June is LGBTQ Pride Month: an opportunity to celebrate queer joy while honoring the history and effort of the LGBTQ community. However, LGBTQ visibility and experiences don't disappear when the clock strikes midnight on July 1. In a sea of perceivable rainbows and support, it can be difficult to identify which businesses are queer-owned or actively supportive of the LGBTQ community year-round. 

If you're planning on celebrating LGBTQ Pride Month — or honoring those who've made Pride Month possible — it's crucial to be mindful of how corporations actively support the LGBTQ community far before June rolls around. As an identifying member of the LGBTQ community, this is especially important to me and was curated with extra research and care. 

Bombas Pride Collection, prices vary

Bombas creates our favorite socks during June and year-round, and the brand has since ventured into loungewear as well. While we love the brand's quality, we're especially respectful of their mission: donating one pair of socks, underwear, or a t-shirt for every product sold. During Pride Month, Bombas is supporting The Ally Coalition, which advocates for LGBTQ equality.

Bokksu Snack Boxes, from $39.95 per month

Harry's x Flamingo Face & Body Shave Set, $10

Pepper Pride Mesh All You Bra and Bikini, from $16

Pepper specializes in creating bras for folks with small boobs, and purchases of the brand's matching (but separately sold) Pride bra and underwear set support the Trans Housing Coalition.
