June’s arrival not only signals the approaching summer season, but marks an important time to support, honor, and celebrate the LGBTQIA+ community. There are plenty of ways to be an ally — by lending a supportive ear to an LGBTQIA+ friend, donating to a nonprofit, and examining your ideas about gender and sexuality to decide what needs changing — but there aren’t a *ton* of ways to experience a truly inclusive shopping experience online. Afterpay wants that to change.
This June, the buy now, pay later shopping platform, Afterpay, is paving the way for a more diverse and inclusive online shopping experience with its new GenderFree digital shop: A gender-inclusive, filter-free hub comprised of must-have products from Afterpay's wide range of merchants. Whether you’re looking to support one of these brands or simply shop on your own terms, Afterpay’s GenderFree hub is the place to start.
And although its launch is timed with Pride month, Afterpay is committed to gender inclusivity long-term. The brand recently partnered up with two new advisors: The non-conforming writer, artist, and spokesperson, Alok V Menon, and the organization Reimagine Gender, which helps people understand and address gender so their organizations, constituents, communities, and families can thrive. Together, Alok, Reimagine Gender, and Afterpay will continue to create a more gender-inclusive shopping experience online.
