Fighting for acceptance with Harvey milk

STOLI® VODKA CELEBRATES ANOTHER YEAR OF PARTNERSHIP WITH THE HARVEY MILK FOUNDATION

May 17, 2021

Stoli® Vodka proudly announces a worldwide partnership with The Harvey Milk Foundation. ‘’The Harvey Milk Foundation is excited to see our long term partnership with Stoli Vodka going global this year”, said Miriam Richter, Harvey Milk Foundation Education Director and Counsel “The 2021 HMF/Stoli collaboration is a message to people all over the globe that visibility is vital and that hope cannot be silenced, not just LGBTQ+ people, but for ALL people”.

Established by Harvey Milk’s nephew, Stuart Milk, and his campaign manager, Anne Kronenberg, the Harvey Milk Foundation works around the globe to empower and support LGBTQ+ voices and communities. Keeping with Harvey Milk’s values and vision for the future, the Harvey Milk Foundation works for a diverse world where everyone is free to be their authentic selves.

Stoli® Vodka and The Harvey Milk Foundation launched together this year a Stoli® Harvey Milk Global Limited Edition Collector’s Bottle, featuring art from Paraguayan artist Oz Montania. Stoli has worked with The Harvey Milk Foundation in this capacity before, having launched the first Harvey Milk Bottle in 2018, commemorating the 40th anniversary of Harvey Milk taking office in 1978 as the first openly gay elected official in California.

After a successful first launch in 2018, the new Global Collector’s Edition Bottle will feature the art of Oz Montania on individually numbered bottles of Stolichnaya® premium vodka.

“As a company recommitting itself as a true global organization devoted to sustainable equality, there could be no better partner for the first true Stoli® Global LGBTQ+ Limited Edition than The Harvey Milk Foundation” said Kathryn Walters, Global Brand Leader for Stoli®. “Harvey Milk’s legacy and spirit and The Harvey Milk Foundation’s unparalleled work around the globe transcend borders and uplift the Stoli® promise to liberate authentic voices in pursuit of a better world.”

As a global effort, the 2021 The Harvey Milk Foundation /Stoli collaboration is a way to remind the world that despite the necessary changes to the way Pride is celebrated this year, the spirit of Pride remains strong and while we gather virtually for the most part, we can make the most of it together.

Stoli Harvey Milk Global Collector’s Edition bottle is available at leading spirit retailers globally and in the USA at www.reservebar.com .
