Happy Pride Month: Our Commitment to Supporting LGBTQ+ Businesses

June 1, 2021

June is Pride Month, where we support the equality and inclusivity of the LGBTQ+ community. Snappy is proudly celebrating this year with our brand-new June Snappy Collection.

Our June Collection features products from LGBTQ+ owned and operated businesses, which means every item makes a direct impact on the community! We are also proud to partner with GoFundMe to support their Pride Cause which will be available in all our US collections.

Are you planning to have a Pride celebration, happy hour, or other events to mark the occasion at your company? Our collection is a great addition! 

Keep scrolling to take a sneak peek at some of the amazing businesses offered in the collection. 


“We Are Fluide is a mission-driven beauty brand that creates vegan, cruelty-free and paraben-free cosmetics designed for all skin shades and gender expressions. We believe that makeup is joyful and fun — as well as powerful and transformative — and nobody should be left out.

Through providing a platform and amplifying the voices of queer and gender-expansive identities and through showcasing queer beauty, we hope to inspire others to create their identities on their own terms, opening up possibilities for everyone’s self-expression.”

Alder New York 

“We’re a queer and woman-owned independent skincare brand that makes products designed to work for all skin types, no matter your age, gender, or ethnicity. 

We formulate vegan products with the best plant-powered extracts and clean, dermatologist-approved ingredients. We use universally beneficial ingredients, so you know they will work for you no matter your skin type. No complicated instructions or esthetician’s license necessary.”

The Phluid Project

“The Phluid Project, founded by Rob Garett Smith, launched in March of 2018 in NYC and online for access worldwide as a gender-free fashion brand. We joined a movement of humans committed to challenging the ethos of traditions past that inhibit freedom and self-expression.

Our world is grounded in purpose and humanity through fashion, community, activism, and education. The rising voice of today’s youth rejects gender binaries and desires an all-encompassing space, both physically and virtually, that allows us to wear what makes us feel good and express ourselves with freedom and authenticity.

We offer both brick-and-mortar and online spaces of empathy, empowerment, equity, and respect, but, more than anything, really fine products—all chosen for their celebration of the non-binary and the inclusive. The vision? Give folks a chance to explore and express their truest selves—without fear, judgment, or the limits of traditional gender identification.”

Equator Coffees

“In 1995 we had a big idea: make people’s lives better through coffee. Thanks to our community of producers, roasters, baristas, and supporters, that idea has become reality in the two decades since.

That realization inspired our founders to roast and sell coffee themselves from a Marin County garage in 1995. Coffee can be roasted better, brewed better and, most importantly, it can be sourced in a way that makes lives better. That garage became Equator Coffees and marked the beginning of a high-impact coffee company focused on quality, sustainability, and social responsibility. Long before anyone thought coffee could embody any of those qualities.

After two decades, eight cafes and thousands of cups served, our impact has grown but our values remain the same.”

Boy Smells

“In 2016, Boy Smells began as an experiment in candle-making in the Los Angeles kitchen of co-founders and real-life partners Matthew Herman and David Kien. Herman and Kien–both fashion veterans who worked in design (Herman) and product development (Kien)–began by making the things they’d want to use on a daily basis, products that were fluid and essential.

Boy Smells candles are all developed and designed in Pico Union, Los Angeles with fragrance and natural oils, all-natural coconut wax, and beeswax blend. The candles are hand-poured in a reusable glass vessel and hand-labeled in Los Angeles, California.”

This month and every month... 

Here at Snappy, we believe in equality year-round, not only in our collections but within our company. We make it our mission to make sure our team members feel safe, included, involved, and most importantly, celebrated.
