Taco Bell is launching a one-of-a-kind fan experience, Taco Bell Drag Brunch, a multi-city tour to celebrate the LGBT community and drag culture during Pride Month.
The events will feature saucy performances from local queens and kings that will “transform any morning [or brunch] from mild to fire.” Hosted by legendary drag performer Kay Sedia, the party will highlight Taco Bell’s breakfast menu items, including the new $5 Bell Breakfast Box and Cinnabon Delights® Coffee, mimosas and more.
The tour stops at the Taco Bell Cantina at Beach Place on Fort Lauderdale Beach on Sunday, June 26. The concept was suggested by members of Live Mas Pride, Taco Bell's LGBT employee resource group, which was launched in 2020 and now includes over 100 employees. Proceeds benefit the It Gets Better Project.
Reservations are available on OpenTable.com.
Tour the Stonewall National Museum
Florida Atlantic University will host a free Pride Month tour of the Stonewall National Museum & Archives (SNMA) in Fort Lauderdale on Friday, June 3 at 11 a.m. Executive Director Hunter O’Hanian will lead the tour and describe how the collection developed and grew to contain over 27,000 books in the library and more than six million pages of LGBT history from the 1950s to the present day in the archives. O’Hanian might even pull out RuPaul’s bathrobe or Ricky Martin’s leather pants.
