Recently, SEVENTEEN traveled to the Philippines. The group is continuing their 2022 WORLD TOUR ‘BE THE SUN’  with shows in Manila.

Hoshi was spotted wearing a cap, but not just for fashion or to cover up his hair. It actually has great significance.

The cap is from Balenciaga‘s 2022 Pride collection. It features two persons with half skirts, representing “Anybody Is Queer.”  One does not have to be a certain gender to be with another.

While the cap costs $495 USD, 15% of sales go towards the LGBTIQ+ human rights non-governmental organization Outright Action International. So, over $74 USD is donated with each purchase.

OutRight Action International is a LGBTIQ human rights non-governmental organization that addresses human rights violations and abuses against lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and intersex people.

LGBTQIA+ CARATs couldn’t be more excited to see Hoshi’s fashion choice. Not only is it a bold statement in a still conservative South Korea, but knowing proceeds directly go to help people, too, makes it even better.

This isn’t the first time Hoshi has worn an item supporting the LGBTQIA+ community. Previously, he wore a shirt that read “They/Them” in the “CHEERS” MV.
