Pride designs featured in new collection
Clearwater, FL -- (SBWIRE) -- 07/02/2014 -- Gay pride and those who support the social movement believe in taking a positive stance against discrimination and violence toward lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgendered (LGBT) people to help promote their self-affirmation, dignity, and equal rights while celebrating sexual diversity and gender variance. Logolenses is proud to announce the newest collection of custom sunglasses for the gay and straight community. The newest designs include the female and male gender symbols, and designs that represent support for the Gay Pride movement.
Support for homosexual rights really took off in the 1960s with the civil rights movement. The turning point for gay liberation came on June 28, 1969, when patrons of the popular Stonewall Inn in New York's Greenwich Village fought back against ongoing police raids of their neighborhood bar. Stonewall is still considered a watershed moment of gay pride and has been commemorated since the 1970s with "pride marches" held every June across the United States.
Not everyone who supports gay rights are homosexual, for those who want to show their support to friends and family, Logolenses is offering “I Support” and “Pride” designs. Parents and Friends of Lesbians and Gays (PFLAG), formed in 1972, offered family members greater support roles in the gay rights movement. Enormous marches on Washington drew as many as 1 million gay rights supporters in 1987 and again in 1993.
The 21st century has heralded new legal gains for gay and lesbian couples. Same-sex civil unions are recognized by more states than ever before. To celebrate the Pride movement national events include pride parades and marches, rallies, commemorations, community days, dance parties, and large festivals. Logolenses is proud to offer new designs or custom sunglasses to make any of these events special and memorable.
Logolenses also offers side arm imprinted sunglasses available with any Gay Pride symbols or message desired. Common symbols of the pride movement are the rainbow or pride flag, the lowercase Greek letter lambda (?) and the pink triangle.
