PrideAf is an inclusive environment where you can buy LGBTQ+ pride/support related products such as badges and flags as well as non gender based menstrual products.
PrideAf was opened because menstrual pads only working on “female” underwear has been a problem faced by both the transgender community as well as others for sometime. Many people who menstruate don’t want to have to wear “female” underwear during their period so I decided I would try to make a way they didn’t have to. Whilst some products are already out there doing the same thing I thought I could increase the availability and knowledge about this option by creating my own.
I also wanted to create an accepting and inclusive space for people to buy reusable cloth menstrual pads. I have noticed that when buying pads (or other menstrual products) whether they are disposable or reusable ones they always tend to be heavily marketed towards women and always refer to their customers as such. I understand that this can make some who menstruate but aren’t women uncomfortable and dysphoric. I wish to try and eliminate this gender based marketing from my products. As well as being inclusive of all who menstruate I also aim to make cloth pads that are less “feminine” in shape and patterns for those who do not wish for their pads to be “feminine”.
I also offer general LGBTQ+ pride related items such as badges and flags for anyone wanting to show their pride/support.
