12 Amazing Queer-Owned Businesses to Support this Pride Month!

Posted by Katrina Darwin on

As June rolls around, you might have noticed large corporations changing their logos to rainbows, adding the LGBTQ+ acronym to some of their marketing, and overall making it seem as though they are supporters of the LGBTQ+ community. Unfortunately, most of these large companies are doing it only as a cash-grab, a way to lure queer people into thinking that they are allies when in fact they are just looking to cash in on the Pride Month pandemonium. 

What is a queer to do? Well, the best way is to support small businesses that are actually owned by queer people, and that is why I made this list! 

Note: All of the opinions in this article are my own. I have not been sent products or paid to promote any particular brand. The shops on this list are listed in alphabetical order to minimize any personal bias or favoritism.
