Alec Mapa

Come celebrate this year’s PRIDE live with THE LAVENDER EFFECT® Star-studded Live Virtual Pride Parade which will be broadcast on Sunday, May 30, 2021 at 12 noon PST/3p EST via  YouTube.com/c/TheLavenderEffect.

The Virtual Pride Parade will launch Pride Month and benefit THE LAVENDER EFFECT’s mission to Advance the Future of LGBTQ+ Heritage & Culture. While many local Pride celebrations again are being canceled or modified this year due to the continuing COVID-19 pandemic, many members of the community will not be able to gather in person, so this live virtual event will safely bring the LGBTQ+ community together from across the nation to celebrate Pride.

 This year marks the 51st Anniversary of the first PRIDE marches across the nation in June 1970, commemorating the anniversary of the Stonewall uprising, and protesting for LGBTQ+ equality.

Confirmed celebrities include: Alec Mapa (Event Host), Lily Tomlin, Betty Buckley, Kathryn Hahn, Sally Kirkland, Alexandra Billings, Doug Spearman, Bruce Vilanch, Charles Busch, Drew Droege, Jason Stuart, Michael Musto, Kay Sedia, Mel England and Miss Barbie Q.

The event will be broadcast on Sunday, May 30, 2021 at 12 noon PST/3p EST via  YouTube.com/c/TheLavenderEffect.
