M·A·C Cosmetics shows off their Pride&Joy

Though most public parades are still halted this year, that doesn’t mean the celebration has to stop. “To me, Pride is every day,” says Pride #MACCrew member Charlie Ford Nishimura. “Walking down the street as a visibly queer person and owning who I am proudly is an act of defiance against the norm.”

Through their longstanding partnerships with LGBTQIA+ organizations and over $500,000,000 raised through their VIVA GLAM program, M·A·C is committed to continuing the celebration – and amplifying each voice in the community – all year long.

M·A·C understands that Pride is a celebration and a protest. It's incorporated in the spirit of the revelers who identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, asexual, pansexual and intersex who celebrate despite the barriers that society – and social distance – presents.

Through this year’s Pride crew, M·A·C Cosmetics is shining a spotlight on six voices with one message – sharing what this time of year means to them, how they celebrate their identities and what allyship should look like.

To continue the celebration – and celebrate with an emphasis on authenticity – their Artists are ready to help you find the perfect Pride look with the help of colourful products to show off your Pride – from the softest shades to the punchiest pigments. “Makeup creates an avenue for me to have fun with my visual artistry,” says Pride #MACCrew member Christian Mooney. “It’s makeup with a message. It’s a weapon for me to create new possibilities of the way individuals interact with my beauty.”

Pride is still alive – in all forms and for people of all identities.
