Designers at MOGA, an online Muslim fashion label based in Australia, recently released an LGBT headscarf in solidarity with marriage equality in Australia.
“During one of the most critical and important times in our nation’s history, we at MOGA are proud to voice our support for marriage equality in Australia,” the company said in a statement. “Our love and adoration towards the LGBTIQ community is strong and we have designed a limited edition rainbow striped Pride scarf in honor of their strength, bravery and inclusive spirit.”
PROUD to show our support for marriage equality in Australia. Remember kids, LOVE is LOVE.

According to founder Azahn Munas, the “Pride scarf can be worn by anyone, regardless of their skin color, religious beliefs or sexual orientation.”
This isn’t MOGA’s first attempt into activism. Earlier this year, they released a “More than Meat” collection which included a headscarf made entirely of actual raw meat to explain that women were “not just a piece of meat.” The label also released an Australia Day collection to celebrate diversity and acceptance, and Munas sent a headscarf to islamaphobe politician Pauline Hanson.
Also MOGA is a social enterprise at its core, as 20% of its profits go to CARE Pakistan to help young girls get an education. With scarves made with 100% silk or Crepe de China, designed and made in house, their bright and vivid collections are sold on a limited edition basis.
