Slacktivism: How to Save the LGBT World by Shopping

In the current political climate, it’s more important than ever to participate in politics. But what if making protest signs and calling your congressman isn’t your thing? First of all, shame on you. But have no fear, you can still make your voice heard and contribute to causes that benefit the LGBTQ community. By shopping! It’s like the easiest thing to do and you get all new stuff!

Pink Triangle Project enamel pin – Matthew Dean Stewart

Aside from a rainbow flag, no symbol is more iconic of queerness than the pink triangle. And if you’re as obsessed with enamel pins as me, you’ll definitely want to adorn your favorite jacket/coat/bag/tank-top with one of these. Not only will you look very chic but $3.00 of every pin sold is donated to “The Trevor Project.” (Seen in photo above.)

Otherwild x Herstory Collection

A statement tee is perfect for putting queerness front and center. Inspired by a homemade t-shirt seen in a Larry Butler photo from a 1979 March on Washington for Lesbian and Gay Rights, the image is still muy escandaloso today. As part of an Otherwild and Herstory collaboration, 10% of the sale proceeds go to the Lesbian Herstory Archives in Park Slope, Brooklyn. (Seen in photo above.)

Make America Gay Again hat – Human Rights Campaign

Take red caps (and America) back from the MAGA crowd with the HRC’s slogan hat. You’ll also become a member with your purchase.

100% Human tank – Everlane

Sometimes the best messages are the most obvious. Maybe Trump’s America just needs a reminder that yes, queer people are 100% human…at least the tank is cute AF. On top of that, Everlane will donate $5 to the HRC for every tank sold.

You’ve Got This enamel pin – Gay Pin Guys

Just accept your new obsession with enamel pins. It’s a thing. Remind yourself daily that you’re going to be a success, you’ve got this. Proceeds from this pin support the True Colors Fund, which works to end LGBTQ youth homelessness.

Food 4 Thot + GreenBoxShop T-shirts

Are you listening to the Food 4 Thot podcast as much as I am? You’re probably just as excited that they’ve released a line of t-shirts with GreenBoxShop that supports the Trans Law Center. The entire collection is full of wit and difficult to choose. Just remind our fellow Americans that this revolution with be cute as hell.

Rudy’s 1-2-3 Bundle

One cannot live on threads alone. Stay stylishly clean with Rudy’s 1-2-3 Bundle of shampoo, conditioner, and body wash. Every purchase supports homeless LGBTQ youth.

Shop for the cause, my friends.
