1 Support LGBTQ+ Owned Fashion
Pride is about human rights and equality. For folks within the LGBTQ+ community, it is an opportunity to celebrate and for folks outside of the community it is a time to come out and be an ally.
But for all people, the idea of Pride is something to carry on year-round. Support LGBTQ+ businesses, including fashion and beauty. As Pride becomes more widely popular, picking brands that support LGBTQ+ folks year-long is a clear trend in the right direction.
