Converse Celebrates the LGBTIQ Community With New Pride Collection

Show off your appreciation for all things rainbow.

Nothing says 'I support LGTBIQ' like a new pair of kicks, and that's exactly what footwear giant Converse thinks too. Upon release of the second annual Pride Collection this June you can proudly display your appreciation for all things rainbow by sporting just that, rainbows on your feet, to accompany your already undoubtedly pro-LGBTIQ street style.

In honour of Pride month, Converse is releasing limited edition multi-coloured Chuck Taylor All Stars, and All Star '70s. Featuring bold patterns and bolder colours, you definitely won't blend in wearing a pair of these — which is the point right? With a portion of sales from the collection going to Rainbow Youth, the charitable organisation that supports the young queer and gender diverse (LGBTIQ), as well as their communities, why not get amongst it and support such a worthy cause.

Advocating under the slogan 'Yes To All', Converse's message is simple — no matter what your sexual orientation, gender or identity, everybody deserves the right to express themselves for who they are and what they feel.

The Converse Pride Collection launches this Friday, June 2.
