“Pride means stand-up and be proud, and come out, and don’t let fear keep you in,” said Eric Hause, who attended Wednesday’s pride party in Orlando, Florida.
Pride parties and parades, by the way, are being held in different places around the globe this month and not just in Orlando because June is designated in the US (and later in the whole world) as Pride Month to recognize the impact that lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender individuals have had on history.
In support of the LGBTA (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Allies) community and in celebration of Pride Month around the globe, Converse proudly unveils its 2016 Pride Collection which echoes the creativity of all consumers.
Two colorful new Chuck Taylor All Star sneakers designed to be worn at pride parades, concerts, jubilations and beyond take the spotlight this month. Inspired by all the LGBTA communities around the world, the collection serves as a passionate reminder for universal tolerance, diversity and equality — encouraging the creative community to be their most authentic selves.
Launching this season on the classic Converse Chuck Taylor hi and ox silhouettes, the sneakers have rainbow license plate and aglets. The collection will be available in both woven canvas and an all-over rainbow splattered canvas design and boldly shows Converse’s support of the global pride movement.
Rallying the world to unleash their creativity and support universal tolerance and equality, the new 2016 Converse Pride Collection is now available at Converse stores for Php 3,990.
