We believe that relying on a community network to provide solidarity and strength is the secret to battling
even the most challenging of times. Welcome to #LuckyTogether, a content destination where helpful ideas,
encouragement, and conversations are celebrated and exchanged. We're glad you're here.
We are taking this time to listen, learn, and reflect. We will be sharing more soon.
Lucky Brand Highlights
Brand Partner, Be Free
No one wants to spend their lives pretending to be something they’re not. For years, Be Free founder Brian
Terada did exactly that. Fearing the loss and judgement of friends and family, the young student attending a
Christian University found himself at a crossroads. Down one path (the safe one), he could continue living a
lie… down the other (the brave one), he could speak his truth and set out on a quest to discover who loved
him, and would continue to love him for who he really is.
Brian chose to be brave.
His experience of coming out to his family, friends, and community proved to be more positive than he had
anticipated, and the outpouring of love and acceptance inspired him to help others on their own journey.
And so, a few years later, Be Free was born—starting with a logo and a batch of t-shirts that when worn,
indicates that the wearer is a safe person to come out to.
"Every moment of every day, we all have the power to help
other people in our lives to feel a little bit more free."
- Brian Terada, Founder of Be Free
Not long after, Brian started hosting Be Free Story Nights—events where anyone could come and share their
own story. Ultimately, a Be Free Story is about taking a chance in order to find more freedom for yourself and
your community. For many LGBTQ+ participants, it was about their own coming out story. For others, it was
often about family, mental health, or other life-altering decisions and experiences that so many of us need to
find freedom in—and from.
To celebrate Pride 2020,
Lucky Brand will co-host a
virtual Be Free event. Details
to be announced soon.
Lucky Brand co-designed a limited
edition Be Free T-shirt that will be
available to purchase via Be Free.
All sales will go directly to Be Free
to support their mission.
