CARE WITH PRIDE® and Family Equality: 10 years of partnership supporting the LGBTQIA+ community

Kenvue Pride Month

Since 2011, CARE WITH PRIDE® has fiercely championed full equality, inclusivity, care and representation for the LGBTQIA+ community. Now 13 years later marks the beginning of a new decade for the organization as we celebrate its 10th anniversary in partnership with Family Equality and one of Kenvue’s longest-standing partnerships.

Founded in 1979 at the National March on Washington for Lesbian and Gay Rights, Family Equality has spent more than 40 years ensuring that everyone has the freedom to find, form, and sustain their families by advancing equality for the LGBTQIA+ community. Throughout the last decade and beyond, their important work as the leading voice advocating for LGBTQIA+ families made the organization a perfect fit as our central strategic partner.

Building on last year’s success, CARE WITH PRIDE® is proud to continue its support for Family Equality with another in-person Family Week event this summer in Provincetown, MA. For years, Family Week has brought together nearly 2,000 individuals, including close to 600 families —the largest annual gathering of LGBTQ+ families worldwide. With each year comes a dedication to creating enhanced experiences including the free Family Night event where every family comes together to enjoy backyard games, dancing to a live DJ and activities. Kenvue also shows up for Family Equality throughout the year at fundraising events such as Night at the Pier, which shines a spotlight on and celebrates the stories of LGBTQIA+ families, advocates and allies during these crucial times, and LA Impact later this fall.

Outright International

In addition to our work with Family Equality, in 2023, Kenvue established a new partnership with Outright International, aligning with its mission to extend support globally and secure a world where LGBTQIA+ individuals can live freely, openly love, and achieve their full potential, free from violence and with dignity. This collaboration reflects our shared dedication to fostering a more inclusive and supportive global community.

Outright International was founded in 1990 by activist Julie Dorf, with considerable involvement from other activists, including notable Russian author, journalist and activist Masha Gessen. And throughout the years, their global programs have strengthened the capacity of the LGBTQIA+ human rights movement, including the Celebration of Courage Awards and Gala, which recognizes the achievements and voices of activists and allies driving progress worldwide.

The organization was built on four key principles: to amplify, support, advocate and celebrate, while understanding and acknowledging that pride has several objectives. According to Outright International’s Pride Around the World report, “pride serves to make LGBTQIA+ communities visible, to protest and demand action ... and to provide a space for celebration to reaffirm the identities of [LGBTQIA+] people.”
