June is underway, and Pride Month is here—a time to come together with heart and solidarity, standing up for inclusion everywhere. While Pride Month will look different this year for a lot of reasons, we know our guests and team members are still looking for ways to honor the month. And Target is committed to helping them #TakePride together, a reflection of our longstanding support of the LGBTQ+ community.

One point of pride for Target: our amazing team. Target's Pride+ Business Council, our HQ-based team member resource group, has planned an internal program that helps team members come together virtually to honor the month. That includes online panels, team member testimonials, videos and more—all designed to create safe, welcoming environments for all.

Our merchandising teams develop an inclusive Pride collection for guests each year in partnership with the Pride+ Business Council. This year, that collection features more than 90 products online and in nearly 500 stores across the country, with apparel in extended sizesaccessoriesswimwear and more. And as Pride celebrations around the country extend later into the year, we're keeping a portion of the collection available online for guests through the fall. 

For decades, Target has supported local, regional and national LGBTQ+ organizations financially and through volunteerism. This year, in honor of Pride Month, we're proud to donate $100,000 to GLSEN to help their mission of creating inclusion and safety for all. Target's support of the LGBTQ+ community is just one example of our commitment to inclusion. Find more about Target’s mission to help create a more inclusive society here.
