Young’s Market Company is proud to partner with suppliers that share our values. In celebration of PRIDE month, we’re featuring some brands that are avid supporters of the LGTBQ community.
2018 marks the fourth year Ménage à Trois will be the official wine of San Francisco Pride. The Ménage à Trois “Love the One You’re With” campaign will be prominent throughout the parade, and the wine will be available at the wine and beer garden at San Francisco’s Civic Center Park.
“We are excited to be a part of this legendary event. As a company that has been in the Bay area for over 70 years – and brand that was built by taking a risk – we think this is the perfect pairing,” noted Mark Dunlea, Ménage à Trois’ Senior Marketing Director. “We are looking forward to participating in the parade and celebrating in the city that helped establish Ménage à Trois.”
Jack Daniel’s Country Cocktails is debuting the world’s first-ever projection mapping show truck, titled #flavorsofpride, at the LA Pride Festival in West Hollywood on June 9 and 10. The art project will feature a 3-minute video show that celebrates the LGBTQ community’s increasing diversity across genders, ethnicities, sexualities, religions and generations.
“We’re honored to have Jack Daniel’s as an official sponsor of 2018 LA Pride and be the site of their #flavorsofpride launch,” said Estevan Montemayor, CSW/LA Pride Board President. “Both their sponsorship and their show truck will enhance this year’s LA Pride Festival which features a diverse array of musical artists, including a number of gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender performers across three stages.”
Supporting the LGBTQ community is a year-round effort at Tito’s, but since June is National Pride Month, they step things up a notch. From Friday, June 8 through Sunday, June 10, Tito’s is donating $5 to The Elizabeth Taylor AIDS Foundation for every bottle of Tito’s sold through the alcohol delivery app, Saucey, up to $5,000. Since The Elizabeth Taylor AIDS Foundation’s operating costs are paid through Ms. Taylor’s Trust, every penny donated goes directly to helping those affected by HIV/AIDS.
