Just in time for Pride month, retailer American Apparel has launched a line of "Make America Gay Again" items aimed mocking presumptive GOP nominee Donald Trump. The line includes several shirts, a tote bag, and a red hat similar to the ubiquitous "Make America Great Again" hats sported by Trump fans.

A percentage of the sales of the items will go towards the Equality Act. The Human Rights Campaign and The Ally Project teamed up with American Apparel to produce the collection.

Unlike similarly themed pride collections, this limited-edition line is directly benefiting the LGTBQ community with 30 percent of the proceeds going toward the Equality Act and the fight to end LGBTQ discrimination.

The collection is a partnership between American Apparel, the Human Rights Campaign and the Ally Coalition. The Ally Coalition was co-founded by singer-songwriter Jack Antonoff along with his sister, Rachel. "Rachel and I founded the Ally Coalition to inspire fans to take action for LGBTQ Equality," Antonoff said in a press statement. "During a year where LGBTQ rights are being threatened all over the states, everyone is responsible for coming together and challenging these injustices."

This is a limited-edition line and items can be purchased both online and in stores.
