Equality is Fashionable: Kenneth Cole Donates Profits from Repeal â€˜Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell’ Shirts; Philadelphia Store Hosts Gay Rights Event on June 12
Kenneth Cole New York will host a sales event at their Philly store location, donating proceeds of June 12 evening sales to the Human Rights Campaign.
Designer Kenneth Cole’s foundation AWEARNESS partners with The Human Rights campaign for equality, promoting equal rights for the LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual, trangender) community with a new limited edition tee shirt asking for the repeal of â€˜Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell.â€ The idea is to show support for the national repeal of the policy.
The shirt reads: â€œI want you/You’re so repealing/(Don’t ask don’t tell)â€
On Saturday, June 12 from 4:00 â€“ 8:00 p.m., Kenneth Cole New York will host an event in support of gay pride. The store will donate 20 percent of the proceeds of sales to The Human Rights Campaign. Philly’s Kenneth Cole New York store is located at 1422-1424 Walnut Street.
Can’t attend the event? Don’t worryâ€”you can buy the shirt directly from The Human Rights Campaign.
The Kenneth Cole fundraiser comes on the same weekend as Philly Pride’s PrideDay Parade and Festival June 12-13.
