If you haven’t heard, we launched a limited-edition Pride Lipstick Collection Limited Collection! From now until September 21st, £1 from every lipstick sold on our website will be donated to Switchboard, an LGBTQ+ helpline. We really believe in Switchboard’s mission and fully support everything they do for the LGBTQ+ community.
So, what exactly does Switchboard do?
Switchboard is an LGBTQ+ helpline that’s based in the United Kingdom. The organisation got its start in the 1970s when many were looking for information after the partial decriminalisation of male homosexuality. Heading into the 1980s, they then developed into the leading source of information about the HIV/AIDs crisis. Now, from 10am – 10pm every day, Switchboard provides a safe space for anyone to discuss anything they want – from gender and sexuality to emotional and sexual health. Every call is confidential, plus every volunteer is part of the LGBTQ+ community. They strive to provide information and empowerment to all LGBTQ+ people and hope to end every call with a solution that fits the caller’s individual situation.
We hope you enjoy our Pride Collection as much as we have enjoyed creating it!
