In the Second World War, the military began a longstanding discriminatory policy of dishonorably discharging suspected lesbians and gay men solely on the basis of homosexuality.
Despite this ever-present threat, the armed forces have also been an important and vibrant queer space both on-base and off. Connections forged in these sex-segregated spaces have been foundational to the development of modern gay and lesbian cultures in the long struggle against homophobic policies in the military. Take the weekend off with this medium and dark roasted blend!
Ahh, Gay Coffee, you say…?
That’s right people: it’s coffee, and it’s gay!
First, we find the highest quality fair trade, organic coffee in the world. Then, it’s lovingly roasted, in small batches, by hand – by gays! But that’s not all. At Gay Coffee, we take some stereotypes and themes we all recognize, we own them and have fun with them, and then we throw in a splash of our collective cultural and civil rights history. The result is the fusion of fabulous coffee and our unique legacy.
Gay owned and operated, we strive to make a unique product that is as delicious as it is informative and super fun, and a percentage of all profits from Gay Coffee will benefit the National Gay and Lesbian Task Force.
