Amandla Stenberg joins Calvin Klein Pride campaign

Words by Tess Becker

This Pride Month we’re seeing organizations and companies stepping up to support LGBT+ communities. The latest company to do so is the fashion brand, Calvin Klein, in its campaign with actor Amandla Stenberg.

The campaign, called "Let it Out!", celebrates the collective euphoria at the heart of the LGBTQIA+ community. 

Stenberg, is known for her roles in movies like Bodies, Bodies, Bodies, and The Hunger Games. She is an active advocate of the queer community and is gay herself. For her, the opportunity to serve in a Pride campaign like this is a big deal. 

“It’s a blessing when I can advocate through the exposure my job provides. Ultimately that is my goal,” she said. 

Beyond the campaign, Calvin Klein is supporting the LGBTQIA+ community through partnerships with nonprofits and committing over $220,000 to nonprofits such as PFLAG National, ILGA World, and Transgender Law Center, while Calvin Klein Australia and the PVH Foundation donated $55,000 USD to BlaQ Aboriginal Corporation.

Happy Pride everyone!
