While we love to get behind almost any campaign that supports Pride and/or local businesses, with annual initiatives like Shake, Stir and Strainbow! and Sashay, Fillet!, it's safe to say that we have a certain affinity for creative campaigns.

With that in mind, we recently came across a one-of-a-kind initiative from Tailgunner Brewing Company taking place during Calgary Pride that we would be remiss not to share. 

To commemorate the first weekend of Calgary Pride since its Kensington taproom opened in April, Tailgunner has put together a Calgary Pride Coupon Book that offers deals and discounts from local businesses that are either queer-owned or are known for supporting 2SLGBTQ+ initiatives. 

Some of the food and beverage businesses include Broken City, Ten Foot Henry, Kaffeeklatsch, Eighty-Eight Brewing Company, and many more, along with an eclectic assortment of local creatives like Good Friend Tattoo, Annie Hansen, and Little Rainbow Paper Co. 

The Coupon Books are available to purchase at Tailgunner Brewing Company and Kaffeeklatsch. All proceeds from each Coupon Book sold will be donated directly to the Centre for Sexuality.
