I strongly believe in the “right to be happy.” Everyone deserves this right and no one should be excluded. Yet, in 2021 some of us are still being denied our basic human rights. I may not know exactly how our LGBTQIA+ community truly feels and the obstacles they face on a daily basis but I will gladly stand with them and demand equality. Hoping one day in the near future that it becomes a reality. This week, I am featuring products that support Pride month and those who choose to live by how they feel❣️and love whoever they choose to love.

This powerful slogan t-shirt has gained so much popularity, we can now call it iconic. Otherwild was founded by Rachel Berks in 2012 and has since expanded with more apparel, housewares, and apothecary items. Rachel who identifies as queer also focuses on giving back to many organizations such as Planned Parenthood, The Lesbian Herstory Archives, and The National Center For Transgender Equality. She also supports many grassroots organizations via direct grants through Another Wild Fund. otherwild.com
