Skybound Celebrates Pride Month With Line Of Variant Covers By LGBTQI+ Artists

by Olly MacNamee

Next month is Pride Month and to celebrate Skybound Entertainment will release a line of nine variant covers featuring art by LGBTQI+ creators.

As well as highlighting LGBTQI+ artists, all proceeds  from the sales of these variant covers  will be donated to the Transgender Law Center, “the largest national trans-led organization advocating for a world in which all people are free to define themselves and their futures.” Furthermore, Skybound promises to continue these charity initiatives throughout the year along with additional actions in support of underrepresented and vulnerable communities.

“The trans community has seen an unprecedented attack on their rights in recent years, and Skybound has decided to launch this program to raise money to support this important fight for equality. We support the Transgender Law Center’s mission to ensure all transgender and gender nonconforming people can live safely, authentically, and free from discrimination regardless of their gender identity or expression.” – Sean Mackiewicz,  SVP/Editor-in-Chief,  Skybound  Entertainment.
