Give a little, get a lot

It's hard out there for retailers and designers. What with the deluge of sales and emails, it's easy to get lost in someone's inbox. But this also makes it hard for consumers! Fear not, dear reader. Though your sights (and wallets) may be ready for mainstream outlets with their discounts on discounts, we're here to help you send love to those independent retailers we know you want to support.

So why not mosey on over to an LGBTQIA-rooted brand and give them a lil' Black Friday loving—even if they aren't doing anything particularly Black Friday-esque? You'll not only find items you can't find anywhere else, you'll be supporting queer people. Some brands even take their revenue to the next level and put it toward helping LGBTQIA people in need. A gift that keeps on giving? Who can argue with that? Add these places to your cart now.
