Whether you’re celebrating Pride for the first time or the tenth time, it’s normal to feel nervous as you gear up to attend an event! Issues related to gender and sexuality can be divisive, and it takes guts to stand up tall and say, “This is me.”
At Spencer’s, we believe that honoring your true identity is the ultimate flex. If you identify as a member of the LGBTQ+ community or consider yourself an ally, we want you to feel fully equipped to celebrate Pride.
So, what exactly should you bring to a Pride celebration? In addition to sunscreen, water, and maybe a sign bearing a message that’s important to you, you absolutely must wear your best Pride attire. For some, this means rocking a strappy rainbow fringe bralette. For others, a t shirt that makes a bold statement will do the trick.
We’ve picked out some of our favorite Pride tees for those who want to be cool and comfortable while singing, dancing, and chanting throughout June’s celebrations.
The Trendy Tank
If you’re celebrating Pride in a particularly hot place, opt for a tank top! This Rainbow Pride Tank Top is a light and airy option that will make you feel right at home at any Pride event. A simple message of “Pride” is splashed across a bright rainbow graphic inspired by the gay pride flag.
Got a competitive streak? This Rainbow Heart Love Wins T Shirt is for you. No matter how hard the haters hate, love will win every single time. Between its vintage-inspired distressed lettering and charming gay pride heart graphic, this t shirt is MVP material.
The Time Saver
We don’t know about you, but we have places to go, things to do, and people to see. There’s simply not enough time in the day to hate others for being human. This t shirt is a graphically stunning reminder to fill your precious hours with love, love, and more love.
We could stare at this Stacked Rainbow Pride T Shirt all day. It’s no easy feat to create a t shirt that incorporates every color of the rainbow while still looking put-together and chic, but this tee does it effortlessly.
In addition to its powerful message of equality, this t shirt looks like a work of art. Dreamy pink and purple tones are splashed outside of a graphic box, reminding us that it’s okay to color outside of the lines sometimes. Fun fact: this visually pleasing tee shares its colors with the bisexual pride flag.
The Loud and Proud
This isn’t your first rodeo. You’ve been attending Pride events for years, and you’re ready to show the newcomers how to show up, dress up, and speak up! Self-love and courage are contagious, and you never know who you might inspire with your “I don’t hide my pride” attitude.
What’s sexier than pure, authentic love? At Pride events, you’re likely to hear stories of self-doubt that gradually evolved into self-love. You might even meet people who have just recently come to accept and appreciate themselves. The long and winding road to free and undisputed love deserves encouragement, and a simple “stay sexy” can go a long way!
The Peaceful Protester
Wear your pride with confidence! Pride events are especially powerful in their ability to showcase the sheer volume of the LGBTQ+ community. There is strength in unity, and there is major bravado in these skeleton middle fingers.
Pride isn’t just about colorful flags, food trucks, and clever signs (although we love that stuff). It’s about ensuring that the future is safe and supportive for everyone. This optimistic tee makes the upbeat claim that the future is equal. Let’s will it into existence.
Grab your favorite colorful, courageous gear and let your pride shine. Pride celebrations are for everyone who recognizes the value of love, and you belong there. Just make sure you wear your favorite Pride t shirt!
