Raisa Flowers and other young LGBTQ+ faces join ASOS and GLAAD in celebrating love, pride, and unity
If ASOS didn’t already have everything you need for the Summer, they’ve really got your fix now.
ASOS has partnered with nonprofit LGBTQ+ rights organization,Â GLAAD, to create a colorful capsule collection (how do you like a quadruple alliteration?) in honor of Pride Month. These pieces are everything you’ve been asking for and more.
Colorful, yet wearable, eclectic, yet refined â€“ the collection, which launches today, is quite diversified, not unlike those who model it.
The collection will be offered in both plus and curve sizing, with prices ranging fromÂ $5.00 to $87.00. And, of course,Â 25% of the collection’s proceeds will go directly to GLAAD.
The campaign features many names and faces that will likely ring familiar to you. Tommy Dorfman, for example, is an actor and performer from Atlanta, GA, who you may now know as Ryan Shaver on the breakthrough Netflix Original Series “13 Reasons Why,” based on the book by Jay Asher. Tommy is openly gay, recently married, and extremely passionate about demanding rights for theÂ LGBTQ+ community.
Also featured in the collection is Raisa Flowers, a plus-sized model and makeup artist who has been taking the industry by storm. Raisa challenges antiquated societal conventions regarding beauty and body image that are helping contribute to a dialogue of acceptance and shifting stigma.
The visionary has taken her expertise both behind and in front of the camera, and her point of view is helping shift the way we see things in the industry and the world at large.
The collection is available exclusively through ASOS and features a total of 22 pieces, ranging from things these patchwork like overalls:
To these graphic tops:
And these fannypacks:
To this beautiful embroidered denim jacket, which simply reads: UNITYÂ & EQUALITYÂ & ACCEPTANCE. No need for subtlety.
How could you not love these pieces? Or at the very least, these passionate artists and advocates?
Shop the entire collection on ASOS.
ASOS and GLAAD will also be walking in the New York City Pride Parade thisÂ Sunday, June 24 to help spread the messageâ€“ join them!
You have my earnest, wholehearted blessing to drain your savings accountÂ (who needs it?) to cash out on these beautiful pieces for a good cause.
