Six Brands Where Lesbians Run the Fashion Show

on

There is a lot of information circulating around the internet on what brands to boycott due to the Trump administration’s anti-LGBT stance (among a laundry list of other reasons…). But what about brands that support the LGBT community? We made a list last year of LGBT-friendly brands to support, which you can find HERE.  But we wanted to put together a list for the fashion conscious, because while we may not feel good in these uncertain times, we can still look good. Right? We’re gay, it’s in our genes.

The brand isn’t lesbian OWNED, but J.Crew President Jenna Lyons is both a fashion icon and ultimate power lesbian. This photo alone gives us reason to shop at J. Crew, in case we can ever look good enough to pull off this look (imitate at your own risk).

Menswear-inspired fashion that uses all natural fabrics  and environmentally sustainable practices. Long and short-sleeved button-ups, tees, bow ties. Kirrin Finch was founded by Laura Moffat and Kelly Sanders Moffat, in Brooklyn, New York. The women have a unique approach in their design. According to their website,  “The name, Kirrin Finch, was inspired by iconic fictional tomboys “Georgina Kirrin” from The Famous Five series and “Scout Finch” from To Kill A Mockingbird. Both these characters embrace the tomboy spirit and are not constrained by society’s views of how a woman should behave or dress. You’ll probably notice that each shirt takes on the name of a tomboy character.”

“Finding a cure for femme invisibility one necklace at a time.” Sasha Lotrian crafts custom-made, hand stamped pieces that let the world know exactly who you are. She started her collection because, in her own words, ” After years of looking for just the right jewelry that would make a statement, and by statement I mean something that would scream “I’m so gay!!” …. I could never find anything that suited my sense of style or personality. It got to be such a problem, I seriously considered getting a tattoo that read “dyke” or “so gay” on my inner arm. Then one day it hit me, if I can’t find what I’m looking for, why not make it myself?!”
