When you think of October, you may think of Halloween, Columbus Day, Black Friday sale, and the Breast Cancer Awareness month.
On October 11, however, the LGBTQ community (along with their friends and supporters) celebrated National Coming Out Day. It's an event they hope to be free to celebrate annually.
It's not just friends and family that are supporting the cause for LGBTQ equality. We live in an age when a growing number of beauty brands are showing their support for gender acceptance, too.
Here's a list we rounded up:
Celebrities like "Batwoman" star Ruby Rose and "Master of None" star Lena Waithe have been crucial in the promotion of this gender-neutral clothing brand.
Launched by Stoney Michelli and Uzo Ejikeme in Los Angeles, the brand is on a mission "to create a space (in the industry) where all are welcomed with no judgments."
Another L.A.-based retail company and design studio, Otherwild was launched in 2012 by Marisa Suarez Orozco and Rachel Berk. They have a collection of clothing, self-care products, and art celebrating LGBTQ pride.
They also host workshops and community events that cater to various creators and artisans.
Binders are no longer just a girl's best friend. Now, they can be for everyone regardless of gender!
That is what Marli Washington, founder of GC2B who identifies as a transgender, believes in. The company is the first-ever gender-affirming apparel company owned and operated by a transgender.
The brand creates binders as an alternative to sports bras to help those dealing with gender dysphoria.
The brainchild of Emma Milroy, the company offers a wide array of apparel dedicated to tomboy fashion. They are working to make the LGBQ-inclusive brand more accessible worldwide.
Their clothing line includes blazers and button-ups in different sizes and patterns, as well as accessories inspired by a diverse team and community.
Tomboy Exchange, Inc.
The underwear company has an entire line of clothing and fragrances that cater to the LGBTQ community everywhere.
It is owned by Fran Dunaway and Naomi Gonzalez, who both identified as tomboys, thus wanting to fill a niche of menswear in women's wear.
The cosmetics company was founded in 2017 by Jessica Blackler, a freelance makeup artist who launched her own brand at age 21.
The brand later had a re-launching in collaboration with YouTuber Joseph Harwood to announce their new line of Unisex cosmetics. Blackler also offers her trans customers one-to-one makeup tutorials.
Sleek MakeUP x Miss Fame
RuPaul's Drag Race Season 7 alum Miss Fame collaborated with Sleek MakeUP to create a cosmetic line that is accessible for everyone.
The collection includes Gloss Impact shades, a highlighter palette, a pencil eyeliner and a liquid eyeliner -- all made for creating that striking look that is gender-inclusive.
The long-time beauty brand is known for its strong support in the advocacy for HIV and AIDS awareness. Now, Viva Glam -- MAC's charitable campaign -- is celebrating its 25th anniversary with their first-ever spokesperson, RuPaul.
Beauty vlogger Nikita Dragun won the hearts of her followers on social media, as she documented her transgender journey.
The beauty influencer recently launched her own beauty brand that offers complexion beauty products in purple egg-shaped cases laden with crystal.
