Pride Month is in full swing with a bang of color, and a reminder that diversity is beautiful. While it’s customary for Pride-themed merchandise to spike during the month of June—a practice known as rainbow capitalism, and that’s often criticized and compared to pinkwashing—there’s still tremendous value that can come from these efforts, as it helps increase visibility and may lend support and encouragement to others within the LGBTQ community who are still exploring their identities.
