Budweiser’s no bud of theirs.

If you’re unfamiliar with the Stonewall Inn, it’s a famed gay bar in Manhattan.

The Greenwich Village tavern was the location of 1969’s Stonewall riots, considered to be a seminal moment in the fight for homosexual liberation.

And due to shady circumstances, a liquid’s getting liberated — the establishment’s bouncing products by Anheuser-Busch.

So if you want a Busch beer, so far as the establishment’s concerned, you’ll have to head for the mountains.

And why?

As reported by The Hill, it’s related to June being Pride Month.

It turns out the alcohol producer’s pushed cash to politicians allegedly opposed to the LGBTQ cause.

In the words of the outlet, per data from the Keep Your Pride Campaign, “Since 2015, Anheuser-Busch has donated $35,350 to anti-LGBTQ legislators.”

Over six years, that’s a drop in the bucket — Forbes indicates that, as of May, the Belgium biggie boasted a market cap of over $134 billion.

The beverage behemoth’s contributions were to congresspeople in Florida, Tennessee, and Mississippi.

In a statement, Stonewall Inn co-owner Kurt Kelly stumped for the Equality Act and stomped on Anheuser-Busch:

“We’re horrified to see so-called allies supporting lawmakers who would make life harder for anyone in our community. We urge [the company] and [others] doing this to publicly commit to stop donating to anti-LGBTQ politicians and use their lobbying power to support the Equality Act.”

Meanwhile, Pride Month seems to be getting more attention than ever.

As I wrote previously, I ordered a pizza last week, and the box bore an LGBT sticker.
