Barbie took a stand for LGBT rights in an Instagram post featuring the doll wearing a “Love Wins” shirt.
The post was part of celebrating Los Angeles-based fashion blogger Aimee Song who just got her own Barbie doll. Song has designed a line of “Love Wins” T-shirts with half of the proceeds benefitting the Trevor Project. The shirts are sold on Song’s website for $68. Barbie Style, an Instagram that features Barbie and her friends showing off looks, posted Barbie and the doll Song wearing the shirts.
“Proud to wear this “Love Wins” shirt with @songofstyle! Did you know that her exclusive t-shirts benefit different causes and non-profits? Such an inspiring initiative and fabulous few days I have spent with Aimee, she’s a doll! #barbie #barbiestyle,” the photo is captioned.
The internet was thrilled and immediately began welcoming Barbie to the LGBT community. So far, the post has received more than 35,000 likes.
