Footwear label Teva is set to make a donation to Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander non-profit organisation Black Rainbow, as part of its Pride celebrations.
Teva will donate $5000 to Black Rainbow, to create a new 'Outdoor Fund', which will directly invest into three Indigenous LGBTIQA+Sistergirls and Brotherboys (+SB) who are engaged in an outdoor-related field.
Open to First Nations LGBTIQA+SB individuals excelling in sport along with outdoor teachers or those involved in environmental regeneration, the Outdoor Fund will be open in early June 2022 to eligible applicants.
Black Rainbow founder Dameyon Bonson welcomed the new partnership with Teva.
"We are really excited to be working with Teva and tapping into an area of adventure and activity we feel opens up opportunity for members of our community.
"We hope that through this partnership it encourages Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander mob of the rainbow community to embrace their adventurous spirit and get on out there and enjoy the great outdoors across our many nations," he said.
To celebrate Pride and its new partnership with Black Rainbow, Teva has launched a capsule collection of three sandal styles.
The collection features the classic Teva sandal, along with a midform and flatform style.
Colourways of black and white are brightened up with a rainbow strap or flatform.
Fronting Teva's Pride campaign locally is proud queer Mbabaram and Gureng man, actor and model, Nathaniel Blackman (pictured).
The Teva Pride sandals are available now online and in specialty retailers.
The range is priced from $99.95 to $109.95.
