Pride Month (2020)
UPDATE: This badge and its criteria have been updated as of June 17th, 2020. Please refer to this post for more information.
Pride Month is here again and we are excited to recognize, celebrate, and give voice to the LGBTQIA+ members of our community!
Pride is a time to reflect on the adversity that the LGBTQIA+ community has and continues to endure and overcome. It is a celebration of love and acceptance. It is a powerful reminder that although we all face difficulties, some have suffered more than others, and we must come together to fight injustice and support our friends, family, coworkers, and drinking buddies.
At Untappd, we value diversity and uphold it as one of our core values: "We respect the individuals we work with and embrace differing perspectives. We collaborate effectively with people of diverse backgrounds and cultures to make better decisions." We recognize that diversity makes us stronger, and all voices need to be heard.
We want to hear how beer has brought you together this Pride Month. Share your Pride brews, your local brewery's Pride campaign, your experience as an LGBTQIA+ individual in the industry, or anything else you want us to see this Pride Month. Post on social media using the hashtag, #DrinkProudly2020 so we can discover your story and celebrate virtually together. We may even feature your story and photos on our platforms!
We want to listen to these voices and share them with others. This year, as we release our Pride badge, stickers, and toast icon, we encourage you to join the cause and share your story. We hope everyone has a wonderful Pride Month and encourage all to continue making the craft beer community a safe and inclusive space for LGBTQIA+ people around the world.
To join the cause this year check the App Store or Google Play to make sure your app is up to date and the next time you load the app on the Discover screen you'll see the Pride Month 2020 banner, tap on More Info and choose to join the cause with us! By joining the cause you will receive the "Pride Month (2020)" badge by checking in to any beer between June 1, 2020 - June 30, 2020. For the entire month of June when you toast a check-in the glass on the toast icon will fill with the pride flag and you can decorate your check-in photos with our pride sticker pack!
Cheers to living openly, loving proudly, and embracing diversity!
