Perfect For Pride - 'Shave With Pride' Set From LGBTQ Ally Harry's

Even though I'm a beard kinda guy, I still have to shave to trim things up to look neat and presentable (for those times when I'm not at my computer blogging).

So, I was stoked to see this 'Shave with Pride' set by Harry's - the men's grooming company.

I discovered Harry's shaving blades years ago and I'm a fan. They're high quality and their prices can't be beat.

But their Shave with Pride set is way cool.

Encased in a colorful, distinctive box designed by artist José Roda to represent the individualism of the LGBTQ community, the set comes with a rainbow no-two-are-alike iridescent handle, three blades, shave gel and a travel cover to protect fingers when fishing in a dock kit while traveling.

But wait - there's more!

While the set costs just $25, Harry's is donating 100% of the proceeds to The Trevor Project, the leading national organization providing crisis intervention and suicide prevention services to LGBTQ youth.

You're basically making a donation to The Trevor Project and getting this way cool shave set as a bonus!

Makes a great Father's Day gift, too, folks :)

Harry's has a long history as an ally for the LGBTQ community.

In April, the grooming company released a new ad that causally includes a transgender man in the spot with narration that tells them, “You can shave to feel like you.”

The one-minute spot by the men’s grooming brand, titled ‘Shave, or Don’t,’ makes it clear Harry’s has your back whether you shave or not.

Last year, the shaving giant debuted their Shave with Pride set (designed by Craig & Karl) celebrating Pride Month with 100% of the profits going to GLAAD, which works through entertainment, news, and digital media to share stories from the LGBTQ community that accelerate acceptance.

And, Harry’s is a proud sponsor of London Pride.

“Harry’s has a proud history of working with organizations that help challenge out-dated stereotypes and who aim to shift attitudes and behaviors that devalue marginalized groups,” said Harry’s co-founder Jeff Raider.

“Our support for Pride is a natural extension of that. As a company, we embrace individuality and celebrate diversity, so we’re extremely proud to be an LGBTQ+ ally.”

The men’s grooming brand also produced an acclaimed three-minute short film on the meaning of ‘masculinity’ featuring a young boy explaining how to be a man to an alien.

I'm told the Shave with Pride set has been so popular, Harry's website was cleaned out. But, you can still order by clicking over to Target here.
