Big Brands Support LGBT Pride Month

Big brands are supporting the LGBT community this month for Pride. Their advertising campaigns help promote inclusiveness, equality, self-affirmation and sexual diversity.

Every year in June, millions of people gather to celebrate LGBT history, community and diversity around the world. Major cities host pride parades, parties, workshops, concerts and more to recognize lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender individuals and their fight against discrimination and violence. These celebratory events promote self-affirmation, equality, sexual diversity and gender variance opposed to shame and social stigma.

Many big brands are showing their support for LGBT Pride Month through creative, ingenuous and socially aware ad campaigns. This is a great opportunity for brands to spark conversations, promote inclusiveness and bring in a significant amount of responses and data.
