Celebrate LGBTQ Global Pride Online

By Charlotte Robinson, April 01, 2020
Pride organizations worldwide have come together to organize a ‘Global Pride’ event planned for Saturday June 27th in response to the hundreds of LGBTQ Pride celebrations cancelled or postponed because of the COVID-19 pandemic. Global Pride will use online platforms to deliver a Pride celebration that will include musical performances, speeches & key messages from human rights activists. The event will be live-streamed & people will be invited to join in the event from home. InterPride & the European Pride Organisers Association are working with national organizations in Canada, Germany, Sweden, UK & the USA including regional networks in southern Africa, Asia, Oceania & Latin America to bring communities & Pride organizations together for this Global Pride event. J. Andrew Baker, Co-President of Interpride stated, “We need community & connection more than ever. This gives us an opportunity to both connect & celebrate the LGBTQIA+ community’s resilience in the face of this pandemic & the true spirit of Pride. Pride 2020 represents a milestone for Pride events, with many honoring the 50th anniversary of their first gatherings and marches, such as New York to the first Gandhinagar Pride this year & we would not let that pass without recognition & celebration.” Kristine Garina, President of the European Pride Organisers Association & Chair of Baltic Pride in Riga, Latvia added, “The unprecedented challenges of COVID-19 mean that most Prides will not take place as planned in 2020, but we’re determined that this won’t stop us from coming together as a united, strong LGBTQIA+ community to celebrate who we are & what we stand for.” This is a fabulous opportunity for our community & allies to come together in these challenging times for a universal reboot online in our fight for global LGBTQ equality.
