Macy's celebrates LGBT pride

NEW YORK — Macy's is celebrating LGBT Pride Month this June with a number of initiatives including in-store events and participation in marches around the country.

“Macy’s is once again proud to recognize and honor our LGBT employees and customers during National Pride Month with our Pride + Joy campaign,” said Dineen Garcia, Macy’s VP diversity strategies. “These festive celebrations and community initiatives showcase our steadfast commitment to inclusiveness in all aspects of our business. From our welcoming wedding and gift registry to our long-standing support of national and local LGBT community organizations, Macy’s remains dedicated to the fundamentals of diversity, inclusion and respect for all.”

Pride + Joy, Macy’s Pride Month celebration campaign, features a multitude of in-store fashion events, merchandise, commemorative advertising and window displays, gift registry booths for couples in key cities, celebrity appearances, as well as sponsorship and employee participation in Pride parades across the country.
