Pride in the Pines: A Guide to Celebrating Yourself in Nature

Nature is for everyone — A sanctuary where all can find peace and belonging.

This Pride Month, we’re proud to reaffirm our commitment to being an inclusive, safe space for the LGBTQ2S community to celebrate and connect with the great outdoors.

Celebrating Pride in Nature’s Embrace

Pride Month is a time for self-celebration, reflection, and community. What better way to honor this special time than by escaping to nature? Here’s why a getaway to the wilderness can be a perfect way to celebrate Pride.

Inclusivity and Acceptance
The great outdoors is an inherently inclusive space where everyone can feel accepted and celebrated. In nature, there’s a sense of belonging that transcends societal boundaries. The natural world doesn’t judge; it simply exists, providing a serene backdrop where you can be unapologetically yourself.

Adventure and Exploration
For those who crave adventure, nature offers endless opportunities. Whether you’re hiking along scenic trails, exploring hidden waterfalls, or simply wandering through the woods, each experience is a reminder of the beauty and resilience of the natural world. These adventures can mirror the personal journey many undergo during Pride, symbolizing exploration, growth, and discovery.

Physical and Mental Wellness
Spending time in nature is known to have numerous physical and mental health benefits. The fresh air, physical activity, and disconnect from digital distractions all contribute to improved mental clarity and reduced stress. Engaging with nature can boost your mood, enhance creativity, and provide a sense of calm and well-being.

Community and Connection
Celebrating Pride in nature doesn’t have to be a solitary experience. Whether you’re with friends, family, or a partner, the shared experience of exploring the outdoors can strengthen bonds and create lasting memories. Group hikes, picnics by the lake, or evenings by the campfire foster a sense of community and collective celebration.

Rediscover the joy of being you, embraced by the beauty and inclusivity of the great outdoors. This Pride Month, consider trading the urban noise for the serene sounds of nature, and celebrate in a space that honors your unique journey.

Why not turn the festivities up a notch? Imagine savoring a refreshing Pride-themed mocktail while relaxing on the dock, adding a splash of color and flavor to your serene surroundings. Here’s a vibrant and delicious recipe for a Rainbow Refresher mocktail that embodies the spirit of inclusivity and joy.

Rainbow Refresher Mocktail

1 cup red fruit juice (like cranberry or pomegranate)
1 cup orange juice
1 cup pineapple juice
1 cup green apple juice
1 cup blue sports drink (like blue Gatorade)
Ice cubes
Fruit slices for garnish (optional)


Fill a tall glass with ice cubes, which will help to layer the drinks.

Pour the red fruit juice slowly over the ice cubes.
Next, gently pour the orange juice over the back of a spoon to create a second layer.
Repeat the process with the pineapple juice, followed by the green apple juice, and finally the blue sports drink, pouring each layer over the back of a spoon to prevent mixing.

Add fruit slices on the rim of the glass or inside the drink for an extra festive touch.
