13 Rainbow Pride Accessories You Can Get On Amazon Prime, Target & More

Happy Pride, everybody! If you live in a city, chances are there is more than one Pride celebration taking place near you during the next few weeks. If you don't live in a city, maybe you're planning to take a day trip to one. Either way, a huge part of the fun of attending a Pride event is planning what colorful getup you'll wear to celebrate the occasion. Luckily, there are plenty of rainbow Pride accessories on Amazon Prime and Target that offer a huge array of options for decking yourself out — and, if you happen to be a procrastinator, the good news is they'll also be able to ship them to you fast.

Most Pride celebrations can be traced back to the events that took place at The Stonewall Inn, in NYC on June 28, 1969; however, the iconic rainbow wasn't used as a symbol for the LGBT community until 1978. Gilbert Baker, an artist and drag queen, designed the first Pride flag for a march led by Harvey Milk in San Francisco. He was inspired, he told the Museum of Modern Art, by the need for something beautiful to represent the community. The rainbow came to mind because it was a way to represent the diverse aspects of gay identity. Plus, he said to MOMA, "[I]t’s a natural flag — it’s from the sky!"

It remains the most iconic and frequently used symbol in Pride today — so if you want to add your own unique flair to it, here are some affordable rainbow accessories that are perfect for Pride.
