PRIDE MONTH IS ALMOST HEREEEEEEEE!!
In the past, I’ve usually attended, minimum, 3 pride weekends around the USA. This year, I’m staying closer to home to work on my fashion collection, but I have so MANY THOUGHTS AND TIPS ON PUTTING TOGETHER OUTFITS FOR PRIDE.

On Theme or No?
The first thing you’ll have to decide is whether or not you want to dress “on theme.” Put another way, “Do you want rainbows or nah?” This blog post will be for the “Rainbow Brigade,” and I’ll post next week with ideas for Pride OOTDs that are a little toned down!
If you want to keep it casual, check out this roundup of Pride tees.
Remember: Gender is a social construct, so wear what YOU want! I’ve included items from both “mens” and “womens” sections below!!
Look #1: Pride Tee Lemon Zesty

As I’ve done work in therapy, read personal development books, etc, I have found that I judge the hell out of myself for feeling negative emotions. Things like jealousy and, you guessed it, pettiness. This last year I’ve gotten better at “sitting with my feelings,” despite their perceived negativity. Jealousy is helpful because it shows me where I want to go. Pettiness helps me stay connected to the full range of human emotion. So, some days, I’m a proud petty bitch. ??♀️??? How do you deal with negative emotions? ?: @thespunkygoat #PettyBitch #psblogger #effyourbeautystandards #qwear #livingmybestlife #LGBTblogger #LGBTbabe #alternativecurves
Look #2: ASOS CURVE
Y’all, this UK-based company has some great gay AF looks for Pride.
Outfit #1: “Slooty” Sparkly Shrug FTW
One of my fave things to wear for Pride is a sparkly shrug (I’m a sparkling unicorn), paired with a bralette underneath. Add some booty shorts, and voila! You will blind the straight/cis combo folks with your outfit.
Look #3: Rainbow Fish Style Icon
Look #4: Unleash the 90’s
Do you also love a matching set? This fire-rainbow combo shirt & short set is divine. Available in up to a 6XL.
Look #5: Sheer Button Down
The Priscilla Ono x Eloquii collection is really bright and colorful, with this blue set looking fab on folks of all genders. Can read as more femme or masc, depending on how you wear it!
Look #6: Femme Faux Leather Mommi
Look #7: Rainbow Dress, Darling!
ModCloth has rainbows all over their website, and this “It’s Only Bright Knit Halter Top” plus size dress ($59) is perfect for Femme babes!
Y’all, hydrating at Pride is important because it is HOT. Wear this $35 TomboyX Pride Sports Bra, and avoid sweat stains! TomboyX is also owned by a queer couple, so shopping here really keeps money in the family. I’m a 40H and I wear a 4X in TomboyX!
Finally, when it comes to choosing outfits for pride – be sure to poke around to see if a brand is donating proceeds from a pride clothing piece or is actually, you know, doing stuff for the LGBTQ community.
