Converse has just announced its 2019 Pride Collection and this year is more inclusive than ever.

Buyers now have the option of trans pride flag color combos on both the shoes themselves and the details such as the piping.


Corporate involvement in pride can be a little dicey sometimes, but representation matters. Major brands like Converse are recognizing that trans folks and those who support them are an important customer base.

The shoes feature trans flag medallions and other details.

The shoes can also be completely customized using Coverse's online customization system.

If you're thinking about picking up a pair, they retail for $80 (even the customized ones).

The inclusion of the trans pride flag is indicative of a greater shift in public consciousness.

The trans community is slowly being recognized as an important and distinct, part of the LGBTQ+ community.


They have also included children's sizes in this year's Pride collection, so LGBTQ+ little ones can also celebrate pride in style.

The desire for the shoes on Twitter was palpable.









If Chuck Taylors are your thing, and you want to show your pride or support for trans folks, these may be the shoes for you.

Love or money?

An age old question.

Ideally, you wouldn't have to decide between the two.

In a perfect world, you would be able to find the true love of your life and be incredibly wealthy all at once.

But, as the saying goes, you can't have everything.

Though if faced with having to choose between the two, people might have a different idea of what the obvious answer would be.

Redditor lulinghayaw was curious how people would decide when faced with this decision, leading them to ask:

It's highly believed that it is important to learn history as a means to improve our future.

What is often overlooked is that what is taught in history class is going to be very different depending on where you went to school.

And this isn't just internationally, even different regions of the United states will likely have very different lessons on American history.

This frequently results in our learning fascinating, heartbreaking and horrifying historical facts which our middle or high school history teachers neglected to teach us.

Redditor Acherontia_atropos91 was curious to learn things people either wished they had learned, or believe they should have learned, in their school history class, leading them to ask:

So apparently we are in the endemic phase of this nonsense.

We have light at the end of the tunnel.

So what now?

Where do we go from here?

Normal seems like an outdated word.

How do we get back to normal though?

Is it even possible?

What are reaching back to?

Life pre-Covid.

Those were the days.

If only we could bring them back.

Redditor hetravelingsong wanted to discuss our new normal in this hopeful "endemic" phase. So they asked:

"What’s something random you miss about pre-COVID times?"
