There are numerous charities and organizations fighting for the rights of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender humans across the world. And they're always in need of some extra support from LGBTQ+ friendly companies in mainstream media. That's why many very popular and widely used brands are creating specialty products or viral content to show their support for the LGBTQ+ community.
