As Pride Month comes to a close, we wanted to explore some ways you can show your support for the LGBTQ+ community with the power of your pocketbook. Here are some great options to be able to shop your Pride.
We kicked Pride Month off by showing some love and support to our favourite Drag Queens projects. As you may know, we are huge fans of RuPaul’s Drag Race, and the fantastic performers it has introduced us to. You can check out our Drag Race posts like our guide to drag terminology for new fans, RuPaul’s Drag Race Quotes and the Queens Who Said Them, The Best of Snatch Game, and RuPaul’s Drag Race life lessons, and The Best RuPaul’s Drag Race Lip Syncs. Oh, and you can also take a quiz to find out “Which All Stars 7 Drag Queen are you?”.
