With Orlando Pride finally here, what better way to celebrate love and tolerance than with a big, gay brunch – literally? The Big Gay Brunch happens in conjunction with Come Out with Pride 2018, an organization that supports the LGBTQ+ community with grants and scholarships. The brunch benefits Pride Gives Back, an initiative that, like its namesake suggests, gives back to smaller organizations such as the Barber Fund, Libby’s Legacy and more. Featuring a delicious brunch spread, bottomless mimosas, Tito’s Bloody Marys, a DJ and many more surprises, it’s a definite can’t-miss Pride event. Don’t miss the party before the parade – y’know, you gotta stay hydrated.

Saturday, Oct. 13 , noon-3 p.m. | The Abbey, 100 S. Eola Drive | 407-704-6103 | | $42-$50
