The List Of The 2020 Virtual Pride Events

virtual pride 2020

Close to 500 Pride Marches have been postponed or canceled due to the coronavirus according to European Pride Organizers Association’s global list, but more events will be held virtually to celebrate Pride Month.

Depending on where you live, it may not be possible at this time to gather by thousands.

You may be in a country where the situation is almost back to normal, but large gatherings aren’t allowed yet.

Or maybe you’re in South America, which in recent weeks has become the epicenter of the coronavirus pandemic, and so Marches won’t be possible by the end of the month.

With the uncertainty of when this will be possible, it is difficult for organizers to plan an event, as they need to reserve staff, guests, and equipment for the parade and shows.

And I’m not even talking about the fact that organizers are unlikely to appear responsible for creating clusters.

But no virus will stop LGBTQ+ people to celebrate their Pride!

Teams organizing these events have remained in touch during the confinement and set up a virtual LGBTQ+ Pride to celebrate Pride Month in June as usual.

This year is a significant year for our community, as we mark the 50th anniversary of the Pride Marches.

Here’s a summary of this month’s events you may attend.
