This year, Pride Month will look much different, as nearly 400 LGBT Pride Parades across the world have already been canceled or postponed as a result of the coronavirus pandemic. Social distancing measures are still in place, leading to the cancellation of large events such as festivals.
For that reason, the European Pride Organisers Association (EPOA) and other organizations have band together to put on a digital Global Pride event to take place June 27.
Besides, organisers have said they will amplify black voices this edition, acknowledging the international response to the death of George Floyd and the unprecedented demand for racial justice, by working with founders of the Black Lives Matter movement.
Global Pride will use online platforms to deliver a Pride in which everyone can participate, wherever they are in the world. It will include musical performances, speeches, and key messages from human rights activists. The event will be live-streamed and people will be invited to join in the event from home.
