22 Products Under $30 To Show Your Gay Pride
It’s Pride Month so that means it is time to wear your pride everywhere. Pride is the political birthday of the Stonewall riot, the moment LGBTQ people rose up against being silenced and criminalized for their sexuality. And let’s not forget that we have Gay Rights thanks to Sylvia Rivera and Marsha P. Johnson, two trans women of color, for starting the infamous Stonewall Riots. We’ve gained some serious strides, but LGBT Latinos have even more to fight for.
Wearing a pin might seem like nothing, so here are 21 other ways to tell the world, we’re here, we’re queer and we’re here to stay.
