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.
