PRIDE 2018

This weekend, thousands of people will take to the streets of London adorned in glitter, sequins and luminous body paint, in a powerful movement supporting the LGBTQ+ community.

Pride in London has become a customary event since it began 46 years ago, with festivities continuing far beyond the parade, taking place throughout the entire month.

This year’s theme is ‘Pride Matters’ reflecting that, while Pride means many things to many people - freedom, celebration, protest - it is still as important today as when it first began.

It’s great to see brands playing their part in spreading the love, whether they are raising money, awareness or simply just showing support. 

Here’s our pick of the best Pride campaigns of 2018 ...

Harry's 'Shave with Pride' Campaign


Men’s grooming brand Harry’s has launched a limited edition metallic and rainbow coloured shaving set, packaged in a jazzy box designed by Craig & Karl. Whatsmore, Harry’s is donating 100% of the profits to LGBTQ+ causes.
