Rainbow stripes can be seen in full bloom this month as the LGBTQ community — and its allies — continue to celebrate and make a statement about equality and inclusion.

This year’s Pride month is especially resonant as 2019 marks the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall Uprising in New York, when police raided the Stonewall Inn, a gay bar on Christopher Street in Greenwich Village. The incident is being acknowledged this month during New York’s annual Pride festivities as part of WorldPride activities in the city. In addition to its annual Pride parade, the festivities in New York will close with a June 30 performance by Madonna, who received the Advocate for Change Award at the 2019 GLAAD Media Awards in May.

Brands making everything from shoes to underwear and jewelry to T-shirts have embraced all things Pride — and are finding ways to support the LBGTQ community. Here’s a sampling of ways to get into the spirit.
