In an increasing number of places around the world, people are being asked or required to wear face masks when out in public, as part of the efforts to stop the spread of the coronavirus.

A number of kink and LGBT-friendly vendors are making masks from a variety of fabrics, and this blog post is intended to provide quick links to them for those who are interested.

Important info

Please note that we can make no medical guarantees about any of the products linked to, nor can we verify that they will meet any specific requirements in your location. If you are going out frequently, remember that any mask may potentially be contaminated, so give consideration to how it can be cleaned, and whether you may need more than one mask, to allow time for washing others. Warnings aside, we hope you'll find this a useful resource that will allow you to buy masks that support clubs and LGBT-friendly businesses. In some cases, there may be a waiting list or delay, due to demand - please check individual sites for the latest info.
