June is ‘Pride’ month

Every June, Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Queer (LGBTQ) Pride Month is celebrated to honour the 1969 Stonewall uprising in NYC.

The Stonewall uprising was a tipping point for the Gay Liberation Movement in the United States. The last Sunday in June was initially celebrated as “Gay Pride Day,” but the actual day was flexible. In major cities across the nation the “day” soon grew to encompass a month-long series of events. Today, celebrations include pride parades, picnics, parties, workshops, symposia and concerts, and LGBTQ Pride Month events attract millions of participants around the world.

Here at Pro-Stretch to celebrate ‘Pride’ month, we have put together a celebration of our ‘Pride’ inspired products, showing the different ways colour can be applied to enhance a product, and the diversity using colour can bring.


Using colour

Using contrasting colours can really make a product pop, and using various coloured trims to enhance a garment, is a cost effective way to update a core seasonal item.

Many of our trims are available in your chosen bespoke colours or to match your seasonal palettes.

We can match Pantone references or match any chosen colour standards.
