Usually we would have been fundraising during Pride this summer; in fact 60% of our fundraised income is raised during Pride season. With all pride events cancelled and our usual fundraising activities halted, we launched our #StillProud campaign to help raise much needed funds. We have been delighted to see so many people get involved and come up with creative ways to fundraise during the pandemic. We are especially excited to share this fundraiser with you:
To mark the end of this year’s Pride month and to show their ongoing support for their LGBTQI+ fans and friends, Glasgow electronic synthpop band CHVRCHES have made a special benefit tee. All proceeds will go towards our #StillProud campaign and will help us support LGBTI young people during this pandemic and beyond.
When asked why they had decided to support our work, the band told us:
"We wanted to help fundraise for LGBT Youth Scotland because they do such important work when it comes to supporting the young Scottish LGBTQI community. The pandemic has upended things for so many people and we wanted to do what we can to make sure LGBTYS can keep providing resources and support for people who need it. It's important to us that all our fans to know that we are here for them as friends and allies."
The limited edition ’Love is Not Dead’ tee is available via the band’s merch store and will only be available for a short period. Order yours now:
