AKT are pleased to partner with eBay for Charity again this year to celebrate Pride and raise vital funds to support our work in ending LGBT youth homelessness.

Be sure to visit the eBay Pride Hub at www.ebay.co.uk/rpp/pride to shop for a variety of Pride merchandise which AKT will receive a portion of each sale. And, from Monday 25 June, there will be exclusive t-shirts and hoodies by Henry Holland and group of AKT young people as well as limited edition Pride badges from Pintrill. AKT will receive 100% of each sale of these exclusive items.

“I feel passionate about the AKT and their amazing work and the team that make it all happen. I have worked with some of the young people who have benefited from their amazing support on this design and it really was a collaboration between us all. I hope everyone loves wearing it and promoting the message 

behind it as much as we enjoyed designing it.” -Henry Holland

From 4 July, the Pride Hub will host an exclusive auction from the #prouder campaign, a collaboration with DJ Fat Tony and adidas, where bidders from around the world will be able to bid on trainers customised by leading LGBT icons and celebrities like: Elton John and David Furnish, David Beckham, the Pet Shop Boys, Kate Moss, New Order, Paloma Faith, Pet Shop Boys, Pharrell Williams, Philip Treacy, Rita Ora.  Visit www.ebay.co.uk/rpp/pride to pre-register as a bidder.  

The customised adidas Sambas will also be on display at an exhibition at the HENI Gallery in Soho for London Pride Week from July 4th to 10th. The exhibition will feature each of the trainers alongside projections from the contributors explaining their involvement and individual concepts of being ‘Prouder’. The films have been produced by Nick Knight's SHOWStudios.  Entrance to the exhibition is free.

Tim Sigsworth MBE, CEO The Albert Kennedy Trust says: “The Albert Kennedy Trust is excited to be supported by eBay for Charity again this year.

As the national LGBTQ+ youth homelessness charity, we are always looking to raise vital funds and awareness in new ways to support our work to provide safe homes and support to LGBT people aged 16-25.

Through eBay’s Pride Hub and the exclusive #prouder auction, everyone can show their support through a range of exclusive merchandise and one of a kind items so that that no young person has to choose between a safe home and being who they are.”
