Happy Pride Month! To celebrate the brightest, most colourful time of the year, we’ve rounded up beauty brands we love that are giving back to the queer community by supporting LGBTQ2S+ charities during Pride Month. These Pride collections, launches and limited-edition releases directly benefit the queer community, so when you’re shopping for beauty products, make a positive impact with your wallet by supporting brands that give back.

Learn more about the beauty brands that are giving back for Pride Month, and the charities they’re supporting, below.
