It’s not clear when we’ll be able to even begin going back to “normal”, and it’s very unlikely that large scale events such as Pride will be able to even take place at all this year.
But from today starts the official Pride Week!
🦄🌈 🦄 🌈 🦄 🌈
We all share the deep disappointment that many feel about this. Pride festivities each year where the LGBTQ community is not only strongly represented in terms of numbers, but also in terms of the culture and political power. To lose the main event that celebrates and defines who we are to the world is a major blow to a large segment of our people, and we are sure this is the case for LGBT+ people in every community that usually has a Pride festival every summer.
The truth is, however, that Pride can never truly be cancelled. Pride is much more than an event; it’s a way of life. It’s the Pride and love we feel towards each other, the recognition of the diversity that makes our LGBTQ family so unique and special.
We will get through this, and in the meantime let’s use this time we have at home to count our blessings, express our appreciation for each other through the modern communication at our fingertips and focus on the important mission in front of us, because squirrel friends do we have one. Pride will never go away – it lives within all of us.
For millions of People all over the world is Pride the moment to come together, to feel loved and connected, tome to demonstrate for equality and to be visible. You are not alone!!! We are with so many and this year we are not taking corona take away our visibility!!!
This time we go global through livestream. Whether you are at home, at a public monument or join a Rainbow tour. 🏳️🌈
This 27th of June 2020 we gonna make a big sign to get a bigger visibility of our LGBTI+ Community with Global Pride!!! 🏳️ 🌈🏳️ 🌈
