This Pride, Support LGBTQ+ Bars Across The Country

Pride celebrations may look different this year, but it’s certainly no less important.

Following the Stonewall riots, which occurred in New York City at the end of June in 1969,  the month of June has served as recognition and celebration of the impact of the LGBTQ+ community.

Pride events typically include parades, parties and rallies but amidst the ongoing global pandemic, those types of celebrations will have to wait until next year. Although not all  establishments have fully re-opened, many are open with restrictions while others are switching to to-go format and there is no better time to support those the bars and the restaurants in the LGBTQ+ community

Check out a comprehensive list of  LGBTQ+ bars and restaurants by city to keep on your radar this Pride and beyond.
