Why is pride important to us? When we’re discovering or experimenting with our style, it’s important to feel validated in how we want to look.

We strive to inspire confidence, competence, and authenticity through fashion. Our goal is to ensure that everyone, regardless of their accessibility needs, can enjoy this empowering experience.

Why accessibility matters

Digital accessibility isn’t just a checkbox—it’s a fundamental right. Millions of people worldwide rely on assistive technologies to access websites. By making our online presence accessible, we create a more equitable experience for all users.

Our switch to Gravity Forms

Our recent transition to Gravity Forms was a strategic move toward better accessibility. Here’s how it has strengthened our commitment:

Radio and Checkboxes:

  • Previously, some options weren’t grouped properly for people using screen readers.
  • With Gravity Forms, checkboxes and radio buttons are automatically enclosed in field sets, ensuring a coherent experience.

Form Labels:

  • Missing or orphaned labels were confusing for people using screen readers.
  • Gravity Forms generates associated labels for each form field, enhancing clarity and usability.

As part of our ongoing commitment to accessibility on Global Accessibility Awareness Day, we’re thrilled to share our progress and celebrate the positive impact it has on our world wide web.

When did you create your business, and what inspired you to start?

A: January 2nd, 2022. After attending Brave Trails (a queer youth leadership camp), I wanted to create that euphoric experience that you feel at Brave Trails.

That feeling where you can be your full authentic self. As people look locally or travel the world, I wanted to create something that would allow them to be their full authentic selves.

I hope that the queer-owned businesses on our map will provide a safer space for folks. I also think about the queer youth and when I was in high school. I wish I knew of a queer-owned coffee shop that I could sit at (out or not) and see queer people exist and work.

Q: What does confidence mean to you?

A: Being able to stand tall in a room and take up space. Doesn’t mean you have to be the loudest or most bubbly person. It means you know you belong and you can do the tough work even when it’s scary.

Q: What is the biggest lesson you have learned about yourself since starting your business?

A: I need structure. I need to be able to inject fun and freedom into my work. The problem I run into is that it can get chaotic if I don’t create “To Do” lists and schedule reminders.

Q: What advice can you give new and growing small business owners?

A: Roll with the punches and give yourself some grace. You’re going to fall on your face and make many mistakes and it’s all going to be okay. They are all chances to learn, grow and come back stronger.

Q: What is most important for you and your business?

A: To have fun and keep it flexible. I need to be able to pivot and choose my own adventure each day. Those things can easily be lost when building a business so they have been a big focus for me.

Q: What inspired your business?

A: I’ve loved styling but felt constrained by brands and I really wanted to show other women that it doesn’t matter your size, age, or shape you deserve to look and feel great.

Q: What advice can you give new and growing small business owners?

  • Test your ideas. You don’t need the whole picture or a detailed plan to start. Just offer your service to one person.
  • Get help when you can. I had free/low-cost mentoring and training from my local county.

Q: What inspired your business?

A: Divine inspiration. I asked for a sign on how to do more with music then the thought to do a singing workshop for adults came into my mind. I wasn’t keen at first as I wanted to perform more, but I followed my intuition and it’s been amazing.
