It’s Pride season and that means LGBTQ celebrations are happening across the world. But what if you can’t make it to a parade, or perhaps crowds aren’t your thing or are less than accessible for you? Here are a few ways to celebrate Pride while in the comfort of your own home.
Hulu Pride. The streaming channel is offering a nice selection of LGBTQ television classics (like Ellen and Will and Grace) plus current shows (The Bold Type and Handmaid’s Tale) and movies for the LGBTQ crowd. If you have a subscription, you can watch to your heart’s content. If you don’t have Hulu yet, they are offering a free 30 day trial.
Pick up some lesbian fiction. Bella has hundreds of books that feature lesbians and queer women, with romances to get lost in and mysteries to get your pulse racing. Bella also distributes over thirty publishers from Bold Strokes to YLVA. Right now over 30 Bella novels are on sale for up to 50% off.
Get your brew on with some Pride beer. Pick up a six pack of Fremont Brewing Pride Kolsh, a refreshing brew with a refreshing mission. This beer is brewed for Pride month and benefits local Seattle LGBTQ organizations.
Whip up some delectable rainbow Pride dishes. Do you like to cook and bake? Then celebrate pride in your own kitchen with these rainbow recipes. Surprise friends and neighbors with these treats and let your pride shine.
Virtually volunteer. There are hundreds of non-profit LGBTQ organizations that could use a helping hand, and many of them could use your skills remotely. Check out sites like www.volunteermatch.org, or contact your favorite organizations and see where you could lend a hand.
