Levi’s is launching a special collection dedicated to Harvey Milk, American politician who became the first openly gay person to be elected to public office in California back in the 1977.
Levi’s said : “Our company is not afraid to take a stand on the important issues of our time. From supporting policies ensuring equality for the LGBTQ community, to the Levi Strauss Foundation’s support of LGBTQ advocacy organizations around the world, to employee participation in the annual SF Pride Parade – celebrating LGBTQ rights is a part of our DNA.”
This (election) year, we’re proud to announce our third annual Pride collection honoring the legacy of Harvey Milk, an outspoken, courageous and pioneering individual whose inspiring example will never be forgotten.
Levi’s teamed up with the Harvey Milk Foundation, to launch the global Levi’s® x Harvey Milk Foundation Pride 2016 Collection.
This collaboration bring a gender neutral collection which includes items such as an exclusive ringer T-shirt and tank top, both with a Harvey Milk bottle graphic and pride timeline, a trucker jacket emblazoned with Harvey Milk’s inspiring quote “Hope will never be silent,” and stonewashed shorts with rainbow embroidered watch pocket and Harvey Milk patches.
The collection will be leading up in the next few months to match with PRIDE 2016 in June. A portion of the proceeds from the collection will go towards the Harvey Milk Foundation.
