You Need To Shop From These 18 Indian Queer-Owned Small Businesses On Instagram, Like, Right Now

Products as diverse and vibrant as the people who create them! 🌈

While Pride Month ushers in an incredible amount of queer joy, it also drags along a plethora of corporations with their Pride-themed merchandise that, unfortunately, make no difference to the lives of the people from the LGBTQIA+ community.

Ergo, here’s a guide to some small businesses owned by people from the queer community that you can shop from and help make an actual difference. This list is, however, by no means, exhaustive, and we urge you to continue lending your support to your local queer-owned businesses, all year round! 🌈
