June is Pride Month. Now, more than ever, it's important to keep LBGTQIA+ issues at the forefront and let your pride flag fly.

Pride is about affirming the identities and increasing the visibility of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender people—those who have been marginalized and told that who they are doesn’t matter. Making art can be therapeutic as well as productive, and there are many creatives who express themselves in doing so. Some sell what they produce on Etsy.

Often, these shops fill in the gaps where products for LGBTQIA+ people are lacking. Little Pickle Memories, for instance, was born after moms Emma and Nat struggled to find a baby book that accurately represented their family. What started as one book is now a range of products that feature all sorts of families, from same-sex couples to single parents.
