The month of June is recognised worldwide as LGBT Pride Month. This month is celebrated in honour of the 1969 Stonewall Riots, as well as the numerous LGBT+ heroes who have helped change perceptions and fight for equality for all people over the past 40 years. Pride Month is about recognising the positive contributions that LGBT+ people have to offer through their message of inclusion, diversity and acceptance. Pride Month also acknowledges the many challenges LGBT+ people still face today, against discrimination and unjust persecution. The month is ultimately about championing gay rights while celebrating the hard-won gains already made.
In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, Pride Month events have been cancelled around the globe. However, this does not mean that the community won't be celebrating. There are many ways to let your flag fly high this Pride Month without leaving the safety of your home. Whether you choose to host a virtual party or donate to organisations who foster vulnerable LGBT+ youth, Pride Month 2020 looks to be one for the books.
Thanks to Paul's Homemade Ice Cream, Pride Month just got a whole lot sweeter. In honour of the occasion, your favourite local ice cream connoisseurs have introduced a brand-new flavour. The Rainbow French Vanilla Cake scoop is a delightful mish-mash of colours, celebrating the multifaceted identities of the LGBT+ community. This special scoop is made by colouring and carefully layering each colour. The end result is an ice cream that boasts even, vibrant shades of red, orange, yellow, green, blue and indigo. But that's not all! The ice cream is then infused with French Vanilla Cake - a sweet, creamy, heart-warming cake flavour with strong notes of aromatic vanilla. We can't imagine any better sweet treat to celebrate LGBT Pride Month with than this.
