June is Pride month, which means that cities across the world are throwing Pride parades, queer people are shouting loud and proud on social media and IRL, and companies big and small are pushing rainbow-themed merchandise. But not everyone is happy about what some people call the “corporatization” of Pride.
"The issue I have with corporate Pride merch is that so much of it profits off a community that doesn’t see support from these same companies in a meaningful way," Liz Margaux, a non-binary bisexual person, tells Bustle. "I want to support queer makers and artists when I buy Pride gear because these are my people... but I want to see these brands actually ally themselves."
But not all companies are selling rainbow clothes — or rainbow dildos — just to take advantage of the LGBTQ market now that the LGBTQ market is accepted enough to be marketed to. Some companies are actually committed to making sex more accessible, inclusive, and fun for people of all genders and sexualities. And those companies are celebrating Pride fully — and most are offering excellent deals. So get your dildos, vibrators, and porn from one of these inclusive sex companies this June. Whether or not they include any rainbows is up to you.
