Whilst we celebrate how far LGBTQIA+ rights have come in Australia, we reflect on how much work there is left to be done especially in countries in the Middle East where people have restrictive civil rights and are vulnerable to punishment, imprisonment, violence, discrimination, isolation, hostility and abandonment.
In light of this, we asked our in-house Brazilian-born artist, Murilo Manzini to create an artwork called Pride Together. Proceeds of this collection goes to Helem, the first LGBTQIA+ rights organisation in the Middle East. Established in Beirut, Lebanon in 2001, its mission is to represent, protect and lead the liberation of Lesbians, Gays, Bisexuals, Intersex, Transgendered, Queer (LGBTQIA+) and other people with non-conforming sexualities and/or gender identities in the Middle East and the SWANA region.
Murilo's PRIDE painting is featured on our cotton carry-all clutch purse, complete with coloured back and wrist sized handle. Perfect for storing your charging cords, pencils and paints or to take out as a clutch for your next event.
Thick cotton blend clutch bag with solid coloured back and zip.
