Macy’s Supports Pride Month
June 2, 2015,
NEW YORK-Macy’s is honoring National Pride Month this month with participation in 23 Pride parades, special events in-store and a partnership with The Trevor Project.
The Trevor Project is a national organization providing crisis intervention and suicide prevention services to lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and questioning young people ages 13-24.
“Inclusion is part of Macy’s core values,” said William Hawthorne, senior vice president, diversity strategies and legal affairs, Macy’s, Inc. “We are happy to celebrate national Pride Month with our employees, customers and the LGBTQ community through festive celebrations, as well as by providing support to organizations like The Human Rights Campaign and The Trevor Project which are making a positive difference in the community.”
“The Trevor Project speaks to and supports more than 100,000 LGBTQ youth on an annual basis. However, for each call, text or chat we receive, we know there are youth out there that may not know about or don’t have the resources to connect to the services we provide. The Trevor Project is honored and thankful to work with national corporate sponsors like Macy’s to ensure that our mission is heard and supported by as many people as possible,” said Abbe Land, executive director and CEO, The Trevor Project.
