Pride month is in full tilt, and if you haven't already adorned your closet with your own LGBTQIA+ flag attire or are just looking for more ways to show Pride and allyship, these Travel + Leisure reader-loved brands are a great place to start.
While the celebration of Pride isn't confined to any one period of time, especially moving forward, June is dedicated to honor the tipping point that was the 1969 Stonewall Uprising in Manhattan. It's a commemoration of the members of the LGBTQIA+ community, especially those who have suffered due to or lost their lives to hate crimes and HIV/AIDS.
This is the time of year when Pride-themed merchandise is widely available and when brands show their support for the community by way of dedicated collections accompanied by sizable donations to foundations that make a difference to the livelihoods of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer and questioning, intersex, and asexual (LGBTQIA+) individuals. So, if there's ever a time to stock up on merch to celebrate Pride all year long, it's now.
These brands, whether LGBTQIA-owned or simply traveler-loved, have collections that we're coveting ourselves and are in some way majorly supportive of the community. Scroll to shop now and stock up for the year ahead.
