Bud Light Donates $200,000 To National LGBT Chamber Of Commerce After Dylan Mulvaney Backlash

On May 30, Bud Light and the National LGBT Chamber of Commerce (NGLCC) announced they are extending their partnership to further support the advancements of LGBTQ+ businesses across the United States. Bud Light will donate $200,000 to the NGLCC in support of its Communities of Color Initiative (CoCi), an initiative that aims to aid the growth and success of minority LGBTQ+-owned businesses through several areas, such as certification, scholarships, and business development. The winning minority LGBTQ+ business owner will receive $5,000 and have the chance to go on to compete at the 2023 NGLCC International Business & Leadership Conference LGBT Biz Pitch Competition for $50,000 in cash and prizes. The beer brand has come under fire in recent months after it collaborated with trans influencer Dylan Mulvaney and gifted her a single can of beer with her face on it. The backlash saw the sales of the beer dip and billions wiped from Anheuser-Busch’s market share, with two bosses who approved the Mulvaney partnership reportedly suspended from the business. The partnership sparked protests and backlash and parent company Anheuser-Busch has shed $26 billion in value in mere months.
