This month kicks off Pride Month in the United States. Celebrated each June to commemorate the 1969 Stonewall Uprising in New York, which catalyzed the gay rights movement, this month-long event brings together the LGBTQ+ community and its allies to recognize and celebrate the impact LGBTQ+ people have had worldwide.

This year at Kontoor Brands, we are celebrating Pride Month by supporting organizations that  raise awareness for issues facing the LGBTQ+ community. In partnership with their LGBTQ+ Inclusion for Everyone (LIFE) employee resource group, employees at their Greensboro headquarters had the opportunity to participate in a t-shirt design contest. The winning design will be featured on t-shirts which will be available for employees and Greensboro residents to purchase during the month. All proceeds from the sale will go to support the Guilford Green Foundation, a local organization that advocates for equality and inclusion for LGBTQ+ communities.
