Vanity Fair
By Vanity Fair Studios
To celebrate the June 17 streaming release of season 4 of the trailblazing Netflix series and Pride Month, Vanity Fair’s homepage logo will be orange from June 16 through 18. “Orange Is the New Black” has not only supplied quality entertainment and thrilling plot twists about the ladies of Litchfield, it has also illuminated social issues and raised awareness of the trials faced by the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and questioning (LGBTQ) community both within and without prison walls.

If you want to learn more about these issues and support the LGBTQ community, here are some philanthropies you should know about.
