It’s a beautiful thing when we can incorporate an extra little touch of gay pride into our everyday lives. Whether it’s through things like enamel pins, stickers, hoodies, jockstraps, shoes, and other pieces of LGBT+ memorabilia, spicing up your life with items that showcase your pride is a great way to support the LGBT+ community.

Honestly, even if you are not you can also fill them full of wine and sip with pride well into the night – we would never judge!
