"Queer Eye" and Dorel Home will pledge $10,000 from sales of the Queer Eye Home Collection to The Ali Forney Center until the end of June.

"We're proud to be once again partnering with The Ali Forney Center in honor of Pride Month and to be shining a light on its mission of safeguarding LGBTQ+ youth," says Claudia Grundman, vice president, global brand partnerships, Dorel Home. "The last two years have limited access even further to secure housing options for at-risk LGBTQ+ populations, so it's an especially critical time for us to get involved. We continue to be inspired by the work of The AFC and are beyond grateful for their leadership in our community."
