8 Vegan Things to Eat and Buy to Show Your PRIDE

PRIDE is colorful. PRIDE is fun. PRIDE is a celebration—but it’s more than just rainbows. While the items below focus on the literal sunshine and rainbows of PRIDE, we acknowledge that this month is about something far more important than promotional stuff. These products give back because there are still people who do not feel safe being who they are, and that’s not okay. So here’s to celebrating PRIDE—not just until LGBTQ+ individuals are universally accepted, but for years and years to come.

1. Brew Dr. Kombucha

For the third year in a row, Brew Dr. is donating to The Trevor Project. The rainbow-wrapped bottles can be found anywhere you typically purchase your Brew Dr. (see the store locator—from liquor stores to gas stations, they’re everywhere). The specialized brew is the brand’s iconic Love flavor reincarnated with flavors of lavender, chamomile, and jasmine green tea.

2. Root Nine Pride cookies

When you can’t decide between a sugar cookie or chocolate chip cookie, this rainbow tie-dye cookie lets you have both. The PRIDE-themed treat features a soft and colorful sugar cookie exterior stuffed with gooey chocolate chip cookie dough. Not only does it look pretty, 5 percent of the proceeds will benefit the It Gets Better Project. Order a six-pack or add a few to a build-your-own box.

3. HipCityVeg milkshake

According to this Philly-based vegan eatery, you can never have enough sprinkles. The restaurant’s new Love milkshake is doused with rainbow gummies and finished with a paper rainbow straw. Ten percent of the shake’s proceeds will be donated to various LGBTQ+ organizations including the William Way Center, SMYAL, and Whitman-Walker.

4. The Karma Baker cake and cookie sandwiches

This bakery is transforming cookies into donations. All proceeds from Karma Baker’s fudge-filled chocolate chip sandwich cookies and vanilla rainbow cake will be donated to The Trevor project for the month of June. That’s right—not 5 percent, not 10 percent, but 100 percent. If you’re thinking of donating to an LGBTQ+ organization this month, might as well support small vegan business and get something sweet all in one powerful transaction.
