The unprecedented challenges created by COVID-19 mean that most pride celebrations, as we know them, will not take place as planned in 2020. However, we all know that our community is built stronger than that. Across the country and across the GLOBE, the LGBTQ community is getting creative and dreaming up ways to celebrate our community and show our pride!
We are compiling a list of virtual pride celebrations, so check back often to see what is developing as we get closer to pride. Center staff also have some virtual celebrations planned for our local community, stay tuned for more information!
We Don't Have Pride Without YOU!
It's time to get creative, friends! We would love to see photos of you, your family, or your pets, all decked out for pride! If photos aren't your thing, make a video, a song, a poem, short story, drawing, painting, digital art, or anything that shows why pride is important to you. This is an opportunity for us to celebrate together and to show our communities that pride is more than just parades, and solidarity exists even when we are apart.
Please e-mail your photos, videos, or writings to firstname.lastname@example.org and let us know if we have your permission to share your photos on our website, newsletter, and social media.
