In The Know is proud to celebrate Pride month. During this month, our team will be highlighting a wide range of brands owned by LGBTQIA +. We encourage you to support today and always.
While founders Ab and Al focus on making non-toxic candles that will burn longer and cleaner than other options, their small but mighty business has a deeper focus. One of Queer Candle Co.’s primary missions is to give back to the queer community by promoting visibility and amplifying the voices of trans women and non-binary people of color.
Each month, Ab and Al donate 10% of Queer Candle Co.’s monthly income to the Sylvia Rivera Bill, which is a New York-based grassroots organization that “strives to ensure that all people are free to determine their gender identity and expression, regardless of income or race, and without facing harassment, discrimination or violence ”.
It is this mission that makes Queer Candle Co. a business to be supported now and always. And donations from Queer Candle Co. give buyers like you a chance to support not only a queer business, but the LGBTQIA + community at large.
“Our entire business, starting from the name and permeating the rest of our work, is formed around a focus on homosexuality,” Ab and Al said on Queer Candle Co. “We are proud to hire other queer people and make an effort to build community with and uplift other LGBTQ + businesses.”
