Its goal is to celebrate our queer art, beauty, humor, and irreverence while raising money (at least 20 percent of all proceeds) for LGBTQ+ artists and nonprofits. We will continue to discover and celebrate new artists over time, in addition to offering more artistic products created by Glitter Worthy Store’s two co-founders.
