Live-stream event to show resilience and determination of the LGBTQIA+ Pride movement
National and international Pride organizations have announced a Global Pride live-stream event scheduled for Saturday, June 27, 2020, in response to the hundreds of Pride celebrations around the world that have been canceled or postponed because of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Global Pride will use online platforms to deliver a Pride in which everyone can participate, wherever they are. The virtual event will feature musical performances, speeches, and key messages from human rights activists.
International Association of Pride Organizers (InterPride) and the European Pride Organizers Association (EPOA)—the world’s biggest international Pride networks—are working with national organizations in Canada, Germany, Sweden, the United Kingdom, and the United States of America, and regional networks in southern Africa, Asia, Oceania, and Latin America, to bring communities and Pride organizations together for this Global Pride event.
“We need community and connection more than ever,” said
J. Andrew Baker, co-president of InterPride. “This gives us an opportunity to both connect and celebrate the LGBTQIA+ community’s resilience in the face of this pandemic and the true spirit of Pride.”
