Buying a present for someone can be tricky, these are a few ideas for someone who is a part of our rainbow family.
Over the last few months we have done some great reviews on lgbt books.
One of these books that would appeal to anyone with an interest in crime fiction, regardless of the added bonus that refreshingly the main character is transgender. A rarity for fiction, unfortunately especially has it doesn’t just appeal to one subset but a much larger audience.
Perhaps writers and books like this will alter perception in the future, one can hope!
He’s gone is by @_alexandraclare.
Take a look at our recent review
He’s Gone is available from Amazon where you will find good customer reviews too.
Fun laces anyone…..
Or how about this awesome idea instead.
Rainbow coloured slastics, replacing your conventional laces, getting ready for Pride season 2017.
They are available from a Spanish company however the company will ship them out globally.
They also come with enough colours that you don’t have to use them as conventional rainbow flag colours, but would be fun to do so, perhaps if you buy a couple packs then you could break them up and share them out for the kids sport colours, or even other flags in the LGBTQIA community. They would be ideal stuffed into a home made advent calendar you often see these days.
The shoe in the picture is also available too .
If you go onto the site there is a little video to show you how to fit them.
Here’s the link to these alternative fun laces……
Another great project that @TomDingleyPhoto has done this year will make a brilliant coffee table book.
It contains photography and the stories of many lgbtqia people, including @TJ_Knight (writer from Gay Times) and @PeterTatchell (human rights activist) and many more inspiring stories.
Recently I did an interview with Tom Dingley and talked about this inspiring book.
Here’s a link to obtain a copy:
Pride shoes have a flag design shoe available we don’t see too often. It’s a design with the Bear flag on it. However the company do stock other designs too.
Another good review we have recently done was a book set in London by A J Thomas.
Heres the review…..

@WipeHomophobia have many gifts at their online shop.
Some items are limited edition, so it’s best to take a look at what’s available, as they are constantly thinking up new ideas to keep it fresh.
How nice would it be to buy a present for a friend who supports the LGBTQIA community. They have many options. Including mugs, bags and sweats.
The beauty of their shop is all their profits go towards their suicide prevention card project they have been promoting, so a real good cause.
Now Wipe out have some Christmas tee shirt available.
I will constantly update this through November and December, so keep checking in.
Pride matters is not making any profit on this article, merely supporting those who support our community in their own way.
