During Pride Month, several Philadelphia bars are selling colorful drinks as part of Cocktails for a Cause; $1 from each drink sold will be donated to LGBT organizations.

This Pride Month, people can support LGBTQ organizations by tasting the rainbow at numerous bars in Philadelphia and its suburbs. 

Cocktails for a Cause, an annual fundraiser hosted by FCM Hospitality, returns this June with a lineup of speciality cocktails that each represent a color on the LGBTQ+ flag. For each drink sold, $1 will be donated to the William Way LGBT Center and The Attic Youth Center, two nonprofits that support the city's queer communities.
