Happy Pride Month!  

When you get to planning and wedding spending—whether it’s during Pride Month or year round—be sure to support LGBTQ+-owned businesses, like these ones. You may be surprised to see many cult favorites on this list.

Heavenly LGBT+ Wedding

Makeup & skincare

W3ll People

Here’s one for the clean queens. W3ll People is best known as one of the cleanest mainstream makeup and skincare lines out there. If you have sensitive skin, or if you’re just eco-friendly, and you’re looking for natural, neutral tones, this LGBTQ+ founded and owned collection is for you.

MAC Cosmetics

Hello RuPaul fans! If you’ve ever worn MAC makeup, you know it walks the walk. But did you know that it also walks the talk? Over 25 years ago, MAC Cosmetics founded the MAC AIDS Fund, which has since raised over $500 million to support people living with HIV/AIDS.

Kiss My Face

The founders of this common skincare line are anything but common—an LGBTQ+ couple who have been together for over 40 (!!!) years. Treat yourself to this fab line, even if you’re balling on a budget.

Michael Kors

Wardrobe overhaul or just a few staple pieces from the Michael Kors collection will have you feeling bold. Celebrate pride with the Pride 2021 Collection. All proceeds go to OutRight Action International.

For swimwear that’s designed to fit a spectrum of bodies, Humankind was created by a queer woman to be gender inclusive. Check out their Pride collection for comfortable, proud swimwear.

Food & beverage

Cowgirl Creamery

Um, yes. Of course there’s an LGBTQ+ -founded and owned cheese company. Look no further than Cowgirl Creamery, out of California. Monthly cheese clubs, party boxes, and pairings—why am I just now learning about this?

Remy Wines

Remy Drabkin’s love for winemaking started at a young age. After years of studying Old World wines, Remy Wines was founded and has since grown into a rad winery with a huge helping of activism. Check out their affordable, unique bottles.

Wine Country LGBTQ Wedding
Intimate Tahoe LGBT+ wedding

While I normally celebrate pride month all month long on my IG feed and website, I don’t have many new images to share with you due to the pandemic year.  I’ve got plenty of back posts to help you plan your LGBTQ+ wedding though, like Timeless LGBTQ+ Wedding Trends, LGBTQ+ Friendly Wedding Specific Resources, Interviews, and LGBTQ+ real weddings
