It’s finally June which only means one thing – okay, two if you count the start of summer – it’s officially time to celebrate Pride. For anyone landing on this page from out of town who needs the hetero TLDR refresher on what Pride is all about, it’s Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender+ Pride Month and it’s celebrated annually in June. Not a single Pride Month can go by without mentioning the Stonewall riots of 1969, an event that is dubbed as kickstarting the gay rights movement around the world. The famous Inn, located in Greenwich Village, New York, was a site of political struggle between the gay community and violent police who frequently raided the bar. Remembering that moment is (understandably) hugely important to the entire queer community, something that goes far beyond waving a rainbow flag and a sprinkle of glitter. However, try telling that to 90% of the brands whose colour-washed marketing rolls in on 1st June and quietly exits the party on the 30th. You know the drill - some brands will splash rainbows on everything for a mere 30 days and then won’t acknowledge the LGBTQIA+ community again until next year when it’s the done thing to do. It’s nothing new, but there’s a company out there that we’re pleased to report is stepping up to the mark: Onepiece.

Here’s How Wearing A Onesie Can Support LGBTQ+ Youths Around The Globe
Some brands love to borrow the rainbow without giving back at this time of year, but celeb-loved loungewear brand Onepiece is proudly donating to an incredible cause.
Aside from brushing up on your LGBTQ+ history, there’s no better way to prepare for the rainbow-clad month than to plan the outfits you’ll be donning to all of those glorious Pride events – particularly when you can include pieces with purpose. Onepiece’s brand new celebratory jumpsuit is covered in the colours of the Pride flag which makes it perfect for wearing to any of the national events in the UK. But beyond borrowing the flag, this iconic brand has truly tapped into everything Pride is about – colour, vibrancy, inclusiveness and giving back to the queer community, which is honestly the most important thing of all. While our obsession with all things loungewear peaked over lockdown, Onepiece has sold genderless jumpsuits since 2007. Loved by everyone from the likes of Bella Hadid and The Vivienne to last year's Pride campaign face Todrick Hall, Onepiece pride themselves on helping us all find the confidence in our own skin, with the freedom to wear whatever we want, whoever we are, which is why their Pride offering is far from a gimmick.
Their brand new 100% cotton Rainbow Pride Short Jumpsuit comes in a tie dye pattern that's as unique as whoever will wear it, with 10% of every sale donated to the It Gets Better Project - a nonprofit charity that has a mission to uplift and empower LGBTQ+ youths around the globe with dedicated media, educational resources and community activities. Back in 2010, It Gets Better was founded by activist Dan Savage and his husband Terry Miller. The charity was formed in response to the suicides of teenagers who were bullied because they were gay. With a goal to prevent suicide among LGBTQ+ youth, it’s the perfect charity to support throughout June, and knowing that buying your Pride outfit can do a bit of good? Well, it makes your gorgey look all the more meaningful.
Whether you’re headed to Brighton, London or Manchester Pride, this cute unisex cropped jumpsuit is perfect for sunny days spent marching up a storm. It will also look pretty great when you’re downing your carrier bag of hard selzters in the streets of soho. Feeling the effects? It’s also the perfect must-have for when you’re feeling a little worse for wear the morning after.
