Glasses Direct and Galop come together for a visionary campaign over Pride month

We’re so excited that Glasses Direct, the UK’s most-trusted online prescription glasses retailer, have partnered with Galop during Pride month.  


Together, Glasses Direct and Galop will be raising awareness of the abuse and violence LGBT+ people experience, as well as raising vital funds for Galop’s services that help LGBT+ people who have experienced any kind of abuse or violence, such as domestic abuse, sexual violence, hate crime or so-called ‘conversion therapy’.  


Throughout this month, Glasses Direct has a special, limited edition rainbow glasses frame available for purchase. 100% of the profits from these frames will be going to Galop to help us support LGBT+ victims and survivors of abuse and violence. 


Leni Morris, Galop’s CEO, said: “We are truly delighted for the opportunity to partner with Glasses Direct this Pride month. Pride should be a time of celebration; yet, when our community is more visible, we are often subject to higher levels of discrimination, abuse and violence.  


At Galop, we believe that every LGBT+ person has the right to live authentically and freely as who they are. Glasses Direct is helping to make this vision a reality. Through this partnership, we will be able to reach and support more LGBT+ who are facing abuse and violence. Thank you so much to Glasses Direct for their kind support of Galop and our community.” 


Clara Bauéb, PR & Social Media Manager at Glasses Direct, said: “At Glasses Direct, we wear our support proudly. We are thrilled to join hands with Galop this year, championing the rights and safety of LGBTQ+ individuals affected by abuse. With our Pride Collection, every frame sold becomes an opportunity to make a difference. For every purchase, we pledge to donate £2 to Galop, helping them bring hope, healing, and strength to those who need it most. Together, we can create a brighter, more inclusive future for all.”
