DC is doubling down on its 2022 DC Pride anthology - not only will it be on-sale at comic shops, bookstores, and online on June 7, but they are also sending 10,000 complimentary copies to libraries across the US. DC is doing this in partnership with PFLAG National, the US's largest organization supporting LGBTQIA+ people and their allies.

In addition to that, DC is making the DC Pride 2022 anthology a free read for those who are subscribers to its DC Universe Infinite digital comics platform.

DC is also offering four Pride 2022 t-shirts, including a romantic Poison Ivy/Harley Quinn kiss drawn by Jen Bartel, on DC Shop. This is in addition to DC Pride-themed shirts for Harley Quinn, Poison Ivy, Midnighter, Apollo, Batwoman Kate Kane, Dreamer, Renee Montoya, Green Lantern Alan Scott and Kid Quick available now at Hot Topic.

Funko is getting in on the action with rainbow editions of Harley Quinn, Poison Ivy, and Robin that will be available at Walmart and collectible stories as part of their 'Pops! with Purpose' initiative. DC has relayed that Funko has also made an unspecified donation to the It Gets Better Project, an organization that helps support LGBTQIA+ youth.
