Happy Pride Month! This month (and every other month), we celebrate the achievements and the strides the LGBTQ+ community has made toward freedom, equality, and acceptance. Amongst the fun parades and marches, we also want to uplift the community by supporting LGBTQ+-owned businesses.

Whether you're looking for coffee, vegan hot dogs, or beautiful jewelry, here are 12 sustainable LGBTQ+-owned businesses that will make you want to tap "add to cart."

12 Sustainable LGBTQ+-Owned Businesses to Support

Couplet believes specialty coffee is for everyone. It's a women- and non-binary-owned business that makes sustainably-sourced coffee, as well as cute apparel and delicious coffee-scented candles.

Boy Smells, founded by Matthew Herman and David Kien, has a cult following. And it's easy to see—or, umm, smell—why. The famous candles are developed and designed in Los Angeles using an all-natural coconut wax and beeswax blend instead of paraffin wax, use non-bleached, lead-free cotton wicks, and can be upcycled as beverage tumblers.

Meow Meow Tweet is a non-binary-owned business making ethical and vegan personal care products. Some of its most popular products include deodorant sticks and body bars. (Fun fact: Meow Meow Tweet was actually the first company to make its deodorant in a compostable tube!)

Soapwalla crafts natural and vegan skincare products for all humans. It's a queer woman-owned business based in Brooklyn that has a passion for inclusivity, activism, and eco-consciousness.

Add a little more spice to your life with Diaspora Co. This queer-owned company is working to build a better spice trade by sourcing directly from its partner farms and paying them six times more than the commodity price.

Yeah Dawg is keeping fake real with its plant-based, soy-free, and gluten-free hot dogs. The hot dogs are made up of a variety of vegetables and spices and taste great on a bun or as a sausage in your favorite recipes.

Kirrin Finch uses sustainable fabrics and makes menswear-inspired apparel for female and non-binary bodies. Founded by Brooklyn-based couple Laura Moffat and Kelly Sanders, the company is passionate about embracing freedom of expression while still being eco-conscious.

Wildfang makes gender-fluid fashion for all. The brand is committed to rethinking gender norms sustainably by having an SA8000 Certified factory and removing 80% of unnecessary product packaging.

We Are Fluide creates vegan, cruelty-free, and paraben-free cosmetics for all skin shades and gender expressions. It offers a variety of makeup products for anyone to enjoy, from sparkly eyeliners to bold liquid lipsticks. It even has a new pride set this month.

10. Homoco

Homoco is a queer swim brand that makes its printed trunks out of recycled plastic and camp shirts from sustainably-harvested Tencel. It also donates a portion of its sales to organizations that support the rights and improves the lives of queer people.

Automic Gold is a queer-owned business making radically ethical and affordable jewelry. It's certified by the SCS for 100% recycled content, and each piece is handcrafted by expert goldsmiths in New York City.

NOTO makes multi-use, natural, cruelty-free, and vegan skincare and makeup that anyone can use. Its products also come in sustainable packaging, because self-identity should be fun and protective to the environment.
