On one hand, we have a global pandemic that has put an end to large group gatherings for the 50th Anniversary of Pride Month. On the other hand, we have a landmark Supreme Court case that passed a law protecting LGBTQ workers. June has definitely been a mix of highs and lows for the LGBTQ community.
Well, here’s another high! The inclusive accommodations platform FabStayz, based in Tampa, Florida, has created the most comprehensive listing of more than 250 live streaming events from 30 global Pride organizers under the web address of PrideNotCancelled.com.
While in-person 2020 Pride events have been cancelled around the world this month, the celebration goes on – online via live streaming across multiple channels from dozens of Pride organizations.
“FabStayz was determined to make Pride 2020 a reality with this website dedicated to Pride celebrations around the world,” said Robert Geller, Founder of FabStayz. “We certainly wish we were hosting Pride guests this month and attending events in person, however we can still celebrate Pride and connect with others – virtually.”
PrideNotCancelled.com provides web and social media links along with important dates and overviews to events originating in New York City, Los Angeles, Toronto, London, Chicago, Washington DC, Ireland and more.
Celebrating appearances and performances from singers, songwriters and entertainers including, Cyndi Lauper, Billy Porter of Pose, Jennifer Beals of The L Word, Dan Levy of Schitt’s Creek, RuPaul’s Drag Race participants and a long list of who’s who for Pride 2020!
In addition to live concerts there will be drag performances, virtual Pride Parades, virtual 5k runs, queer cooking, Pride flag raising, informative webinars and much more.
“This is an opportunity for individuals who would never have the chance to attend a Pride march — say, in New York or Chicago or San Francisco — to be able to be part of it,” states Cathy Renna of Target Cue, LGBTQ media relations and communications.
From the comfort of our homes Pride 2020 goes on, virtually, live streaming!
