How can you play a role in Pride month? It’s a lot more than just slapping a rainbow on your social media pages. It’s quite simple. Educate yourself on LGBTQ issues, shine a spotlight on LGBTQ voices and support LGBTQ businesses. It’s about making a conscious decision to buy products and donating to LGBTQ charities.
LGBTQ businesses are often overlooked in comparison to other demographics. This is why it is important to support these LGBTQ businesses, not only this month but also throughout the year. As an LGBT-owned digital marketing agency in London, we’ve got you covered on which businesses to support! Check them out below.
Mask4Mask is a mask business started during the pandemic! It not only raises funds for an LGBTQ charity Switchboard but tackles exclusive and oppressive attitudes in the gay dating scene. For every mask sold, a donation is made to Switchboard, a helpline that offers support and guidance to the LGBTQ Community.
Proud beer is a queer beer for good. With a strong focus on supporting LGBTQ charities and causes, Proud beer is more than just a label, it’s a statement. Every beer sold is a direct donation to their LGBTQ charities who are partnered with them.
The first and only erotic boutique in the UK for and by women, Sh! Women’s Emporium was founded in 1992 as a much-needed antidote to the male-dominated sex industry of the time. It is one of the best LGBTQ businesses to support and is situated in a cafe too!
The Glory is East London’s drag hothouse, gay bar, and performance venue! It is known for creating a safe space for up-and-coming talent as well as welcoming established performers.
The Apple Tree is not your run-of-the-mill pub! It is independently owned and proud to be non-conformist. They are proud to offer a warm welcome to all and home to the LGBTQ+ communities and to those living an alternative lifestyle.
