What does it take to make an irresistible cocktail and an uplifting pride anthem that illustrates fierce LGBTQ+ empowerment in the midst of a year full of challenges? It takes a village, to say the least.
In this exclusive Out100 interview, Out editor in chief David Artavia gets all of the tea from Stoli and some of their noteworthy voices, including Stoli Ambassador extraordinaire Patrik Gallineaux, Billboard chart-topping recording artist Debby Holiday, and Out100 honoree, bartender, and activist Joe Lewis, who is also known by his drag persona, Jo Mama. The trio chat with Out about how they each Serve Pride through their work, always focusing on community impact and making sure it is a top priority—especially when it’s with a zesty and flavorful cocktail. Lewis even spills one of his favorite recipes for the “Perfect Pear,” made with the exclusive Stoli “Spirit of Stonewall” bottle which commemorates the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall Uprising and supports the Stonewall Inn Gives Back Initiative.
But that’s not all these three are serving—here they are unveiling the new music video for “Stoli Serves Pride,” the upbeat and joyous siren song that has kept the Stoli community together these past months. “‘Stoli Serves Pride’ really became an anthem for survival,” says Gallineaux, “and when we sat down and thought about doing a video…it became so clear that the energy and momentum of all we have created these past few years has created this community that is so not just ‘we’re celebrating’—but we are celebrating beyond 2020 and years to come.”
