2020 Pride Inside
Just because everyone’s in lockdown, doesn’t mean we can’t celebrate Pride this month. There’s just as many (Zoom) parties, just as much colour and just as many things to celebrate! We’ve decided to be your party/fairy godmother and put together this list of all the Pride events you can (virtually) join in with this year.
The show must go on(line).
Staying In, Coming Out
It’s time to celebrate pride, but inside. Amnesty International, UK Black Pride, Stonewall and ParaPride have all joined forces to continue the celebrations online. Different artists, musicians, comedians, DJs and activists are coming together to deliver a series of performances, talks and workshops you just can’t miss.
They’ll be talks about mental health in lockdown, Bi BAME Empowerment, and Bi/Pan/Trans representation in arts and culture, just to name a few. So kick back this Friday night, pour yourself a large glass of wine and watch Bi-Fi Festival from the comfort of your own sofa.
Exist. Persist. Resist. Global Pride are live streaming 24 hours of content to ensure that Pride shines on through COVID-19. And with performances from Todrick Hall, a speech from Justin Trudeau and many, many more exciting performances going on, this is not one you’ll want to miss.
They’ll be celebrating the LGBT+ community, reflecting on the history and promoting a healthy and more equal future to all viewers who join their Facebook LIVE - all whilst having a party of course! You can even get involved with their virtual march. All you have to do is send pics from previous years you’ve celebrated Pride to them and your pic will be included. What are you waiting for? Pick out your best Pride pic now and get sending!
Brighton and Hove Pride
1st to 2nd August
You’ve got the Main Stage, the Cabaret Stage, the BAME Stage, the Pride Dance Big Top stage, QueerTown, the Trans Fabuloso Stage as well as all their other stages all available at the click of a button. It’ll be all the same BIG acts they normally get, but without all the walking from stage to stage. This is not one you’ll be wanting to miss!
It’s time to put the dates in your diary, get out your rainbow face paint, and celebrate Pride 2020 in true style. And if you’re in need of some more colourful garms/face jewels (aren’t we all?!) don’t forget to check out Dust and Dance!
