Rise Together

We're helping our communities build a future economy where marginalized business owners and creative entrepreneurs thrive.

Unlike other marketplaces we prioritize inclusivity and accessibility in all that we do. On Queer Exchange and Rise Market - creatives of color and LGBTQIA2+ folks come first.  

We value Equity.

Committing to equitable practices is not only better for our communities - it's better for business.

We value Community.

Shopping online should be more than a transactional experience - it should build community and relationships, just like shopping in-person. 

We value Innovation.

Whether a business is big or little, we all deserve the opportunity to grow, experiment and challenge the status quo. 

We believe it's beyond important to support small, emerging businesses, and are dedicated to centering underrepresented owners and creative entrepreneurs with additional economic barriers.

These artists and innovators are the cultural foundation of our communities and often the most economically marginalized. 

We welcome you to Rise together on Queer Exchange and join a movement to create virtual events and digital spaces that celebrate queer and BIPOC communities. 

✦✦✦ Building a more equitable future. ✦✦✦

As queer, trans, and multi-racial creatives with unique identities we're dedicated to seeking queer liberation and celebrating the LGBTQIA2+ community. But none of us are free without Justice for Black Lives -- and we must fight equally as hard for racial equity and justice for all Black people, people of color, and especially Black Trans Women.

- we are committed to being affordable, increasing accessibility, and continuing to educate ourselves
- we are committed to centering underrepresented creators including trans/GNC and intersex people, individuals with disabilities, and neurodivergent community members

Rise Market was born in pursuit of this mission in Austin, TX.
Thanks so much for your energy and time.
