Just Like Us is delighted to announce a new hair-raising partnership with got2b, a Schwarzkopf brand, which is supporting us to eliminate homophobic, biphobic and transphobic bullying across the UK.
got2b have given their best-selling hairspray can - the Glued Blasting Freeze Spray - a fabulous redesign for Pride season 2020. The limited edition design was created by Ruby Taylor, one of the most sought-after illustrators of the moment. Ruby’s bright and quirky sketches have transformed the iconic canary yellow can into a celebration of LGBT+ identities, with motivational expressions, rainbows and LGBT+ flags scattered across the can.
“The Glued Blasting Freeze spray is such an iconic product and it’s a real honour to be chosen to produce the Pride limited edition. As a member of the LGBT+ community I know how important the work is that Just like Us do and I’m so pleased the can supports this great charity. I hope my design reflects the fun, positive and inclusive feeling of Pride celebrations.” - Ruby Taylor, designer.
Schwarzkopf got2b’s initial donation of £10,000 to Just Like Us can help us to recruit, train and support a minimum of 25 LGBT+ volunteers aged 18-25, over a 12-month period, to deliver talks and workshops, sharing their unique stories, and promoting LGBT+ equality and inclusion in schools and colleges across the UK, reaching thousands of young people. It's a natural partnership between got2b and Just Like Us, as we both believe the world is a better place when people can express their own unique individuality.
Dominic Arnall, Chief Executive of Just Like Us said:
‘This is a wonderful partnership with got2b that will help Just Like Us ensure that LGBT+ young people the length of the country know they are not alone and that it is possible to have a bright and fulfilling future, open and confident in your identity. It will also create a generation of allies, who will be more inclusive and supportive of their LGBT+ peers.’
