It’s all aboard Southern Comfort’s Pride boat party, teaming up with Sink The Pink, the UK’s largest LGBTQ+ collective and club night. Southern Comfort, the unique spirit of New Orleans, is proudly supporting Pride in London’s Unity Fund with a fun-filled celebration on London’s iconic River Thames on Saturday 11th, 2021.
The announcement comes as part of a wider commitment to drive positive change in the lives of London’s LGBTQ+ communities, as Southern Comfort is pledging to donate £1 from every Southern Comfort limited edition Pride bottle sold, available nationwide in selected Grocery stores, to The Unity Fund – an initiative created by ‘Pride in London’ to provide funding to grassroots organisations who address the needs of the UK’s LGBTQ+ community.
Hosted on a vintage Mississippi paddle steamer boat, the floating Pride party promises to be an immersive celebration of self-expression and togetherness, with a two-hour cruise along the Thames packed with music, food and drink inspired by Southern Comfort’s vibrant hometown of New Orleans, a city like no other, where everyone is welcome and where Pride thrives year-round.
Setting sail at 11:30 am, the event will be the perfect way for London partygoers to celebrate Pride. Onboard, fun-loving guests will journey through the heart of the capital whilst dancing away to DJ sets from Melanie Blatt, Mark-Ashley Dupé and Raven Mandella. There will also be performances from London’s finest Voguing crews and Drag Queens from Sink The Pink – the LGTBQ+ collective known for continuously challenging the status quo around nightlife and celebrating freedom of self-expression.
Fuelling the fun will be an irresistible array of Southern Comfort cocktails, including the slushie favourites – ‘Southern Passion’ and ‘Sour Cherry.’ In addition, an authentic New Orleans-inspired food menu will be served throughout the experience, including fried chicken, mac & cheese and vegan Cajun gumbo.
