pride cases

Manchester Evening News - - NEWS -

THE for­mer Lord Mayor of Manch­ester Carl Austin-Be­han has de­signed a range of travel cases ded­i­cated to cel­e­brat­ing LGBT pride.

Carl, the first openly gay Lord Mayor of Manch­ester and new LGBT ad­vi­sor to the city, has teamed up with travel ac­ces­sory de­signer and man­u­fac­turer Kitkase to cre­ate a bold and colour­ful case rais­ing funds for The Al­bert Kennedy Trust.

The idea for the new Pride Edi­tion range came about af­ter Carl saw the work Kitkase were do­ing for the We Love MCR fund by cre­at­ing their Manch­ester worker bee cases, which has been seen with a host of celebs.

He con­tacted the com­pany and they pro­duced a range de­signed by Carl and ded­i­cated to sup­port­ing the LGBT com­mu­nity, with 25 per cent of the prof­its go­ing to home­less char­ity The Al­bert Kennedy Trust – which sup­ports LGBT young peo­ple who are home­less, liv­ing in a hos­tile en­vi­ron­ment or in hous­ing cri­sis.

The two case de­signs are avail­able to pre-or­der now on kitkase.com and are priced at £54.99.
