“It was definitely something that was more edgy than normal campaigns that I do,” Freedia said in an interview. “It was a new adventure for me and felt fun and creative.”
MeUndies has announced that every pair sold will include a $1 donation to the Los Angeles LGBT Center to help expand its youth center.
“Our team is bursting with people who consider themselves part of the community, so we all felt compelled to get involved,” MeUndies creative director Andrew Teague said in an interview. “That doesn’t happen by sitting in your office thinking you can just tell people how to feel and what to buy. It happens when you engage with the world.”
“We never saw this as a chance to tick the gay box,” Teague said. “We’re certainly not walking away, patting ourselves on the back after Pride Month — we are already talking with the center about some more long-term ways in which we can support them.”
