This LGBTQIA+ founded and run brand is famous for their “acne dots” (which we love 😍), but did you know that they partner directly with The Trevor Project? This partnership focuses on supporting and helping connect diverse communities to achieve a healthier, more equitable future.
“Modern scents for genderful™ identities.” Co-founders and partners Matthew Herman and David Kien started making candles in their kitchen in 2015 and are now retailed in over 750 retail locations. With their cheeky candle names and all-natural coconut & beeswax blend, we can’t get enough! If you’re not sure which scent to start with (because they all sound so delish, we get it 🤤) try their botanical votive set. Zen mode: ACTIVATED.
Pride is about recognizing the beauty of acceptance for ourselves and others. As important as parades, parties, and events are for visibility, it’s also important to think about how you can contribute to making society more inclusive. There are a number of ways to get involved with organizations that are dedicated to raising awareness, creating life-saving resources, as well as support systems for the LGBTQIA+ community. Looking for ways to show your support? To continue to strive for equality, here are a few incredible charities you can support.
"Family Equality’s mission is to advance legal and lived equality for LGBTQ families, and for those who wish to form them, through building community, changing hearts and minds, and driving policy change."
"Point Foundation empowers promising lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer students to achieve their full academic and leadership potential – despite the obstacles often put before them – to make a significant impact on society."
"Resource Center pursues societal equity by proudly offering LGBTQIA+ (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer/questioning, intersex, asexual, plus) affirming resources designed to improve health and wellness, strengthen families and communities, and provide transformative education and advocacy."

We hope you will join us in the support and celebration of love in all forms and the growing efforts to encourage change.
