    Anyone else have something LGBTQ+ in your house that makes you just happy and seen whenever you use or see it?

    I have a mug that was the first gay thing I got and I used it to come out to a lot of people- like “hey, look at my new mug”
    It says I’m Gay, Generally Awesome Ya also I’m Gay. And it just makes me happy every time I use it.

    What’s your favorite/most sentimental LGBTQ+ thing you have?

    Probably my two tiny pride flags- one trans, one bi. I had them shoved in the zipties that held the lights under my bed in college so they hung down by my desk. I've unfortunately had to stow them away for the time being, but when I move out I'll be happy to display them again.

    A slim rainbow scarf tied to a bar in my headboard and the rainbow lei hanging off my wardrobe. I got them at my first pride along with a rainbow flag that’s in my wardrobe.

    I wear a braided rainbow braided bracelet. Undergarments usually have some pride flair as well. Important for it to be minimalist in the super religious and conservative community I live in.

    Can't go wrong with a good old fashioned pride flag. I have a mini bi one sticking out of a mug on my desk.

    Well if it is ok, i would like to share my love for Gay pride pins especially those that i've seen recently on some guys. I don't know i think pins and flags, as were mentioned above - good old classics is always fascinating. By the way after i saw that guys i have also bought myself some pins. Why not, i say? I mean why not to express myself in a proper way?

    I have a bookmark that I bought back in June. I had felt so proud of myself to openly look at the Pride display and then buy the bookmark without fear or apology.

    My favorite pride merch are probably my pride flags, especially my trans flag that's currently hanging up in my room. I got another pride flag hanging on my ceiling too. I also got a Sailor Moon pride themed shirt my dad got me for Xmas one year that I really like...I wore it to pride last year.

    I have little flags for my identities too! I have a boyflux one and an aroace one! I used strips of construction paper, layered them, and taped them to dowel rods.

    My favorite is my DIY pride stuff. From the moment I had an inkling of my identity, I started making stuff for it. I have old flags from forever ago lol. I recently made pride pins for my backpack, when I take it, but I have to take those off around my conservative family...

    Nice! I thought about tye-dying some stuff in the trans and bi/pan colors- but can't because I had to go back in the closet.

    My brother would probably be the only one, now that I think about it.

    ** the following involves some X-rated language, proceed with caution... **

    So some of you might know that one of RuPaul's favorite slogans is "Charisma, Uniqueness, Nerve and Talent" - describing the qualities that Mama Ru looks for in his apprentice drag queens.

    I have a beloved T-shirt with that slogan, where the words are stacked *vertically*. Over the years I've forgotten that the punchline spells a certain *other* word...

    Last summer I was wearing it around town and I saw a woman staring at me in shock, like a deer in headlights. I thought, what the hell, was I that sloppily groomed (goblin mode, etc) ? Only later did I realize what shirt I was wearing.

    Time to just leave it in the closet ?
