• The Stonewall Inn is boycotting Anheuser-Busch. Anheuser-Busch is appropriating pride in its advertising and sponsorships but made donations totaling $35,350 to 29 anti-LGBTQ legislators behind recent bills attacking trans youth. Find out more about it at KeepYourPride.org. (Melissa Kravitz Hoeffner for Eater)

• Photos: The 29th Annual Dyke March. This year's theme was "Black Dyke Power." (Amanda Hatfield for BrooklynVegan)

• Interview: A fascinating interview with NYPD Dermot Shea that does not shy away from George Floyd, defunding the police, reforms, the power of police unions, and more. (Jami Floyd for Gothamist)

• Manhattan prosecutors have informed Donald Trump's company that it could soon face criminal charges stemming from a long-running investigation into the former president's business dealings. Booyah. (Adam Nichols for Patch)

• The fight between New York state and the NRA continues on as the NRA has been using every possible tactic to wriggle out of the suit to no avail (so far). (Nick Reisman for NY1)

• Attorney General Letitia James's office hasn't been solely focused on the NRA. Johnson & Johnson will pay New York State more than $230 million in a settlement that also ensures the company will permanently get out of the opioid business in the US. The money will be used for mitigating future harm, education, and addiction treatment. (Sarah Maslin Nir for NY Times)

• Curbed checks in on the co-living industry post-pandemic and discovers that it's not surviving, it's flourishing. (Kem Velsey for Curbed)

• Cockapoos are the city's top trending dog breed according to Rover, followed by the Havanese. We're pretty sure that The Briefly's EVP of chasing tennis balls is a cockapoo, but he's a rescue so he's listed as a mutt. (Matt Troutman for Patch)

Featured Pet: The Jetskiing Pitbull

Thanks to Michael for sending in this photo of his neighbor’s pitbull, whom I’ve nicknamed “Shades” in my mind, who loves her rides on the jet ski and she cries if he goes out without her on it. Send in your pet photos to thebriefly@gmail.com.
