NYX Professional Makeup Celebrates “Family Can’t Be Framed” Campaign at LA Pride

World-renowned beauty brand continues to advocate for LGBTQIA+ community by highlighting chosen families 

LOS ANGELES, June 6, 2024 /PRNewswire/ — NYX Professional Makeup today announced the launch of the “Family Can’t Be Framed” Pride campaign. Based on an insight from a GLAD study, which found that nearly 40% of queer adults have faced rejection from birth families, the brand chose to highlight groups of LGBTQIA+ individuals who have banded together to form chosen families. 

This year’s Pride campaign welcomes three chosen families including:

  • Members of the House of Avalon collective, which is a group of drag queens, stylists, and creatives, including ‘RuPaul’s’ Drag Race’ winner Symone and finalist Gigi Goode, celebrity stylist Marko Monroe, co-founder Hunter Crenshaw, makeup artist Riley Holden, drag queen Grant Vanderbilt, and social media personality Caleb Feeney
  • Professional football cheerleaders Napoleon Jinnies, Jose Capetillo, and Eswinn Diaz
  • LA LGBT Center members; Jack Alghannam, Mark Chavez, Heather Torres, Roblez, Daniella David and Rhanyon Orosco

“To us, family isn’t always defined as the people who are related to you,” said Marko Monroe, House of Avalon member. “Family is, most importantly, the people in your life who are honest, unconditionally loving, and will be there for you no matter what.”

NYX Professional Makeup will celebrate this year’s campaign by taking part in LA Pride in the Park with an interactive, immersive brand experience; a colorful, vibrant house party celebrating the LGBTQIA+ community and culture will be open to consumers on June 8th from 1-8PM featuring family portrait opportunities, dancing, colorful confetti celebrations, and product giveaways. The brand will also participate in the massive LA Pride parade on June 9th.

A longtime partner of the LA LGBT Center, NYX Professional Makeup continues to provide educational resources for consumers with their ‘Proud Allies for All’ program, a year-round initiative to celebrate love, support, and equality by cultivating global alliances with LGBTQIA+. NYX Professional Makeup’s ally education quiz has been a key tool in providing education to audiences, and can be accessed at https://www.nyxcosmetics.com/pride-quiz.html.

NYX Professional Makeup is a proud supporter and ally of LGBTQIA+ initiatives, donating more than $750,000 in contributions to global charities over the years including to the LA LGBT Center.

“We are proud to highlight chosen families in celebration of our ‘Family Can’t Be Framed’ Pride campaign this year, and continue our always-on brand commitment behind Proud Allies for All,” said Andrea Muguerza, VP of Marketing at NYX Professional Makeup. “We want to emphasize the importance of inclusion and acceptance of the LGBTQIA+ community, and their chosen families as an essential support system.”
