7 BEST Subtle LGBT Accessories for Everyday Pride

Looking for awesomely subtle LGBT accessories you can get?

June is Pride Month, and for many of us, that means celebrating our sexual identity and/or gender expression in whatever way we feel comfortable.

For some people, that might mean being out and proud at every opportunity. But for others, it might mean subtle displays of pride that are a little bit more under the radar.

These discreet pride gifts and merchandise are perfect for everyday use without having to be out about your sexual identity.

Plus, they’re a great way to show and be proud about your identity or sexual preference at any Pride festival parade or event.

In this blog post, we’ll talk about 7 subtle LGBT accessories you can use to show your queerness without having to shout it from the rooftops.

So whether you’re looking for something low-key to show your support or you just want to subtlety show your pride, here are awesome LGBT accessories for everyday pride.

1. LGBT+ Shoelaces

These 100% nylon Pride shoelaces are a great way to show your support for the LGBT+ community.

They come in a variety of colors, and each color represents something different. For example, the blue laces represent peace and serenity, while the yellow laces represent sunshine and happiness. And of course, the rainbow theme can stand for your queerness. 🙂

Plus, a portion of the proceeds from each purchase goes to support LGBT+ organizations, so you can feel good about your purchase.

Not looking for subtle accessories for yourself? No problem!

Perfect presents for runners, hikers, and individuals who want exciting bright shoelaces for fashion and style, these one-of-a-kind rainbow striped laces are a must-have.

The rainbow shoelaces can be used for fundraising events, given in charity bags, utilized as a giveaway item at gay pride parades and awareness walks — every shoe-wearing member of our community would be thrilled to have them.

2. Rainbow Lanyards

Rainbow lanyards are another great way to show your support for the LGBT+ community.

You can wear them around your neck or use them as a keychain, and they’re subtle enough that you don’t have to be expressly coming out about your sexual identity to rock one.

Bonus: If you find an LGBT lanyard that’s subtle enough, you can even wear it at your office or school without accidentally outing yourself.

Lanyards are also a great way to show your pride at any Pride festival or parade.

Many people wear them at these events as a way to identify themselves as allies of the LGBT+ community.

Plus, they’re just really cool and colorful, and who doesn’t love rainbows?

3. LGBTQ Earrings

Here’s one of my favorite subtle LGBT accessory: these heart rainbow enamel earrings are a subtle way to show your support for the LGBTQ community.

I’m not a fan of jewelry, but I actually love these hoop earrings that are simple yet elegant for regular wear. They’re tiny, delicate, and stunning, but they aren’t showy.

And since they’re affordable and stylish, you can even use them for everyday wear. (brb, sending this list to Mirai so she can get gift ideas for my birthday too!) 

4. Pride Socks

These LGBTQ socks from Goodthreads are a fun and subtle way to show your pride.

Socks are one of the most practical items you can have in your wardrobe. They come in tons of colors and patterns, so you’ll be able to find a pair that suits your preferences.

Also, they’re really comfy, and who doesn’t like wearing socks, especially adorable ones like these?

The best part? You can wear these queer socks and show off the Pride designs if you want to — whether you’re donning your favorite dress, lucky pair of shorts or even your birthday suit. 🙂

5. LGBTQ+ Necklace

In the mood for a fancy Pride accessory?

You may be interested in getting this rainbow love heart pendant necklace so you can own a fashionable accessory that best represents who you are as a person.

Made in Boston, a precious Austrian crystal adorns this birthstone necklace. Since it’s embellished with a love heart stone, you can give it as a gift to your special person to display your love.

It’s a simple and understated piece of jewelry, but it still makes a statement.

Wearing Pride jewelry is also a great way to start conversations about the LGBT+ community. If someone asks about what you’re wearing, it’s a perfect opportunity to educate them about Pride Month and what it’s all about — only if you feel comfortable talking about it.

6. LGBT Shoes

Did you know you can also use shoes as your subtle LGBT accessory?

For example, you have these classic printed floral clog from Crocs. You can use these as both walking shoes and even water shoes for when you’re travelling and going to the beach.

Is laidback more your style?

These rainbow Chex skate sneakers from Vans are a subtle way to show you’re a part of the queer community, without actually wearing loud accessories to come out yourself.

They come in a variety of colors and styles, so you’re sure to find a pair that you like. And they have the rainbow theme, so they’re perfect for wearing to any Pride festival or parade.

Pro-tip: You and your partner can wear the same shoe design, so you can treat this as your couple shoes. Perfect outfit to wear when you’re travelling together as a couple, but don’t want to wear couple shirts. 🙂

7. LGBTQ+ Phone Wallpapers

Finally, you can use tons of phone wallpapers from Pinterest so you can discreetly be proud that you’re a part of the LGBTQ+ community.

They’re super easy to find, and there are tons of different designs to choose from. Plus, they’re free to download, so you can change them as often as you like.

There are also a ton of other Pride-themed wallpapers out there, so you can really go wild with your phone’s design.

Personally, Mirai and I love displaying LGBTQ+ characters from Netflix shows on our phone wallpapers, such as Elena and Syd from One Day At A Time.
