Pride OTW Gallery Hoodie
Together As Ourselves. Vans’ mission is to inspire and enable creative expression, and that cannot happen without free expression for everyone. To celebrate Pride 2022, Vans empowered three artists in the LGBTQ+ community to create a collection of footwear and apparel that showcases their experiences, individuality, and vision for a more inclusive world. A digital artist who has moved past the screen into murals, painting, colored pencils, and textiles, Ashley Lukashevsky recognizes that identity—like her art—is constantly evolving. Splitting her time between Los Angeles and Honolulu, Ashley uses illustration and visual art as a tool to strengthen social movements for racial justice, immigrant justice, climate justice, mental health, and LGBTQ+ liberation. Playing with digital prints at the center chest and back, Ashley’s Pride OTW Gallery Pullover Hoodie highlights the joy of feeling seen, heard, and celebrated in one’s found community, for exactly the individual that you are. Constructed with a comfortable fleece blend, this classic pullover hooded sweatshirt lets you show your Pride today, and every day. Model is 6 feet tall and wearing a size Medium. In celebration of Pride, Vans is donating a total of $200,000 from the Checkerboard Fund at Tides Foundation to three organizations committed to advocating for and providing the space, access, and community needed to uplift the voices of the LBGTQ+ community. One of these organizations that we are proud to support is the Tegan and Sara Foundation. With a donation of $100,000, Vans will support camperships for over 20 LGBTQ+ summer camps in the US and Canada. In addition, this donation will support the Trans Youth Community Grants program to distribute needed funds for local, grassroots organizations supporting trans youth.
