10 LGBTQ+ Brands You Can Support This Pride Month

Sorry, not sorry, big business.

With Pride Month here, a lot of big businesses/brands are already toting the rainbow flag as a means of showing their support. And I love a rainbow just as much as anyone else, but it can feel a little underwhelming and performative—as it often seems that Pride is the only month these brands show their support to the LGBTQ+ community. That’s why I’ve put together a list of LGBTQ+ brands that you can check out and perhaps open your wallet to instead. From apparel to candles and binders, there’s a little bit for everyone to enjoy!

1. Gay Pride Apparel

What they sell: Shirts, hoodies, mugs, blankets & more

Why I love them: First of all, they have discreet packaging just in case if you’re in an unsafe environment. Secondly, Gay Pride Apparel is a first-generation Mexican-American & LGBTQ+ brand. Their focus is to empower the queer community and to make them feel like their authentic selves all year ’round.

2. Nose Best Candles

What they sell: Candles

Why I love them: They create “tongue-in-cheek” candles that are non-toxic, lead-free, handmade in small batches, and sent out in reusable packaging. From Bitch Goddess to Mountain Daddy and Morning Wood, each candle has its own unique scent and cheeky description that captures what each particular candle is all about.

3. Third Polaroids

What they sell: Earrings, stickers, bags & more

Why I love them: Ten percent of the profits from their Pride collection is set to go towards local/Canada-based LGBTQ+ charities. Also, they’re really flexible about working with customers to make the flag that best represents them. And discreet packaging is a major plus!

Why I love them: Moth Goths is an Asian Latinx-owned brand with items that are cute, to the point, and noteworthy. And their mission is to “help people feel beautiful and comfortable while also embracing beauty in art.”

What they sell: Prints, keychains, and apparel

Why I love them: They are an LGBTQ-owned brand that designs cute cottage-core-inspired goodies with a Pride twist. Even better, if you see something in their shop that you like, but you’d rather have it on something else, they have a Redbubble shop too!

10. Nerdy Keppie

What they sell: Apparel, footwear, wall art, and more

Why I love them: Nerdy Keppie is a nerdy queer-operated business that couldn’t find the colors and variants they wanted for Pride so they decided to go ahead and make it themselves! Also, the dresses have pockets, people. That alone sold me instantly!
