AEO + IT GETS BETTER

INTRODUCING AEO + IT GETS BETTER

Over the last seven years, the It Gets Better Project has successfully leveraged the influential power of media to uplift and empower LGBTQ youth around the world. From an unprecedented social media campaign to a best-selling book to award-winning television programming, we are always seeking new ways to get our message of hope into the hearts and minds of those who need it most.

We have witnessed tremendous progress on a global scale toward greater acceptance for LGBTQ people. Yet, today, our youth are bombarded with threats to their civil liberties and, in some cases, their lives, because the communities they call home refuse to accept them. Our partnership with American Eagle Outfitters for the #WeAllCan campaign is the perfect collaboration to ensure that LGBTQ youth know they have the potential to achieve great things and to make a tangible and positive difference in the world. And, it provides an opportunity for those who love the American Eagle Outfitters brand to wear their support of a more inclusive world!

The social narrative is always changing. We know how to change that narrative, and the support of forward-thinking organizations, like American Eagle Outfitters, makes that change possible. Together, we will amplify our message of hope until every single person on this planet understands the intrinsic value we all possess as human beings. We owe it to our youth, we owe it to ourselves, and we owe it to the future of our society. Life can and will get better for LGBTQ youth — and for everyone else — when we start celebrating our differences and adopt a #WeAllCan attitude.

Love is Love: World Pride 2016

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 fourth year, American Eagle Outfitters is proud to be a supporter of Pittsburgh Pride taking place on the streets of downtown close to our Headquarters on June 12th. And there are many events taking place all over the globe this month! On June 26th, New York City and San Francisco will be hosting their annual themed March and Pride Parade, respectively. We wanted to support the cause too!  So we designed limited edition “Love is Love” t-shirts, underwear and temporary tattoos that will be sold in select stores and online!  To help ensure that these events continue to take place all over the globe, 100% of sales will be donated to InterPride. Read on to learn more about InterPride, what they stand for and the amazing work that they do.
