It’s finally June, and here are some ways to celebrate Philly Pride all month long.
Philly Aids Thrift and Giovanni’s Room
Philadelphia’s largest (and gay-owned) thrift store will be celebrating the month of June by showcasing a rainbow of colors in terms of fashion and window displays. What shoppers can find at the storefront is a selection of shirts, pants, dresses, shoes, accessories and even vintage jewelry. Philadelphians can also support the nonprofit by perusing through home goods, games and other thrift items for purchase.
Secondly, Philadelphians can celebrate Pride with Philly AIDS Thrift at Giovanni’s Room in the gayborhood for all of your Gay Pride Month essentials. According to a release, while there, you can find the special Philadelphia edition of the Gay Pride Flag, other LGBTQ flags, pride t-shirts, magnets, buttons and other queer ephemera. Shoppers can also pick up the recently published copy of ‘Queerbook Anthology’ – a collection of fiction and non-fiction work by LGBTQ people from all over the world that was published by PAT during the pandemic.
