Happy Pride to all HomoCulture readers. Pride is a time of celebrating our community and commemorating the love and pride of being queer and LGBT. While our community rose from the shadows, it was within local bars and watering holes that the first gay people began gathering.
Now, 50 years after the Stonewall Uprising, there is still a lot of work to be done in terms of advancing queer rights, but so much more to raise our glasses to. What better way to celebrate all things pride than with an adult beverage specifically tailored for the pride season?!
The Pride Piña Coladas are an excellent and deliciously sweet cocktail made with real fruit and juices. You’ll be immediately whisked away to an island paradise, while smiling, laughing, and dancing with your rainbow clad friends this pride. Don’t forget to pay your respects to those that have come before you. But living and being out and proudly who you are is the best pride anyone can have. Raise a glass to pride with the Pride Piña Colada.
