Converse LGBT-Themed Line in Time for Pride Month, No Support for Causes?

Converse Pride Collection

Shoe and sports apparel maker Converse has started to introduce a line of LGBT-themed items. It seems to be made to coincide with the lead up to Pride Month in June, and beyond the inclusion of the LGBT rainbow, they’ve added ways to customize the designs.

The brand has not announced that proceeds from the sale of these LGBT-themed products will go to help any LGBT causes. This has rubbed some in the community the wrong way, as Converse is charging $80 for the shoes, and many feel they’re using the Pride message purely for profit.
