BNoticed Encourages Companies and Individual to Show Their Support for the Gay Community
Online PR News – 12-May-2010 – – San Diego, CA – BNoticed, a full service promotional products distributor of logo products and customized apparel, announced the Top 10 Promotional Products to Show Support for Gay Pride.
Beginning this month, many cities begin celebrating Lesbian, Gay, Bi and Transgender (LGBT) Pride, more commonly known as Gay Pride. The pride celebrations commemorate the Stonewall Riots that took place on June 28, 1969 in Greenwich Village in New York City. Stonewall is often viewed as the start of the gay rights movement in the United States. The celebrations, which often include parades, festivals and concerts, attract a wide range of participants within and beyond the gay community. In many larger cities, events attract well in excess of 100,000 participants.
“LGBT Pride is an opportunity to embrace the diversity of the community that we live and work in,” says Gregg Taft, owner of BNoticed. “The LGBT community is an integral and important part of the past, present and future of every community in this country. Gay Pride brings gay and straight people together to celebrate the contributions of the LGBT community, to embrace our differences and look ahead to a future free from all types of discrimination and prejudice. It’s also an ideal time for companies, organizations, family and friends to show their support for the gay community. “
The Top 10 Promotional Products to show support for LGBT Pride are:
1. Rainbow Flags
Rainbow Flags are the universal symbol of gay pride. Business and individuals can show support of gay pride by displaying a rainbow flag outside home or business. Spectators at Pride Parades can show their support by waiving small rainbow flags or rainbow bandanas.
2. Pride Decorated Apparel
Apparel items including T-shirts and Caps featuring gay pride related designs are consistently popular items at Pride events. In addition to designs featuring the traditional rainbow or pink triangle themes, interested parties can contact local LGBT Pride event organizers to find out themes planned for local activities and pursue a design in support of that theme.
3. Rainbow & Pride Message Necklaces & Beads
Rainbow and Pride Message necklaces are popular because they can serve dual purpose for many recipients since they can be worn as a routine indication of their support for the gay community as well as part of a more outspoken ensemble in celebration of pride events.
