The first openly gay man to be elected to public office in California wasn't always a politician: in fact, before Harvey Milk won a seat on the San Francisco Board of Supervisors, he owned and operated a camera shop, located at 575 Castro Street in the heart of the city's gay neighborhood. This model celebrates the life of Harvey Milk and honors all LGBT Americans who carry on the struggle for dignity and equality.
Although in its first iteration this model featured a beaded rainbow pattern, we’ve updated the design with a monochrome swatch of black beads, stitched into the frames and which runs down the length of each stem. A less literal and, dare we say, less tacky interpretation of Harvey Milk’s work as an LGBT advocate, the new black beading is a fresh, understated, wear-with-anything celebration of the LGBT movement. After all, black goes with everything, and so should your pride.
For every pair of sunglasses sold, we donate $10 to gay rights organizations working to ensure K-12 schools are a safe and supportive environment for all students, regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity/expression.
