(SPOT.ph) June is Pride Month, which is more than just a month given its radical history and what it means for LGBTQ+ folks today. The community still faces challenges and discrimination on many levels, from individual to societal, that ought to be given more awareness of—and it’s only right that its members get the platform and opportunity to celebrate who they are and who they love. Make no mistake: there’s way more to Pride Month than just buying rainbow items and calling it a day. There is no sub for real systemic change—but if you’re looking to celebrate on a scrumptious note, or at least make the fight for what's right a tasty one, these Pride-Month specials and other colorful eats have got you covered.

This is sold as part of their Pride Sampler Box (P550), which has two of the rainbow croissants plus two Classic Butter Croissants, one Pain au Chocolat, and one Kouign Amann.
