Queer pride is something that should be loud and proud, no matter where life may take you.
It’s not something that should be turned on for one month of the year then put away in a box for the rest of the year (as many corporations seem to think) and we firmly believe that Pride is something to be spread and celebrated all day, every day.
And what better way could there be to work pride into your everyday routine than with fabulously gay tote bags.
We personally think that having items that showcase your queer pride is a great way to show your support for the movement overall – and adds a little something special to your outfit. Little rainbow LGBT socks, a cute pride pin or even a Gay & Tired coffee mug. We love owning all sorts of different pieces that really show the world that we are LGBT+ supporters, and it makes it easier than having that dreaded ‘coming out’ conversation over, and over, and over again.
These items are important because they do not only show the world that you’re for the cause, but they also provide a sense of reassurance for other members of the LGBT+ movement that they are occupying a safe and supportive space.
But which items should you own to show your pride? Well, we think owning an LGBT+ tote bag is one of the many things you can have to really let the world know you are gay and proud! They offer that perfect blend of versatility and fashion. You can use them as beach bags, office bags, uni-bags, gym bags, or even just for doing the groceries (because plastic bags are so unsexy!).
Gay tote bags are big and roomy to hold loads of stuff – and they will last for years if you treat them right. That’s why we’ve rounded up the best LGBT tote bags you can use to really strut your gay stuff.

We’re starting our list off right with this fabulous LGBT tote bag. Featuring a chic black color adorned with pink lipstick kiss marks, this tote bag is sure to draw some attention when you’re out shopping. We think every member of the LGBT+ community is simply gorgeous!
This bag is also made completely from organic cotton, so you can ditch the plastic and help the planet by using a reusable tote bag (and look amazing doing it).
We all know it’s (more than) okay to be gay. We love the message that this bag presents this message, all with a truly unique design featuring triangles and the rainbow colors of the gay pride flag, as designed by artist Gilbert Baker in 1978.
With this bag you can run errands and shop, all while showing the world that you are gay and okay. It doesn’t get better than that.
We’re getting a little saucy with this cheeky, funny LGBT+ tote bag. All tea, no shade but …sometimes even the best of us gay individuals can get a little trashy. Even us.
Own that trashy vibe with this “gay trash” tote bag, which is perfect for when you want the people around you to know that you have no problem getting a little trashy from time to time. We might even encourage it a little.
We are all too familiar with what it’s like to throw some shade (or have some shade thrown at you). You know who else knows that well? Latrice Royale, the incredibly iconic drag queen and contestant of RuPaul’s Drag Race.
Her famous catchphrase “the shade of it all” is featured in the design of this perfect gay tote bag. If you know someone who is a fan of RuPaul’s drag race merch, you’ve got to get them this bag.
Members of the LGBT+ community should already know that they are fabulous, but if they don’t this bag can help remind them. It can also remind the rest of the world when they see this adorable and fun tote bag out in the wild.
This tote bag features the words “Bitch I’m fabulous”, complete with a cute illustration of a llama colored with the rainbow of the gay pride flag. We think that it is absolutely fabulous.
Sometimes, a subtle design that incorporates bisexual references without drawing too much attention to itself is nice too. With that in mind, we thought this Bisexual Popsicle tote bag is perfectly fun while still maintaining a subtle allure.
For many, it might just be a cute popsicle drawing, but for LGBT+ members, we know the colors of the popsicle are the colors of the bisexual pride flag. Subtle and awesome!
As every true fan of RuPaul’s Drag Race knows, “Don’t fuck it up!” is the classic motto of iconic drag queen and superstar RuPaul.
You can spread the love and support for the drag queen community by rocking this tote bag while you’re out and about and shopping. Every fellow fan of RuPaul’s Drag Race will immediately be dying to know where you got this awesome tote bag!
We all have the potential to be queens in the LGBT+ community, and queens deserve plenty of encouragement. That’s why we’ve decided to include this perfect tote bag on to our list.
“Yassss Queen” is a phrase often uttered by the queer community members looking to uplift one another. With this gay tote bag, you’ll be able to uplift all of the local queens while looking fabulous doing it.
Just like RuPaul’s Drag Race, Queer Eye is another celebrated show that has been embraced by members of the LGBT+ community. Featuring an incredible cast of queer hosts, Jonathan, Karamo, Antoni, and Bobby have all been adored by the community since the show premiered.
You can also join the fan club by snagging this tote bag. You’ll surely draw the envy of every fan of Queer Eye, one of the best gay TV shows of all time.
If you couldn’t already tell, we love niche references to icons of the LGBT+ community. Obscure references tend to garner the most appreciation from fellow fans of whoever the reference is about.
With this tote bag (which features an iconic quote from Lady Gaga), you can connect to other LGBT+ community members who appreciate Lady Gaga just as much as you do. How sweet is that?
The quotes continue! This time, this quote bag includes a quote made famous by the cast of RuPaul’s Drag Race.
What we especially love about this LGBT tote bag is the design, which also adds a perfect illustration of a drag queen, clad in a pink outfit complete with a pink wig. No one will question whether or not you support drag queens when you’re rocking this tote bag.
This tote bag is perfect for all of the genderqueer individuals out there. It can be hard to find memorabilia that includes references to the genderqueer community, so we decided to add this tote bag on to our list.
You can be genderqueer and proud by rocking this genderqueer tote bag, wherever it may take you.
It’s not every day you find an LGBT tote bag that references a popular show, all while shining some light on the pansexual community.
This tote bag is perfect for lovers of the show Schitt’s Creek, where David (played by queer icon Dan Levy) utters the phrase “I like the wine, not the label”. This is a distinct reference to pansexuality, which is often overlooked! We love this tote bag for that reason. Fill it with popcorn and bing watch pansexual movies for the ultimate pan pride night in!
Gay tote bags are a great way to promote sustainability, all while showcasing your LGBT+ pride. We think these tote bags are the best at doing both, and we hope you feel the same.
