At Boone’s Red Onions, we make delicious pickled red onions that will add complexity and color to any meal.
What's up with this little icon? My partner and I created this to show that Boone's Red Onions is proudly owned and operated by a trans person (me!). I worked as an advocate in the LGBTQ community for years. I saw the ways LGBTQ people, and especially trans and gender-nonconforming people, are constantly discriminated against in employment. This is happening despite laws that are supposed to protect us. Witnessing this and experiencing this, I realized that entrepreneurship is a key to empowering the transgender community. My dream is that someday Boone's Red Onions will grow to employ a diverse staff and will be able to support other trans entrepreneurs.
3% of our total profits each year will go to an organization working with the transgender community. 10% of profits from our Tangy Lime Red Onions go to supporting the LGBTQ+ Honduran community.
