June is when people around the world are celebrating sexual diversity and raising awareness for the current problems that the community is facing. This year has been challenging from the start, with a pandemic, and now protests against racism and police brutality.

New York City was chosen to be the host location for WorldPride 2019. In the light of Pride Month, we are exploring how brands supported the LGBT community last year.
