The world is made of many cultures, perspectives and opinions, and the only way to grow is to appreciate all of these different viewpoints together. That is why Dolce & Gabbana is working to contribute to the LGBT community, supporting the next generation of visionaries that are ready to influence the fashion world.
Dolce & Gabbana Supports LGBT Youth
Young people have amazing ideas that could take the world by storm, but many of them don’t have the chance to explore those concepts and create something impactful. This is especially true for LGBT youth, who often experience hardships in the school environment that make it difficult to reach their full potential. It’s a sad scenario that leaves so many dreams unrealized.
Dolce & Gabbana is working on ways to help. One example is the recent partnership with the Point Foundation to fund an LGBT scholarship opportunity. Young people with an interest in fashion or a related industry could get money towards their education, improving the chances of them rising in the industry and being able to share their unique style and perspective with the world one day. When more of these young LGBT voices are amplified, the fashion industry and culture benefit.
Dolce & Gabbana Embraces Love
The fashion house has also taken a more direct approach to contributing positive images to the LGBT community. One of the brand’s notable ad campaigns was based on the theme “Love Is Love” and showcased couples of different types embracing the love and joy that romance brings into your life.
With this campaign, different types of people were able to see themselves in the Dolce & Gabbana world, enjoying the luxury of exquisitely crafted clothing in a sophisticated atmosphere with the one you love, no matter who you love. It’s an important statement from the company, saying everyone has the chance to experience the elegance that is created at Dolce & Gabbana.
Helping LGBT Community Partners
One of the most important ways Dolce & Gabbana has worked to support the LGBT community is to boost the organizations that have been doing important work for people in need. That’s why the company has supported The Trevor Project. It is one of the largest crisis intervention and suicide prevention groups for LGBT people in the U.S.
According to research by The Trevor Project, LGBT youth are at higher risk of negative outcomes because of the stigma and discrimination they experience from others. They can feel isolated and misunderstood, robbing the world of the amazing ideas they may have inside. This is why Dolce & Gabbana is invested in making sure there are resources available for people who need care and guidance.
Dolce & Gabbana: an Evolving Partner
As Dolce & Gabbana grows with the world, the company understands that people need new kinds of support. When it comes to the LGBT community, Dolce & Gabbana hopes to offer opportunity, visibility and kindness so that everyone feels welcome and seen and find their perfect fit in the luxury fashion brand.
