June is Pride Month and chances are you've seen at least a handful of businesses' logos that have changed to a rainbow design. At first glance, you might think this means that the brand is an LGBTQ+-friendly company to support, and you want to get behind it. But consider this: Many of these companies are not queer-owned, and while they might employ people in the LGBTQ+ community, they don't all necessarily support queer causes during the other 11 months of the year. If you're thinking about where to spend your money this month, consider supporting freelance artists and small businesses.

One of the best ways to support members of the LGBTQ+ community people is to be intentional with your spending. If you want and are able to buy some new clothes, home goods, or art this month, consider doing so at LGBTQ+-owned brands that make their products with the community in mind. Here are some of my favorite shops.

Below is a little bit about each of the businesses and artists I plan to support this month. This list just scratches the surface of people who deserve your support during Pride, and of course, the rest of the year.

Bianca Designs

Wildfang

What began in a studio apartment in Portland, Oregon, has turned into a business with two storefronts—one in Portland and one in Los Angeles—that reimagines gender norms. Over the years, the brand has donated $500,000 to causes such as the ACLU, Planned Parenthood, and more. If you're into patterned blazers that look fierce and reject the gender binary, this is the place for you.
