This Underwear Company Donates Money To LGBTQ+ Youth When You Buy These Pride Undies
The best way to celebrate who you are is to do so without stress, without worry... and without your clothes.
That's why, with Pride Month slowly approaching, the "ultimate feel good" underwear brand MeUndies is eager to lend a hand to the LGBTQ+ community with its brand-new "Celebrate Yourself" campaign.
"The campaign was born out of our team's desire to be a part of LA Pride," MeUndies Creative Director Andrew Teague tells Elite Daily.
Over the last couple of years we've been out there, a little underprepared and scrappy but we had some fun, handed out undies, and did what we could to spread a little joy on the day. It was great but we knew we could do more. So immediately after last year's event we started planning for this one, and making it a priority - suddenly it's become our largest campaign ever.
Looking to emphasize diversity and acceptance around the world, MeUndies has developed a brand-new "Celebrate" print (a white and rainbow-colored polka dot design) that goes way beyond a simple pair of underwear.

With every pair that's sold, MeUndies will donate $1 to the Los Angeles LGBT Center, the world's largest organization for LGBT health and advocacy, to help support and grow its Youth Center.
We met with the Los Angeles LGBT Center and learned more about what they do, the vital services they provide as well as a lot of the issues that they are facing. When they told us that between 60 and 70% of their funding comes from federal grants, and that most of that money is now under threat from our current political leadership, it galvanized us even further to make these undies and this campaign mean something.

To help confirm just how comfortable (and downright sexy) these new pairs look on the human form, some notable faces in LGBTQ+ community came together in nothing but their underwear to celebrate love, happiness, and the beauty of diversity.
