Showbiz icon Cher has been a long-time advocate for the LGBTQIA+ community. In fact, Cher has been a vocal advocate for many good causes ranging from animal rights and climate justice to the US hunger crisis. Her latest endeavour benefits her fashion skills and her philanthropy; Versace announced on Wednesday, June 8 that they have teamed up with Cher to create a Pride Collection with all proceeds going to the charity organisation Gender Spectrum, reports Billboard.

CHER IS THE HERO WE NEED

Gender Spectrum is a charity that works to provide support, education and guidance for the families, educators, medical and mental health providers of gender diverse and LGBTQIA+ children. All proceeds from the Chersace collection will go to Gender Spectrum.

The limited-edition capsule collection ranges from a pair of socks, a cap and a rainbow rhinestone medusa head tee. The entire collection ranges in price from $AUD160 for the socks to $AUD560 for the tee. The fact that purchasing profits go towards supporting LGBTQIA+ youth really softens the blow of those price tags.

Cher spoke of her reasons for the team-up with Versace in a statement. “Donatella and I have been dear friends for a lifetime,” she says. “It just felt right for our very first collaboration to be one about LGBTQIA+ Pride and celebrating a community that means so incredibly much to both of us. We wanted to make a fun collection supporting a good case, and we hope you like it.”

Donatella Versace supported this sentiment, saying, “It has always been a dream to collaborate with Cher, and it’s finally come true. I’m delighted that we can support such a brilliant charity that has such a positive impact, particularly on young people,” reports The Hollywood Reporter.

Followers of Cher’s Twitter account are always thrilled with her blunt, humorous style of posting. She may even be her own best form of advertising.
