Why Shop With Us
Our Vintage collection pays homage to historical queer pins. These buttons are recreations of significant designs from the past 50 years.
The collection is not only a tribute to the past, but a reminder that the same fights for LGBTQ+ rights and acceptance are still relevant today. These buttons are a way to honor the brave individuals and organizations who have fought for queer rights throughout history and to continue to recognize and fight our struggles in the present.
Proud Axolotl started back in early 2021 as I, at 15, was coming to terms with the fact that I was (well, am) transgender. Launched in March 2021 as PronounPins.org with 120 pins total, things quickly grew. By August, the brand became Proud Axolotl, I launched over 30 pronoun pin designs and I was shipping dozens of orders a day.
Then the sh*t hit the fan. A combination of school starting up again, depression and taking on more than I could handle really hit in November of that year, culminating in me abandoning the project.
Now I’m climbing back on board, slowly but surely. My goal this time is to ensure it’s sustainable and transparent.
I’m looking for artists and makers to join me, if that’s you (or you have any questions or feedback!) please email me- email@example.com
