Calvin Klein has partnered with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander LGBTQIA+ charity BlaQ. 

The partnership will see Calvin Klein donate a minimum of $100,000 to the organisation over three years.

The deal builds on the brand's existing support of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities, which saw it raise money for remote communities in 2020 through its partnership with Save The Children.  

BlaQ works to support Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander gay, lesbian, bisexual, trans, sistergirls, brotherboys, queer and non-binary themstars, to ensure they are valued and safe in all aspects of society. 

BlaQ's work involves fostering pathways that provide informed and authentic representation that positively impacts the social and emotional wellbeing of the Indigenous LGBTQIA+ communities.

Alongside the $100,000, Calvin Klein will also donate 30 cents from the sale of every Pride product from its 2021 Pride collection to the organisation. 

"With a history that has supported the LGBTQIA+ community, Calvin Klein has long been inspired by the movement, releasing gender neutral fragrances since 1994, dedicated Pride collections since 2018 and starting important conversations globally using the hashtag #proudinmycalvins," the business said in a statement. 

Calvin Klein's 2021 Pride Collection is available now and retails for between $19.95 to $139.
