HAPPY PRIDE MONTH!!! I could not let this month pass without showcasing an amazing LGBTQ+ company named The Noun Lounge! I am so fortunate to bring you one of the founders, Aiden Howery, a 24-year old trans man. Aiden started his first clothing brand when he was 17 called Mistaken Artists. But he wanted to create something different and unique. The other co-founder, Taylor Ray came to him saying he would love to start a business, but didn’t know what. One day he was like “you know what would be dope? An LGBTQ+ inspired streetwear brand…” aaaaand The Noun Lounge was born!
The Noun Lounge is a trans-owned all inclusive LGBTQ+ streetwear brand based out of the Midwest. The main goals are to bring awareness to LGBTQ+ community by spreading a positive message through apparel.
Join me and Aiden as we discuss:
- Why the name "The Noun Lounge"
- The importance of pronouns
- Coming out
- Helping pay for gender transitioning surgery
- The danger of existing
- Afraid of failure
- Being an artist
- Inclusive sizing
Where can you find Aiden Howery
