6" Pride Teddy Bear
This junior teddy, uniquely patterned after the rainbow LGBTQ+ flag, is totally awesome! Made of a super soft, long-pile velboa and sitting at a height of 6", this imaginative teddy bear is great for cuddling. It comes with a shirt that you can personalize to make all your own and is perfect for kids, adults, boys, girls, and everyone in between — regardless of orientation!
Did you know that the rainbow flag first flew on June 25, 1978? It was designed by gay artist and activist Gilbert Baker (1951-2017) and has since become a universal icon of peace, happiness, and, above all, pride. That original flag now hangs in New York City's Museum of Modern Art.
With every purchase of this Totally Pride teddy bear, 10% of the retail price will be given directly to the Matthew Shepard Foundation. Check out the counter below to see how much we — via you, our customers — have contributed to #ErasingHate! The Matthew Shepard Foundation was founded by Dennis and Judy Shepard in memory of their 21-year-old son, Matthew, who was murdered in an anti-gay hate crime in Laramie, Wyoming, in October 1998. Created to honor Matthew in a manner that was appropriate to his dreams, beliefs, and aspirations, the Foundation seeks to “Replace Hate with Understanding, Compassion, and Acceptance” through its varied educational, outreach, and advocacy programs, and by continuing to tell Matthew’s story.
