Here are 3 LGBT businesses you should support in Mexico City.
Papa Guapa Restaurant
Papa Guapa is owned by Karmabeat’s own Luis Barba and his partner Miguel Morales. This one of a kind restaurant features the baked potato as the star ingredient on its menu. The dishes are named after female icons such as the Papa Bardot (stuffed with mushrooms, bacon and melted cheese). Another popular plate is the Papa Monroe (stuffed with shrimp and cheese).
The restaurant decor is reminiscent of an American 1950’s diner complete with the booths, jukeboxes and waitresses in their fabulous 50’s outfits. Located in the ever hip neighborhood of La Condesa, make sure to give this restaurant a try for a fun and relaxed atmosphere.
Sugarox Candy Studio is a gay-owned and operated business that makes candy so beautiful its hard not to eat, even if you don’t have a sweet tooth! With over 40 original flavors, they are constantly coming up with new creations to take candy to a whole new level, including making candy rings (for all sizes and uses).
The couple behind the brand, Jack and Declan, are active members of the gay community. They firmly believe it is important to help sweeten the work of non-profit organizations and events such as Gay Pride and World Aids Day by making special edition candy to help raise funds and awareness. They also love being able to make personalized candy for gay weddings and events.
