5 Pieces of Merch You Can Buy This Month to Celebrate Pride!

One beautiful way to celebrate Pride is by proudly wearing, waving, or displaying in your yard merch that supports the cause.

Yet, just one week before Pride Month was set to begin, Target caved to an orchestrated attack by anti-LGBTQ+ bigots and pulled items from their 2023 Pride merch collection—which featured items produced by small businesses owned by queer and trans creators, designers, and artists—off their shelves. It is completely unacceptable for Target to abandon our communities to appease right-wing extremists. Sign our petition calling on Target to bring back their LGBTQ+ Pride merch now! It only takes a second.

This action made clear what we already knew: that we can’t trust big corporations—which are more concerned with profits than with progress—to fight for justice.


And if you’re still looking to buy merch for Pride, look no further! MoveOn just launched our own 2023 Pride Collection!

Not only are these items vibrant and unique, but they are also union-printed right here in the United States.

Proceeds will go directly toward supporting the critical work MoveOn is doing to defeat anti-LGBTQ+ politicians, stop the wave of dangerous anti-queer and anti-trans legislation, and pass laws that solidify equal rights—unlike the big-box retailers who use Pride as an empty slogan to try to make a quick buck.

Celebrate Pride in style AND support the fight for LGBTQ+ rights by proudly rocking your MoveOn Pride merch:

1. “The GOP Can’t Drag Us Down!” Short Sleeve Unisex Cotton T-Shirt

The GOP has set their sights on banning drag, with at least 15 states considering or passing bills that would restrict or ban drag performances. Tell the GOP that they will not force artists into the shadows with this limited-edition T-shirt, available in three colors!

2. “Gender-Affirming Healthcare Saves Lives” Unisex Cotton T-Shirt

491 anti-LGBTQ+ bills have been proposed across the country this year, most focused on attacking trans youth and their access to lifesaving gender-affirming care. Show your support for the trans community and your commitment to fighting for equality with this powerful T-shirt. 

3. “Trans Joy Is Magic” Embroidered Bucket Hat

While we all come together to fight back against laws aimed at harming the trans community, we must remember that trans folks deserve more than having their rights protected; they also deserve to live freely, happily, and with love. Protect yourself from the summer sun and celebrate trans joy with our “Trans Joy Is Magic” embroidered bucket hat!

4. Yard Sign: “Pro-Queer, Pro-Democracy, Pro-Gress”

Make no mistake: The attacks on the LGBTQ+ community are directly linked to the broader GOP attacks on our democracy. The MAGA movement wants to turn back the clock on progress and create an authoritarian system where the only people free to express themselves are those who agree with their extremist ideals. Get a yard sign today to share your progressive values and unwavering support for the LGBTQ+ community with your neighborhood!

5. “The GOP Can’t Drag Us Down!” Fan And Button Set

Getting ready to head to Pride celebrations? Keep yourself cool—and on brand—with our “The GOP Can’t Drag Us Down” fan and button combo! Or order a pack so you can hand them out to your friends, family, and fellow Pride attendees!


While our fight for LGBTQ+ equality continues, we must also remember that Pride Month is about more than fighting back against Republican bigots. 

It’s also about celebrating the beauty, joy, strength, bravery, and diversity of the LGBTQ+ community.

We all have to be in this together, in solidarity with all LGBTQ+ folks—especially Black, brown, and Indigenous LGBTQ+ people. The LGBTQ+ community deserves the right to feel safe and supported everywhere.

Join the fight—and the celebration—by getting your very own MoveOn Pride shirt, hat, sign, and/or fan here!
