Paris Hilton announced the release of new merchandise that will fundraise for an LGBTQ charity.
The 39-year-old revealed across her social media accounts that proceeds from sales of her new Boss Babe tank top, available in pink, black or white, will directly support the LGBTQ Freedom Fund.
“Rocking my new #BossBabe Summer #ParisHiltonMerch Collection.The proceeds from my “Boss Babe” tank go directly to the @LGBTQ_Freedom,” Paris wrote on Twitter and Instagram, alongside a black-and-white edited image of wearing her merchandise next to Marilyn Monroe. “Go to ParisHiltonMerch.com to shop now.”
And in the item’s description on her website, Paris details more of the organisation’s work, and why she was inspired to help them amid the ongoing protest around the world to improve racial equality.
“The LGBTQ Freedom Fund is a black-led organization focusing on posting bail to secure the safety of LGBTQ folks, who are 3 times more likely to be incarcerated than straight individuals,” the description on her website read.
“Because of whom they love, a tangle of discrimination and poverty disproportionately puts LGBTQ people behind bars and the impact is felt most acutely by transgender, brown & black individuals.”
The LGBTQ Freedom Fund is also supporting Black Lives Matter protesters with bail money in Florida.
Paris’ Boss Babe tank top is available from her website parishiltonmerch.com, and priced at $25 (£20).
