Pinback buttons have been around and used for hundreds of years – literally hundreds of years; the first patented pin was made in the United States in 1896! Pinback buttons have mainly had a political application being used to promote a political candidate and their slogans, but the last few decades we’ve seen them used for activism such has the civil rights movement, saving the rainforests & many other causes, like the equal rights to marry.
With the recent Supreme Court ruling making on equal marriage rights, making it a right across the United States, I wanted to share some pinback buttons that others have made to help the cause and that promote equality for the LGBTQ community.
Pinback Buttons might not be able to directly change the world, but they can help by making it easier for you to be heard!!
