Pittsburgh, Toronto, New York City and San Francisco are not only some of the greatest cities in the world – they also happen to be just a few of the many cities that support a cause that is near and dear to our hearts… Love.
For the third year, American Eagle Outfitters is proud to be a supporter of Pittsburgh Pride on June 13th taking place on the streets of downtown close to our Headquarters. Following Pittsburgh, a series of events will take place starting on June 19th to make up the WorldPride Festival in Toronto. On June 28th, New York City will kickoff it’s pride events with a rally and on June 27th-28th, San Francisco will host it’s annual themed Pride Celebration. We wanted to support the cause too! So we designed limited edition tanks and t-shirts for men and women and are selling them online and in select AEO stores! To help ensure that these events continue to take place all over the globe, we will be donating 15% of the proceeds from every purchase to InterPride. Read on to learn more about InterPride, what they stand for and the amazing work that they do.
