While we’re pretty big fans of all things ‘rainbow’ and rock the vibrant hues all year round, the month of June is especially sweet because we can take it up a notch. From rainbow wigs, tie-dye socks, and glittereverything, Pride is all about expressing yourself.
It’s a place where you can be yourself without fear or judgment. So be open and wear whatever your little heart desires!
Need some inspo to put together a fab Pride outfit? We can help! From clever tees to rainbow tanks and more, we’ve got a ton of great ideas to share. Ready to slay?
When you think about Pride, what’s the first thought that comes to mind?
Do you think about rainbows? Unicorns? Or perhaps huge parades? While you wouldn’t be wrong for thinking this way, the truth is that Pride is so much more than colorful parties and wild festivals decked out in every color under the sun.
You see, the entire month of June is Pride Month — a full 30 days spent celebrating andrecognizing the LGBTQ+ community and promoting their civil equality in a colorless society that has long denied it to them.
Why June, you ask?
Well, June was designated as Pride Month to commemorate the Stonewall Riots, when in the wee hours of the morning on June 28th, 1969, police raided the beloved West Village gay bar, the Stonewall Inn, prompting a massive riot that lasted for several days. This rioting is what sparked the start of the modern LGBTQ+ liberation movement.
The following year, the Big Apple held the first-ever Gay Pride Parade, and over the last five decades, similar parades have been held all over the globe in celebration of LGBTQ+ pride.
Pretty amazing, don’t you think? While we’re still fighting for equality to this day, it goes without saying that we’ve come a long way since the dark ages when folks were forced to love in the shadows, constantly in fear.
Ready to be a froot loop in a world full of cheerios? We’ve got your back!
Here are some of our favorite Pride tees that are nothing short of fabulous:
Here’s the truth — there’s no such thing as a bad booty. ALL butts are created equal, and if you ask us, they’re all fine as hell! Here at Famous In Real Life, we like big butts, and small butts, and flat butts and weird butts. We also like our butt and your butt.
Come to think of it, we just like butts in general. But then again, who doesn’t?
Cats, parades, and rainbows? Yeah, sign us up!

Being straight was a phase—being gay is a lifestyle. #SorryNotSorry
Beat the heat, and don’t forget to wear a cute hat, like this sweet rainbow dad hat!
Look, no shade on designer wardrobes, but life is like, SO much freakin’ better out of the closet.
If you haven’t left the comfort of your closet yet, just know that you have an entire community supporting you when you are ready, and most importantly—you are loved.
How cool is it that we live in a world where everyone has the ability to spread love to the moon and back? It doesn’t matter if you're transgender, straight, gay, bisexual, or lesbian. We can all love without limitation. Because love is love—it’s universal. And it’s as simple as that.
Some people don’t identify with a gender, and that’s perfectly okay! Besides, binary is for robots, and robots are not cute. And seeing as we’re freaking adorable, we’ll just steer clear of gender identity, mmkay?
Want to add some grooviness to your look? Check out these rainbow tie-dye socks. They are pretty awesome if you ask us!
Can’t even think straight? Don’t worry; we can’t either.
