For fifty years, the month of June has celebrated LGBTQ+ Pride traditions but due to the pandemic and the appalling murder of George Floyd that has led to nationwide protest, we have to re-think how we can ALL come together. To bring us all together safely for Pride Month, GLAAD created the Pride Guide, a platform to help LGBTQ+ people and allies navigate the hundreds of digital Pride celebrations and online events during the month of June. In acknowledgment of the inhumane murder of George Floyd, GLAAD is reprioritizing Pride Month events to support the Black community.
Per GLAAD’s recent post,
“GLAAD stands with the loved ones of George Floyd, the Black community, our staff and supporters, and the protesters who continue to fight for justice and equality across this country. It is all of our responsibility to speak out publicly against racism, systemic injustice, and police brutality, and to elevate voices and amplify stories of people of color, especially within the LGBTQ community. For this reason, we are doing our best to reprioritize events and actions to support the Black community and the fight to combat racism, discrimination, injustice, and police brutality in this year’s Pride Guide. There can be no Pride if it is not intersectional.”
The guide has several virtual event options across cities nationwide to choose from throughout the month of June and more may be added throughout the month. The guide lets you filter by state, event type and event category throughout June and July 2020.
To access the Pride Guide please visit: https://www.glaad.org/prideguide. Please note this guide is in no way comprehensive. If you have any suggested events or gatherings to add to GLADD’s Pride Guide, especially ones focused on supporting LGBTQ people of color, please fill out this form and they will do their best to promote them.
During this unprecedented time of the COVID-19 pandemic and the racial injustices happening nationwide we must stand together and come together peacefully but also safely! To learn more about GLAAD and Pride Month please visit: https://www.glaad.org/tags/lgbt-pride-month.
