Pride Month is upon us and rainbow capitalism is at its finest. For 30 sunny days every June stores are suddenly swathed in rainbow. Companies are inundating our socials with messages or equality and love.
Visibility is incredibly important, but remember dear readers that Pride was a riot. In the spirit of love, equality, and Queer joy, consider ditching that overpriced rainbow hoodie from Walmart and supporting your local LGBTQ+ community instead.
