• About: Common Culture + Urban Outfitters

    In 2010, Connor Franta changed the Internet. The 24-year-old vlogger and activist started posting weekly videos for his burgeoning fanbase, touching on the subjects that mattered most as a young person. His videos about his experience coming out, moving out on his own (complete with a firsthand tour of his new apartment), even a video for his future children all have garnered well over millions of views in the past six years, and that's just a short list of his material.

    Today, Connor has another story to tell — and it's one we're really excited to share alongside him. We've teamed up with Connor and his lifestyle brand to present Common Culture + Urban Outfitters, five unique items including a tee, sweatshirt, pullover hoodie and two baseball hats, all for sale online and in select stores starting Giving Tuesday (November 29). The product will be released in eight UO locations total, going to Seattle, Chicago, Orlando, Los Angeles and Cincinnati on 11/29, Austin on 12/2, NYC on 12/7 and Mall of America 12/9.

    On Giving Tuesday, Connor will kick off a mini tour with UO at Space 15 Twenty in Los Angeles, where 200 lucky fans who purchased the gear at the store that day will get to meet Connor and pick up a signed copy of a CD compilation from his record label, Heard Well. The tour will also stop in Austin, TX at Space 24 Twenty on December 2, New York City at Herald Square on December 7 and Mall of America on December 9.

    Even more exciting: all proceeds will be donated to GLSEN, a non-profit that's working to affect positive change for LGBTQ children in schools. 

    Watch Connor's announce below to learn more about his work with UO, the products he's designed for the project, and how he chose the perfect non-profit to team up with. Read our interview with GLSEN to learn more about the organization and why everything it stands for is so, so important to support.
