Victoria Beckham is joining forces with her Spice Girls band mates to launch a new charity T-shirt during Pride Month.
The singer took to Instagram to announce the exciting news, sharing snaps of her, Geri Horner, Emma Bunton, Mel B and Mel C all wearing the shirts, which have the words “Proud and Wannabe your Lover” written on them in rainbow text. The text references the band’s hit 1996 track.
Beckham launched the project to raise money for the LGBTQ+ youth homelessness charity, the Albert Kennedy Trust, which works with young people aged 16-25 who are struggling with their housing situation or living in a hostile or abusive environment.
