From trans marches to virtual queer karaoke.
In its standard form, Pride month is no small affair. In fact, just the opposite. Famously, in celebration of LGBTQ+ communities across the country, the 30-day stretch is a glamorous, eclectic mash of eccentric parties, glittered rainbow attire, and important politicized events, discussions, and remembrances. It’s as festive as it is vastly impactful in its acknowledgment of our long-standing history fighting against widespread prejudice in order to exercise our personal freedoms as human beings.
As a recurring homage to the Stonewall uprising in June of 1969 in New York City, the month of June will forever stand as a symbol of our ongoing fight to push beyond bias in order to protect our right to love, however we see fit. And while large in-person gatherings, major parties, and historic rallies are made impossible by the dangers imposed by the Coronavirus, it’s still Pride — and we won’t let a little social distancing shut it down.
