Purchasing pride flags and rainbow merch from local, queer-owned small businesses like Rebellious Unicorns is an important way to support the 2SLGBTQ+ community and show solidarity with our members in the community. Supporting local small businesses helps ensure that the money spent goes back to the local community and contributes to the visibility and representation of the 2SLGBTQ+ community. Rebellious is 100% 2SLGBTQ+ owned and operated out of beautiful Kelowna, BC, Canada.
Buying your pride merch from a local business means you're being an active contributor in:
Supporting the Local 2SLGBTQ+ Community. Many of these small businesses have been started by community members who have faced discrimination and marginalization in their personal and professional lives. By purchasing from these businesses, you can help ensure their voices are heard, and their companies thrive in your community. These businesses often donate a portion of their profits to 2SLGBTQ+ causes and organizations, meaning your purchase directly impacts the community where you live.
Increasing Visibility and Representation in Our Community. Visibility and representation are crucial for the 2SLGBTQ+ community, particularly in small towns or cities where it may be challenging to find visible 2SLGBTQ+ representation. By purchasing pride flags and rainbow merch from local queer-owned small businesses, you contribute to the visibility and representation of the community in your town or city. When people see these products in local stores or online, they are reminded of the presence and importance of the 2SLGBTQ+ community in their community.
- Supporting Local Entrepreneurs. Finally, purchasing pride flags and rainbow merch from local, queer-owned small businesses is an excellent way to support local entrepreneurs (like me!) who have taken the risk to start a business in your community (and a queer one, no less!). Supporting these small businesses helps them thrive and creates more job opportunities for other community members.
Supporting local, queer-owned small businesses like Rebellious Unicorns by purchasing pride flags and rainbow merch is an excellent way to support the 2SLGBTQ+ community and foster diversity and inclusion. By contributing, you are joining us in creating a tangible difference in the lives of queer community members in your town or city.
