From Icon To Activist: Mia Khalifa X Aries For Palestine

Mia Khalifa, former adult film star turned social media personality and activist, as well as a previous VOIR cover star, recently made headlines with the release of a limited-edition Aries t-shirt to support the people in Gaza. The collaboration between Khalifa and Aries, a popular streetwear brand known for its bold designs and statements, aimed to raise awareness and funds for those affected by the ongoing conflict in the region.

This is the second collaboration for Aries and Mia Khalifa, with the first being a 2024 calendar with the help of incredibly talented German Photographer Juergen Teller. This time, they collaborated on a t-shirt, emblazoned with a powerful message of solidarity and support for Gaza.

The design featured Khalifa in a veil, holding a watermelon as a pro Palestine tribute. Watermelon has long been a staple of food in the region, and young activists have adopted the watermelon emoji as a tribute, sign of solidarity and as a way of calling a ceasefire. The shirt was available for purchase on Aries’ website, with the aim to donate 100% of profits towards various organisations working in support of the people in Gaza. Specifically, Ghassan Abu Sittah, Children’s Fund, Addameer Palestineand Islamic Relief UK. 

Mia has been incredibly vocal about her support of Palestine, so much so that she was dropped from a Playboy podcasting deal after sharing content on her social media in support of the cause. The release of the t-shirt was a way to use her huge platform and influence to make a positive impact. She posted on her socials “if you can look at the situation in Palestine and not be on the side of Palestinians, then you are on the wrong side of apartheid, and history will show that in time.”

In a statement accompanying the launch of the t-shirt, Mia expressed her solidarity with the people of Gaza and her commitment to raising awareness about the humanitarian crisis unfolding in the region. She urged her fans to join her in supporting those in need and to stand together in the fight for justice and peace.

The collaboration between Khalifa and Aries was met with widespread praise and support from fans and followers around the world. Many took to social media to express their admiration for Khalifa’s activism and to applaud her efforts to raise awareness about the plight of the people in Gaza. The t-shirt quickly sold out, with proceeds going towards organisations providing aid and support to those affected by the conflict.

The release of the Aries t-shirt to support the people in Gaza was just the latest example of Khalifa’s commitment to using her platform for social good. In recent years, she has become a vocal advocate for a variety of causes, including women’s rights, mental health awareness, and LGBTQ rights. Through her activism and philanthropy, Khalifa has shown that she is more than just a former adult film star – she is a powerful force for positive change in the world.
