Stoli Hearts Queers, Giving Queers Money
Stoli is giving $300,000 to the Los Angeles Gay & Lesbian Center’s Leadership LAB (Learn, Act, Build) Program. Here’s to hoping the next generation of LGBT leaders like vodka pineapples.
“Because we at Stoli – and all corporations that support equality – have a responsibility to help make a difference, we have been working with our long-standing partners in the LGBT community to evaluate opportunities to make a significant and strategic investment in the global future of the LGBT movement,” Esposito wrote in The Advocate. “And that’s why we have decided to partner with the L.A. Gay & Lesbian Center by pledging $300,000 over the next three years to support a program that stands out for its potential to narrow this divide: its Leadership LAB initiative.”
