Gay Pride 2021

Gay Pride 2021

Support LGBT businesses this month and every month!

From Queer to shining Queer!  Happy Pride!


As a member of the queer community, Exit9 strives to uplift the various communities that surround us, like the LGBTQ+ makers and entrepreneurs.   We curated a gay owned box so you too can support the LGBT community. 

Because of the fact that we are a LGBTQ+ owned and operated gift shop, it’s important for us to not only supply fun, colorful, and spectacular gear for Pride season, but also to support and stock products from LGBTQ+ owned and operated companies year-round. From product makers and card illustrators to pin producers, seed curators, and candle companies, here are some of our favorite products from these LGBTQ+ businesses that you can find in our LGBTQ+ Owned Box, or individually in our online shop.

LGBTQ+ Spotlight

Exit9 is a proud supporter of LGBTQ+ owned businesses. We are thrilled to host their products on our shelves.


Queer Candles is comprised  of Ab (they/them) & Al (she/her), and they've been making candles together since 2017.

Each candle is topped with a visual representation of the scent (generally herbs, but sometimes including dehydrated fruits or salt rocks)! The soy wax candles burn longer and cleaner than paraffin options, and their attention to detail in sourcing materials means that fragrances are fresh, non-toxic, and authentic!

Pride Socks - As their name suggests, this company, run by Rachel Smith who identifies as a lesbian, focuses on flaunting your feet and embracing your pride no matter who you are with some of the coolest rainbow-themed socks. With messages of “love, pride, respect, and inclusion,” what’s not to adore about this queer owned-business?

Ash + Chess - Full of neon colors and funky typography, Ash + Chess, a stationary brand made up of queer power couple, Ashley Molesso and Chess Needham, is based out of Richmond, Virginia and regularly creates LGBTQ+ stationery, stickers, tote bags, risograph prints, and most recently have released The Gay Agenda, a comprehensive book full queer history which we have in stock just in time for Pride Month. 

The Found - The Found is a LGBTQ+ owned company "found"-ed by Jim York and Albert Tanquero, that produces colorful and spunky greeting cards, enamel pins, mugs, stickers, pouches, and more. Their iconic illustrated pop culture references are what set them apart from other vendors and make them one of the best-selling brands in our shop.
