Here's which products you should buy this month based on who you'd like to donate to. 

These days you can throw a stone in the month of June and hit a tacky rainbow raised in the name of Pride. While many corporations have jumped on the social bandwagon and started acknowledging Pride month this year, not all collaborations are created equal.

Some brands slap a rainbow on their product for the novelty of it, but others truly embrace the spirit of Pride and use their campaigns to give back to the LGBTQ community. We've separated some of our favorite 2017 Pride lines based the charities they donate to, so pick a cause, and get festive.
