We love checking out and supporting businesses year-round that are queer and Black-owned. There are so many amazing companies out there trying creative new things – from highlighting books by BIPOC/LGBTQ2S+ writers to providing the most nourishing skincare. Supporting them is a great way to provide direct support to the livelihood of the queer, Black community.
