McDonald’s is celebrating Pride with the LGBT community by selling limited edition rainbow fry boxes at locations following the Capital Pride Parade route from June 9 through June 11.

WTOP reports the boxes will be sold while supplies last at the 1944 14th Street N.W., 1619 17th Street N.W. and 1916 M Street N.W. locations.

“The rainbow fry boxes are a fun way to show our support of the LGBTQ community using one of McDonald’s most iconic and recognizable items; however, these fry boxes are ‘small potatoes’ in the grand scheme of our commitment to this community,” Cathy Martin, co-chair of the McDonald’s PRIDE Network and vice president/general manager of McDonald’s Baltimore-Washington Region, said in a statement.  “We are proud to honor and celebrate the LGBTQ community, including our employees, customers and beyond, each and every day.”

The fast food chain will also have a float in the Capital Pride Parade on June 10 from 4:30-7:30 p.m.
