BHG Editors' Favorite Finds: A Celebration of Pride

In honor of Pride month, the BHG editors share their favorite ways to celebrate.

June is Pride month, and our editors are sharing their favorite ways to celebrate the LGBTQ+ community. Before you dive into this edition of Editors' Favorite Finds, take a few minutes to learn the history of the month-long celebration—then take inspiration from a few of our ideas.

This month, you'll find us attending Pride parades and shopping at local businesses. From the content creators we love following to the queer-owned businesses we can't get enough of, these are our favorite ways to support and celebrate Pride.

Favorite Follow: Plant Kween

"I don't know of anyone more fabulous or flamboyant in the houseplant space. Plant Kween just exudes joy while gushing about a plant on Instagram or TikTok, all while rocking a pair of heels and a gorgeous outfit. Entering Plant Kween's world is always a celebration of both the incredibly diverse plant world and our similarly diverse and unique world of humans."

— Viveka Neveln, Senior Garden Editor

Shop Queer-Owned Businesses

"I love to celebrate Pride month by doing what a market editor does best: shopping. One of my favorite queer-owned (and women-led) businesses to support is MINNA. I'm especially loving these eye-catching recycled glass tumblers. They'd look fantastic on an open shelf, on the table, or in my hand—with a piña colada inside."

— Lauren Bengtson, Market Editor

Find Local Queer Shops

"So much of the conversation around pride this year has involved big businesses, but Pride is about expansiveness! I love Everywhere is Queer, a worldwide, user-generated map of queer owned small businesses. As someone who lives in a small town it's great to see local representation so I can see my community and show my support in a way that matters!"

— Emily Teel, Senior Food Editor

Favorite Follow: Bloom and Plume

"Maurice Harris of Bloom and Plume creates floral arrangements that are works of art, and his Black E Bana series (a play on ikebana, the centuries-old Japanese floral art form) brings so much joy and creative inspiration."

"I've had the privilege of working with the author Sarah Prager on content for and appreciate her thorough and thoughtful work. This book is no exception. It details the history of the LGBTQIA+ community in a way that's easy for children to understand and I am very happy to share it with my two little girls."
