Launched in December 2017, our Pride Collection was created by Red Parka's founder/artist, Jen, and her partner in life, love and creativity, Tracy
We wanted to do something to both celebrate and support the LGBTQIA+ community, looking positively towards the future after the challenges of 2017. These products are our shout out to the world - we are gay, we are happy and we are free to be ourselves. And so are you!!
However, we know from first hand experience that it's not always easy to be yourself in this world. And many in the LGBTQIA+ community have faced, and continue to face, far greater challenges than we ever have. And so, we wanted to do something positive, to use the platform we have here at Red Parka to help.
Through Red Parka, we have committed to donating 50% of our profits to humanitarian and conservation charities and organisations working to create a better, more equal world for us all!
In this way, we aim to support the LGBTQIA+ community and make a difference, both here in Australia and around the world where many of our community still struggle for recognition and even survival. We hope that our products themselves will spread joy, while the money we donate will help support vital equality, freedom and health projects.
