It’s officially our favorite time of the year: Pride 2022 is here!
With a limited-edition capsule — of which all net proceeds benefit the Human Rights Campaign — and month-long community events happening IRL and URL, we couldn’t help but get the party started a few days early.
Pride is a moment that Alo holds very close to our hearts. Not only is it a true celebration of the vibrant community that make up the Alo Fam, but our passion for mindful movement goes hand-in-hand with the authenticity that Pride Month celebrates year after year.
Since the first time we stepped onto our mats, movement has been a place of refuge — a sacred space to close our eyes, breathe deep into the moment, and express gratitude for the mind, body, and soul that showed up (in whatever form) that day.
With each Savasana and Downward Dog, we dive deeper into an intimate connection with ourselves. We discover confidence, we uncover joy, and we fall in love with the self that placed two feet on the mat.
Regardless of gender, sexuality, or identity, movement encourages the practitioner to bend, stretch, and breathe with pride and with love. This Pride 2022, Alo celebrates the pure self-expression that movement allows and invites you to practice with us all month long and beyond.
The queer community has been expressing pride through movement for forever. Pride started off with finding that queer safe space. All of that revolved around dance and movement. - Clint Morris
Envision those few pieces of clothing your friends deem as “so you.” The style and the color combine into the perfect apparel-based form of self-expression and slipping into the newly washed staples is like a double shot of confidence. In short, it’s like wearing your heart on your sleeve.
That is Alo’s Pride 2022 Capsule — limited-edition essentials designed for lounging in, living in, and loving in. From the best-selling Accolade Hoodie & Sweat Short to award-winning undies to the Throwback Socks you can’t pass a single block in NYC without seeing, Alo redesigned a few of our bests with Pride at the forefront.
This year, we’re honored to partner with the Human Rights Campaign, the nation’s largest LGBTQ+ civil rights organization. This long-standing organization envisions a world where lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer people, plus community members who use different language to describe their identity, are ensured equality and embraced as full members of society at home, at work and in every community. And with that, we couldn’t think of anywhere better to send all net proceeds from this capsule.
While Alo stands firm on mindful movement serving as a means to a self-loving end, we also think that expressing who you are on the inside on the outside is just as important.

Queer communities have shaped the world of movement in a ton of different ways – look back at ball culture in New York City and vogueing – this expression of self, outside the norms of society. - Austin Ricks
