As we reflect on the end of Pride month, it’s clear that Derek Warburton is an example of how far we have come with supporting the LGBTQ+ community. Mercilessly teased for his sexuality and as a cheerleader in high school, Derek is now cheered for who he is.
This support was evident by the overwhelming success of the launch of his new makeup collection Derek Fabulous for FACE Stockholm. It became an instant Hollywood hit! Celebrities, tastemakers, and even royalty are raving about the Derek Fabulous Pride Collection.
Understanding the difficulties that LGBTQ+ youth face, Derek decided to donate all proceeds from the collection to GLSEN, an organization started by educators to provide needed support to LGBTQ+ students in schools across America, something we need now more than ever!
For the final night of Pride Month, one of Hollywood’s most beloved allies Sutton Stracke from the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, hosted a Pride party at her exclusive boutique in the heart of West Hollywood. Her bevy of supporters joined the celebration with a rainbow of balloons and cocktails on the patio.
