As we approach Pride month, many individuals and brands are taking strides to raise awareness for and give back to the LGBTQIA+ – especially in the face of political attacks against the community. In a noteworthy act, Native, the personal care brand, is donating $50,000 to The Trevor Project in an effort to send a powerful and unified message of love, hope, and support.
In addition, on June 6th, Native will be sponsoring a livestream on Instagram with actress and comedian, Dylan Mulvaney, and supporting an influencer campaign on TikTok titled, “Take Pride in Who You Are.” Dylan will discuss how she’s celebrating Pride, how the significance of Pride has changed for her over the years, and products that have helped her feel her best throughout her girlhood journey.
A recent donation to the LGBTQIA+ community, as revealed today, includes that of Kiva Confections, which continues the flow of love and support to a community that finds itself in the crosshairs of heightened political attacks today. As Pride kicks off, keep an eye out for rallying events and safe spaces, like Dylan’s Instagram Live to learn more and add your own support.

Chamberlain Coffee x Craig’s
Bet you didn’t think you’d find ice cream on this list, but here we are. It’s going to be hot this summer, and you’ll wish you had something this delicious and refreshing in your life – so thank us later!
On June 13th, Emma Chamberlain’s Gen Z coffee brand, Chamberlain Coffee, and LA’s favorite restaurant, Craig’s, will be partnering up yet again to launch their brand new ice cream flavor — vegan coffee.
This collab isn’t the two brands first rodeo, as they recently teased the flavor launch last month at Coachella with their pop-up cart, as well as last summer when they were spotted in an ice cream truck pop-up on Melrose Ave in LA. The delicious, cashew-based ice cream is made with organic Chamberlain Coffee beans and is the perfect treat to cool down with this summer on a hot day when you’re craving that coffee taste in refreshing, dessert form.

What’s a dad without a cold beer? A sad one.
In what could be the most innovative creation since the traditional cooler, the Coolin Curve provides a new, problem-solving twist (or curve) to how bubbly bottled drinks, or just drinks in general, get cooled. Made in the USA, by inventor Mike Martin, the Coolin Curve is the only curved bottom ice bucket — effectively eliminating the age-old struggle of getting bottles into the ice bucket. The unique shape makes inserting drinks of any kind into ice a breezy snap.
Other benefits of Coolin Curve include:
- Sweat resistant
- Compatible with wine, champagne, beer, or any other bottled product.
- A percentage of proceeds go toward helping those struggling with cancer.
Not to mention, the Coolin Curve is a fancy piece of hardware that elevates the “cooler aesthetic,” while also available in a range of colors to suit whatever occasion you’ve got planned. Beer, wine, sodas, and even water have never looked better on ice.
The Coolin Curve is available for $39.99 at www.coolincurve.com
, and is also available on Amazon.

It’s that time of year when summer begins to kick in and Pride is celebrated across the country, and it’s only fitting the leading cannabis edibles brand helps welcome the festivities with some amazing support for the LGBTQIA+ Community.
Kiva Confections, the market leader in cannabis edibles, is celebrating Pride month with the launch of the fifth annual release of the Camino ‘Proud’ Gummy and a $100,000 donation to support the LGBTQIA+ community. The much-anticipated ‘Proud’ Gummy features reimagined packaging and a brand new Passionfruit Punch flavor with limonene and linalool terpenes for a tailored, exhilarating experience.
The donation – the brand’s largest to – will be allocated across four beneficiaries in support of the LGBTQIA+ community, with an emphasis on championing the transgender, nonbinary, and gender-expansive people who are in most need of greater access to essential care. These organizations include:
Originally pioneered in 2018 by Kiva’s lead product developer to pay homage to her LGBTQIA+ community, the beloved and best-selling Camino ‘Proud’ shimmer dusted gummy is dosed at 5 mg of THC per piece, with a total of 100 mg of THC per package. While previous year’s of Camino Proud packaging focused on the celebratory aspects of Pride and the LGBTQIA+ community’s legacy of marches, parades, and protests, this year Kiva has chosen to feature a Bay Area landmark, The Pink Triangle. Since 1996, this symbol has been erected during Pride weekend atop San Francisco’s Twin Peaks. The Pink Triangle brings attention to the past persecution of those in the LGBTQIA+ community and reminds us to ensure that it never happens again.
The limited-edition, iridescent gummies are designed to rally spirits and help individuals stand passionately proud this summer. The Passionfruit Punch Camino will be available for a limited time at select California dispensaries and via Kiva Direct beginning May 20th for $20.
