B Joyous

This weekend when you attend the various local LGBTQ Pride celebrations, your social media feeds will be filled with rainbows. As a group, we all have to pause and think about how powerful our gay flag is.

Many communities have symbols, but few have the kind of resonance of the rainbow, and the ability to bind a community in a joyful way.

It’s a wonderful choice for a symbol. It has such an inviting quality. What kind of person could hate a rainbow? Rather than create distance out of difference, it reaches out to bridge the divide. And for those who for too long were compelled to hide their identities, it does the opposite of camouflage — it creates a sanctuary that is vibrantly, beautifully visible.

Experience the joy of the LGBTQ community at Bacchus all weekend.

Stop by today and settle in for a wonderful afternoon and evening with $6 Tito’s (all day & night) and VJ Matt’s DIVAS night (10PM-close). There’s no cover, so what are you waiting for.

Hang out with the Bacchus staff along the parade route. We’ll be mixed in with the three groups we strongly support: The Aloha Bears, Hawaii Gay Kickball League, and the Hawaii Gay Flag Football League. Grab some of our B PROUD swag and make a plan to stop by the bar Saturday afternoon or evening. DJ Emvee spins from 10PM-close, and, as always, no cover charge.

Sunday, recover with us as we open early (7AM) for NFL games. A cool bloody mary or coffee cocktail will do the trick. Stay the afternoon and evening as we wind down after the joy of Friday and Saturday’s celebrations.

One last gasp of Pride happens at Bacchus on Monday night. Trivia Night starts at 7PM with the theme: LGBT Pride. Study up on your trivial facts and figures and come out to win prizes!

There’s lots of JOY to be discovered this weekend. B PROUD. B JOYOUS!
