37 Extremely Shoppable Brands That Support the LGBTQ+ Community

Amid what has already been deemed a difficult year in many ways, it’s important to remember that June is still a month dedicated to celebrating the LGBTQ+ community, despite Pride looking a whole lot different this year.

But between the recent deaths of Black Trans women, the president's attempt to remove non-discrimination protections for transgender people in health care, and a global pandemic all happening simultaneously, Pride will not be just a celebratory bout of rainbow flags and lively IRL parades blasting Lady Gaga bops. This year, petitions are being assigned, protests are happening, and people are actively engaging in activism—potentially more so than ever before.

If you’re one of the people asking yourself: “Okay, what else can I do?” Let us answer for you: Shop LGBTQ+-owned businesses and support brands that contribute a portion of their funds to LGBTQ+ organizations. It’s easy, simple, and quite literally putting your money where your mouth is that can directly aid the LGBTQ+ community in big ways.

To make it as easy as possible for you, we’ve already rounded up the best brands to support at this very moment (...and always) because they're either owned by LGBTQ+ members or have pledged to donate a certain amount of proceeds to organizations like The Trevor Project and GLAAD.

Remember, you don’t have to identify as a member of the LGBTQ+ community to tap into businesses that are either owned by members or support them. (This, my friends, is how you become a better ally). Everyone—whether queer, straight, or however else you identify—can benefit from at least one or two of these products ranging from sex toys, to skincare, to ~fashion~ for your Frenchie. Every penny counts.

June is Pride month, and you know here at Remy Wines that's cause for celebration. We're excited to once again partner with friend and wine educator Adam Knoerzer to bring you three words that are sure to spark joy: gay wine trivia! Even better? All net proceeds will be donated to the American Civil Liberties Union, so you can celebrate inclusion and diversity, support LGBTQ-owned businesses, and give to an organization committed to social justice all at once. What's not to love?! We are putting together "Taste the Rainbow" packs of our wines in case you and your nearest and dearest would like to sip some wine as we play, and you can grab those on our website. So, how does it work? It's pretty straightforward: 1.) Book your spot for the event through www.burghundy.com. The price of $20 is per login/machine, so you're welcome to play solo or form a team with friends if you're joining together — your call! 2.) Log into the session via Zoom (details and instruction will be sent to you following your purchase), then play along using the built-in polling feature. Remy and Adam have cooked up a gaggle of gay wine trivia questions for you all, so be sure to brush up on grapes, regions, and all of the gay icons and references you can imagine. 3.) Play to win! As an incentive, the winning team/individual will receive four (4) complimentary tickets to a 'Burghundy online wine class of your choice, as well as a private tasting with Remy (virtual or in-person, depending on where the winner is located). We're so excited to celebrate Pride with all of you, and we can't wait to see you there!

Ok y'all! We are one day away from June (crazy to think how fast time has flown in quarantine!) which means PRIDE MONTH is upon us! Although PRIDE MONTH this year will look much different with celebrations worldwide canceled, we will be launching two new products that will go LIVE for purchase on our website come the first! ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ We want people to still feel festive and be able to partake in their own PRIDE MONTH celebrations, from the comfort of their own homes. A portion of these PRIDE MONTH baked goods will be donated to the @trevorproject as our way to help say Thank You for the tremendous work they do in the LGBTQ+ community. ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ Pictured: PRIDE MONTH Funfetti Scone (gf)(v)⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ #wprecipemaker #saveurmag #pride #hocsupperclub #thefeedfeedbaking #myallrecipes #thekitchn #foodieflatlays #LGBTQ #bakingaddiction #imsomartha #losangeles #bakingfromscratch #bakingblog #bakingporn #bakeitforward #gay #glutenfree #vegan #bloglovinfood #mydomaineeats #bombesquad #tohfoodie #studiodiysugarfix #forthemaking #thesugarfiles #todayfoodclub #thebakefeed #wsbakerclub #abmfoodie @thebakefeed @thefeedfeed.baking @nanamaryskitchen @buzzfeedtasty @food52 @thekitchn @foodfluffer @foodglooby @homeandfamilytv @lifeandthyme @huffposttaste @saveurmag @tasty @tastingtable @foodblogfeed @inspiredbythis @tasteofhome @betta_with_butta @kingarthurflour @williamssonoma
