Ralph Lauren and the Ralph Lauren Corporate Foundation continue their three-decade-old tradition of supporting the LGBTQIA+ community in the Pride Month of June,through volunteer activations, corporate initiatives and financial grants.
Ralph Lauren is spotlighting select muralists who are a part of the LGBTQIA+ community, to highlight their creativity and unique stories. The company has partnered with Stonewall Community Foundation to donate a portion of the purchase price of each item of their Polo Pride capsule collection sold to benefit LGBTQIA+ organizations around the world. Stonewall Community Foundation prioritizes and uplifts those who experience the greatest vulnerability within the community, including communities of color and transgender, gender non-conforming, and non-binary people. Ralph Lauren stands for a community where all voices matter and where all differences are celebrated; creativity, self-expression, individuality, authenticity, diversity and inclusion are integral parts of the brand’s DNA.
This month in June, the company is partnering with artists David Puck in NY and Ashton Attz in London, both of whom are part of the LGBTQIA+ community, to create artistic outdoor murals to celebrate and honor Pride month. Starting June 15th through 27th, David Puck will create and feature a silo mural canvas in Domino Park, Brooklyn that represents their personal expression of who they are and what they believe; while Ashton Attz will paint her own Pride-inspired mural in Notting Hill.
The Polo Pride capsule collection is gender-neutral, available in adult and youth sizes and features the iconic Polo Pony reimagined in rainbow colors. The collection consists of a Polo shirt, graphic tee, tank top, sweatshirt, flag sweater, belt bag, baseball cap, water bottle, socks, and a dog Polo. 100% of the purchase price from the sale of each Polo shirt and dog Polo shirt, and 25% of the purchase price from the sale of each graphic tee, sweatshirt, flag sweater, belt bag, baseball cap, and socks will be donated to Stonewall Community Foundation. Additionally, Ralph Lauren Fragrances will continue to offer its limited-edition Pride packaging on select fragrances along with a supplemental donation to Stonewall Community Foundation, and Ralph Lauren Eyewear is introducing its first Pride eyewear, with a supplemental donation to Stonewall Community Foundation
