Philly's favorite local doughnut spot, Federal Donuts, announced on social media Thursday it will be celebrating June, which is LGBT Pride Month, with a rainbow-speckled donut available each weekend of the month.
The creation, simply called The Pride Donut, will be available at Federal Donuts locations starting June 1. It's a vanilla cream-glazed donut, coated in rainbow nonpareils. It looks extremely festive, and extremely tasty:

According to Federal Donuts' official Instagram, a portion of The Pride Donut sales will be donated to the William Way LGBT Community Center, a Center City organization advocating for the well-being and acceptance of sexual and gender minorities in the area since the 1970s.
Notably, it appears this is the first time Federal Donuts has created a special themed donut for Pride Month.
The shops usually sell their "fancy donuts" – short for any doughnut outside of Cookies and Cream, Cinnamon Brown Sugar, and Strawberry Lavender, their three classics – for $2.75 each. The Pride Donut will likely fall under the fancy donuts classification, a small price to pay to support William Way and also eat a delightful doughnut.
