It’s Pride Month and most people are now familiar with the rainbow flag. There are also many more pride flags that are used by LGBTQ+ communities and lots of artists, makers and small businesses have created products that help you show your pride and identity. Here’s some of the cutest ones I’ve spotted recently.
Catmint Studios (US) have a new Be Gay Do Crime collection on Kickstarter that includes both enamel pins and stickers with lots of options for pride flags, pronouns and allies. It’s all fully funded with a few days left to get your pledge in.
The Pin Prick (UK) stocks a wide range of LGBTQ+ pins and also shoelaces. They come in two lengths and you can add an optional set of lace locks shoe charms. There’s free international delivery this month too.
Pair those with a ribbon cardigan from Clammy Heart (US). These have so many options to choose from and the ribbons are also available as hair bows.
Stickers are an affordable way to cute up your phone, laptop or notebook and there’s plenty of kawaii pride flags on Etsy. These sheep by cuteNbloom (EU) are so sweet and there’s matching badges too.
SoftestGhoul (EU) has a few different sticker designs with potions, crystals and bubble tea. I wish you could make these in real life as they look so good.
Can you believe these are real birds? Nature is amazing! Mel Tillery has drawn a whole flock of birds with Pride flag colours and you can get them as stickers, t-shirts and more at Redbubble (worldwide).
Meowchi fans need to head over to Tasty Peach Studios (US) as there’s a whole Meowchi Pride Flag Collection up for pre-order.
It’s so hard to pick a favourite from all the amigurumi toys by SweetToysByNata (Belarus). If frogs aren’t your thing, there’s axolotls, bumblebees, bats and bears – and even Cthulhu! All can be customised with your choice of heart colours and would make a great gift.
