Holidays in the LGBTQ community are celebrated differently compared to our heteronormative counterparts. LGBTQ people like being extra AF and tend to break off the usual traditional festive celebrations, resulting in a modern gay Christmas that is just as fabulous.

Some choose to spread cheer with vulnerable members of the community, celebrate with chosen family, practice self-care or go on an adventure. Other individuals simply decide to be extra with the Christmas decor or party hard by going out for a drag show to revel in the festive fun.

For introverts, catching up on a few LGBTQ movies is always a worthy idea. Not to forget those who can’t miss making traditional Christmas cocktails like the much-loved festive cocktail – the Poinsettia cocktail.

The Poinsettia is a signature and staple of December and fits the festive look thanks to its reddish colour. It is light on alcohol and is a must-have winter drink for holiday parties.

  • ½ oz orange liqueur
