To celebrate Pride, Topshop Topman have collaborated with Charles Jeffrey to curate an exclusive collection of t-shirts featuring original artworks from five young LGBTQI+ artists.
Each of the artworks, personally commissioned by Jeffrey, celebrates one of five rights which have been fought for by the LGBTQI+ community in the UK.
“Our community is alive with really vital talent, and in pulling together this project I wanted to spotlight some of the image-makers I think deserve to be seen. I'm glad we could anchor the message into one of both gratitude and awareness; gratitude to everyone who fought for the rights we currently have in the UK, and an awareness of those people around the world who may not yet be so lucky."

Thirty percent of all profits from the sale of these t-shirts will be donated to us at Diversity Role Models, to support our work to prevent homophobic, biphobic and transphobic bullying in uk schools by educating young people about difference; challenging stereotypes and addressing the misuse of language.
The collection launches online at both www.topshop.com and www.topman.com on Thursday 21st June and will be available across six UK Topshop Topman stores including Glasgow, Charles Jeffrey’s hometown, from Friday 22nd June.
