For each of the first one-hundred coming out stories submitted, ABSOLUT will donate 100 Euros to InterPride - The International Association of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and other sexual identities - to support their worldwide networking, education and mutual support of member LGBT Pride Organizations.
