Unlike in previous years, 2024’s Pride Month didn’t see the usual swarm of drinks brands embrace it with their marketing campaigns. After last year’s Bud Light fiasco, perhaps they’re simply too afraid to embrace LGBTQ-centric ad campaigns.

On this episode of the “VinePair Podcast,” Adam, Joanna, and Zach bemoan the fact that last year’s right-wing boycott of Bud Light has scared drinks brands off from outwardly supporting the LGBTQ+ community during Pride Month.
