Pride is colorful. Pride is fun. Pride is a celebration—but it’s more than just rainbows. While the items below focus on the literal sunshine and rainbows of Pride, we acknowledge that this month is about something far more important than promotional stuff. There are still people who do not feel safe being who they are, and that’s not okay. So here’s to celebrating Pride—not just until LGBTQ+ individuals are universally accepted, but for years and years to come.

Should you buy from Pride collections?

Branded Pride collections inspire mixed opinions from many people. While some believe that they are an effective way to raise money for queer-focused nonprofits, as well as raise awareness of issues facing the community, others believe it is just another opportunity for brands to jump on the bandwagon and make some more money.

If you’re not sure whether to buy from a Pride collection, it’s important to look for concrete partnerships and evidence of where the money raised is actually going. For example, if a brand is just selling rainbow-colored merchandise, with no speak of how this is going to actually benefit the LGBTQ+ community, it might be best to avoid it.

The vegan-friendly brands below are all dedicated to supporting nonprofits and organizations working to support and uplift the LGBTQ+ community this Pride Month.
