Pride Icons, the world’s largest LGBTQ+ NFT collection and exclusive social club, today launches its inaugural collection and will mint in honor of Pride Month on June 1. The company will also become the first NFT community to offer credit card payment at auction by partnering with Paper, the world’s first payment processing company to allow credit card-based, wallet-based, and cross–chain purchases of NFTs.
The inaugural mint includes 100 “Icons”; artistic interpretations of famous LGBTQ+ celebrities, leaders and advocates. Pride Icons worked closely with talent such as Luke Evans, Perez Hilton, CT Hedden, and others to design original artistic interpretations of each individual.
Upon launch, Pride Icons pledges to donate $1 Million in proceeds to queer and trans organizations such as GLAAD, The Trevor Project, GLSEN and HMI, among others. Each of the notables involved selected the organization they would like the proceeds of their NFT to go to.
Pride Icons is the first ever art collection of its scale made by an LGBTQ+ artist, for the LGBTQ+ community. It was co-founded by serial entrepreneur and Forbes 30 under 30 alum Regev Gur, Google engineering alum, Amir Lazarovich, and LGBTQ+ advocate Eliad Cohen, and designed by digital artist Max Bahman.
