June is Pride month, a time to focus on celebrating visibility, diversity and love in all forms. Since its inception in the wake of the 1969 Stonewall riots, many use this time to stand together, honor identities and create safe spaces for the LGBTQIA+ community.
Whether you’re attending a celebration or hosting a community gathering to commemorate this month, we know that providing wholesome foods can enrich these gatherings. We hope these tasty recipes make your loved ones feel welcomed, joyful and nourished as we keep uplifting voices and educating each other about Pride history.
