City Girls rapper Yung Miami is making a bold statement in support of the LGBTQ+ community with her latest merchandise release titled "The Gays". Scheduled to drop on Friday, May 17th, just in time for Pride Month, the collection will feature a range of apparel and accessories celebrating LGBTQ+ pride.


A portion of the proceeds from "The Gays" merchandise sales will be donated to GLAAD, one of the most prominent organizations advocating for LGBTQ+ rights and representation in media. The donation will support LGBTQ+ programming.

Yung Miami's decision to create this merchandise comes amidst previous backlash she faced from the LGBTQ+ community for homophobic comments made in the past. However, this move seems to reflect a genuine effort on her part to take actionable steps in righting her wrongs and being a better ally to the LGBTQ+ community.


Just recently, Yung Miami attended the GLAAD Honors, a community gathering and celebration recognizing Black LGBTQ+ nominees of the GLAAD Media Awards for their contributions, efforts, and visibility within the LGBTQ+ community. Her presence at the event signals the beginning of her commitment to being an advocate for LGBTQ+ rights.


This move by Yung Miami highlights the importance of using one's platform to promote inclusivity and acceptance, and it serves as a reminder that positive change is possible when individuals are willing to listen, learn, and take action.


The "The Gays" merchandise will be available for purchase on careshaplease.com
