Published Jun 28, 2024 2:30 pm

McDonald's Philippines is painting the town (and its restaurants), with rainbow colors this Pride Month. Going beyond its iconic arches, McDonald’s is celebrating diversity and inclusivity with special meal deals, informative podcasts, and activations in various Pride events. Since 2021, Love Ko All has been the brand’s Pride platform which highlights that no matter who you are, you are welcome at McDonald’s.

Kicking off the celebration is the transformation of one of its flagship restaurants in the country, McDonald's McKinley West store's golden arches into rainbow arches, a symbol of Pride and acceptance. Underscoring the path towards inclusivity are also the MBrace Lanes at participating stores in Tagaytay Delos Reyes, Quezon Avenue Ligaya, and California Garden Square. Take a snap and share it on social using the #LoveKoAll.
