It's the Pride Month, and fashion designer Marc Jacobs certainly knows how to celebrate the all-important occasion with a bang.
While some people just let this month pass by, other people celebrate it for all the important and wonderful things in life with the LGBTQ community. As for the acclaimed 55-year-old creative soul, he took things up a notch by teaming up with several people in supporting the cause.
Jacobs launched the #GratefulNotHateful campaign that empowers the community and demonstrates that the pride is more than just parades. It brings the celebration through social media, and the hashtag is just the icing on the cake.
Across Jacobs' social media accounts, he made sure that the campaign is well heard by uploading contents that shout pride. He also tapped some influencers, famous personalities, models, and others from the community in helping him show utmost support for the cause.
"You don't have to wait for a parade, you can find ways to do that every day of your life, and someone will hear," Jacobs explained.
Some of those featured were Tracey Norman, who may be familiar for being a stellar muse and is the first African-American transgender model; Hunter Schafer; YouTube sensation Manny Gutierrez; and makeup artist Glam Boy Jay, among many others. They, along with Jacobs, were represented by each color from the rainbow through the use of makeup.
Dick Page, Sarah Tanno, Paul Blanch, and Diane Kendal made sure they took part of the cause and did the makeup artistry. Products used were the Highliner Gel Eye Crayons, which were from Jacobs' beauty line. That's not all. Jacobs pledged $100,000 to LGBTQ organizations, such as Le Refuge, Sage, and the Ackerman Institute for the Family.
The Highliner Gel Eye Crayons come in two finishes, matte and glossy, and are available in 30 shades, making it easy for everyone to cop off Jacobs' blue eyeshadow. The products are sold for $25. As a little treat for the brand's followers on its official Instagram account, Marc Jacobs Beauty announced that fans could get a chance to take home some of the items. All they need to do is to drop a rainbow flag emoji in the comment section.
Admirably, Jacobs has ever been a stalwart in championing and celebrating the LGBTQ community. Last year, he was recognized alongside Hillary Clinton by the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual & Transgender Community Center. He was given the Visionary Award for his efforts in the community, and he admitted that he felt weird for being acknowledged.
"It feels a little weird to be recognized when I just see myself as being true to myself," he said.
