Abercrombie & Fitch's Pride FAILAbercrombie & Fitch tried to do something nice for Pride week but it failed miserably. Hannah Cranston, Mark Thompson, and Amberia Allen, the hosts of The Young Turks, break it down. Tell us what you think in the comment section below. https://tytnetwork.com/join/
“Pride Month isn’t just for LGBTQ Americans—at least, that’s what Abercrombie and Fitch said in a tweet intended to support the Trevor Project. And LGBTQ activists are outraged by the clothing line’s statement.
“The Pride community is everybody, not just LGBTQ people,” Abercrombie and Fitch tweeted, quoting a merchandiser with the brand called Kayla. Intended to promote Abercrombie’s partnership with the Trevor Project, the tweet essentially implies that Pride isn’t by and for LGBTQ people.
But Pride is fundamentally centered around the queer community. Created as a commemoration of the Stonewall Riots on June 28, 1969, LGBTQ activists feel that taking Pride away from LGBTQ people is essentially depoliticizing the month. And advocates took to Twitter in protest, mocking the tweet and calling on Abercrombie to do better.”
