Pride Always – Empowering the LGBTQ+ Community with Love and Inclusion

March 04

Charmaine Odums is excited to announce the launch of Pride Always. After years of feeling frustrated with the lack of inclusive queer spaces and products, Charmaine decided to take action and create a business that addresses these issues.

Pride Always is a community that empowers all queers to be true to themselves, to love themselves and others unconditionally, and to shine – with a little extra sparkle. The business believes in the core values of Love, Community, Ambition, Boldness, Inclusion, Open-mindedness, and Transparency.

The idea for Pride Always came from Charmaine’s personal experiences and her desire to create a more inclusive and supportive environment for the LGBTQ+ community that gives back to the community. “I chose charities that mean a lot to me. I grew up homeless twice and on welfare, and I have personally experienced discrimination for being black and queer,” she said. “I wanted to create a space where everyone feels accepted and validated in their identity, no matter how new it is, how they look, or if other people know about it”.

Pride Always offers clothing that is designed specifically for LGBTQ+ people, with positive and affirming messages to increase visibility and representation for the community. The business also offers community outreach and events to create a sense of belonging and empowerment for all queers.

“We believe that everyone should have access to resources that will help them love themselves and others unconditionally,” Charmaine said. “Our goal is to empower the LGBTQ+ community through pride apparel, community, and events. We want to create a safe and supportive space where all queers can be themselves and feel loved and accepted”.

Pride Always is more than just a business – it’s a movement. It’s a movement of people who believe in love, inclusion, and the power of community. It’s a movement of people who are tired of feeling excluded and discriminated against, and who want to create a world where everyone is accepted for who they are.

So, join the movement. Join Pride Always. Be a part of a community that empowers all queers to love themselves and others unconditionally. Every Queer is Welcome Here!
