Whether you're looking for something to wear on a night out, that's comfortable enough to sleep in or a piece that'll let the world know exactly who you are - there's no shortage of labels wanting to get their hands on your pink pound. But with some of these brands giving a good portion back to LGBTQ+ charities, they're doing more than just ticking a box for Pride.
From Manchester based Gender Free World making stunning gender neutral, size inclusive clothing from shirts to underwear, to London based ES Collection who specialise in swimwear and undies - these are just some of the brands making a difference to gay fashion. Plus, the likes of Kxmolo (an analytical chemist and interdisciplinary artist who creates a range of queer art inspired by '90s anime, sci-fi, Afro-Futurism and science/science fiction) and Weird Wednesday (a Cardiff based brand selling everything from gender neutral baby clothing to leathercraft goods including wallets and bum bags) are doing something different by not just creating products for an audience they think will buy them - but creating a brand that makes you proud to be queer.
In the capital, London's Soho has plenty of gay stores with Regulation and Clonezone among the largest, stocking aromas, lube and sex toys as well as fetish clothes, jewellery and accessories. For something more cultural, try LGBT+ bookshops like Paned o Ge and The Queery.
