This Pride, supporting the LGBTQ+ community is more important than ever – many are experiencing adverse effects from this situation, with recent reports citing that many people within this community do not feel safe within their homes. 

To help give back this year and empower Canadians to rally for a better tomorrow, SodaStream is hosting a Virtual Drag Brunch fundraiser with Toronto Drag Queens, Miss Fiercalicious and Sofonda Cox, to kick off both Pride month and the launch of their “For The Love Of Tomorrow” Pride Kits. 

When Canadians purchase this kit they will be giving back twice. Firstly, to Pflag Canada, Canada’s only national organization that offers peer-to-peer support to help with issues of sexual orientation, gender identity and gender expression, which will receive all sales profits.  Secondly, to our one and only planet, by going reusable and avoiding single-use plastic waste.

The colourful kit includes SodaStream’s newest 0.5L reusable bottle, a reusable bag and a reusable straw, in bright Pride colors and are available exclusively on

With SodaStream’s Virtual Drag Brunch, viewers can expect performances from the queens, their signature cocktails recipes and more!  Tune in on Sunday, June 7th at 11:00 on Instagram Live on @SodaStreamCanada
