Loungewear, but make it Pride!

At the risk of stating the obvious, Pride has been a little different this year. This might be the first Pride to coincide with a pandemic, a recession, and an uprising. As one Twitter user so aptly put it: “I’m at the pandemic. I’m at the recession. I’m at the uprising. I’m at the combination pandemic/recession/uprising.”

With Covid-19 still firmly in our midst, the majority of Pride celebrations have gone virtual. On the plus side, these virtual events are accessible from anywhere in the country; no longer limited by geography. We even have unprecedented worldwide events, like Global Pride. Pride 2020 is also introvert-friendly: you can celebrate from the comfort of your own home. Depending on the event, you may not even need to turn your camera on.

But you’ll still want to look cute. There’s something about a rainbow outfit that just screams festive and GAY. I don’t even like rainbows, but I still dressed my dog up as one because that’s what queers do. 

Whether you’re heading out to a Pride motorcade event, marching in support of Black LGBTQ+ lives, or just tuning in to one of the many aforementioned virtual Pride events, you need some new rainbow gear this year. Nay, you deserve it. 

Here’s a shoppable list of rainbow gear you can buy online and express ship to your house, ASAP.
