Hi welcome to My Pride Store.
I am Andrea Saunders founder, CEO, and Proud Transgender woman. I started My Pride Store because once I finally accepted who I am and started transitioning It did not take me long to find out how expensive it can be. I had a job with what I thought at the time was good insurance but soon found out it was only good if you were cisgender. They have a trans exclusion, which basically means they cover nothing trans related. So I had to find some way to pay for my transition. Which is how my pride store was born. We started by buying a button maker and selling buttons on Etsy. It slowly picked up so we added Pride flags to our inventory. We were pouring our love into every package we sent and soon saw the results as My Pride Store began to really take off! I began to understand how much the LGBTQIA+ community cares for each other. The out poring of love and encouragement the community has given has been overwhelming.
As we continue to grow we start to look to the future. Our next goal is to create a safe working environment for LGBTQIA+ members to feel safe and accepted. We have added some amazing team members and hope to keep adding and giving back to this wonderful community.
So I hope you will come with us on this journey as we strive to spread LOVE, Acceptance, and Rainbows across the globe.
Make My Pride Store Your Pride Store!
