Celebrate Pride around the USA with ManiMe
From New York to Los Angeles and everywhere in between, ManiMe wants to have your nails Pride party ready with ManiMe’s gel manis from the limited-edition Pride Capsule, co-designed by Jonathan Van Ness (@JVN) and Mei Kawajiri (@NailsbyMei).
As reported by Them Magazine’s Matt Baume, modern Pride liberation and celebrations can be traced back to the 1960s and 1970s. It was during this era that hundreds of Pride events started to be organized including the historic Stonewall Riots, which occurred in New York City in June 1969.
Now 50+ years later, we see Pride celebrated throughout the month of June with parades, festivals, parties, proms, protests and so much more. While we love celebrating Pride, we want to highlight that Pride is and will always be a political statement to stand up for LGBTQIA+ rights and against unjust and discriminatory systems.
As we all get ready to celebrate this year, ManiMe wants to help with its limited-edition Pride Capsule manis, which are co-designed by LGBTQIA+ advocates Jonathan Van Ness (@JVN) and Mei Kawajiri (@NailsbyMei) with the intention to allow anyone to express their true identity.
