To kick off LGBT Pride Month this June, corporations are stepping in and celebrating pride with their fans.

AT&T has been celebrating Pride Month for the past four years. This time around, they are launching a Live Proud campaign, where members of the LGBT community and their allies are encouraged to help spread awareness and pride through a sweepstakes.

In this sweepstakes, which runs from June 1 to Aug 14, participants will visit http://att.com/liveproud and take a quiz to determine what color represents them during Pride Month.

Once their color is chosen, participants will be added to a user-generated art piece, according to their website.

Once entered in the sweepstakes, participants will have a chance to win a trip for two to Palm Springs, CA for three days between Nov 4 and 7.

AT&T isn't the only corporation celebrating pride this month. Joining it is Macy's with their Pride + Joy campsign, which features participation in over 20 Pride parades, in-store events and more.

Macy's will continue to partner with The Trevor Project, which is an organization "crisis-intervention and suicide-prevention services to lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and questioning (LGBTQ) young people ages 13 to 24," according to a press release.

The company will continue to provide financial support to The Trevor Project, and will sponsor the Los Angeles and New York City galas, known as TrevorLIVE.

“Macy’s is proud to continue our support for the LGBTQ community through our annual Pride + Joy campaign,” William Hawthorne, Macy’s senior vice president of Diversity Strategies and Inclusion, said in a press release. “Whether it’s through events, our practices or via partnerships with LGBTQ organizations like the Trevor Project and the Human Rights Campaign, among other organizations; we are steadfast in our commitment to being an inclusive company as we support our employees, customers and the communities in which we do business.”
