The COVID-19 pandemic has had a devastating impact on Pride organizations worldwide with hundreds of marches and events cancelled or postponed. Global Pride provides an opportunity for the LGBTQIA+ community around the world to come together and celebrate diversity and equality during these challenging times.

Global Pride 2020 was launched on 1 April as a partnership between InterPride,
the European Pride Organisers Association, and national Pride networks in several countries.
It’s being led by a team of volunteers from every region of the world who are all committed to ensuring that everyone, everywhere, can take part in Pride this June 2020.

We will have speeches, performances, film and other content from Prides in Africa, Europe, Asia, Oceania, and South, Central and North America. A worldwide team of more than
100 volunteers are reaching out to Prides around the world and we're promising an amazing line-up of performances that you'd expect from a Pride event.

You can watch Global Pride 2020, wherever you are in the world. All you'll need is
a mobile phone, tablet or computer.

§#BlackLivesMatter: Global Pride to Center Black Voices at Event
by Global Pride 2020
Tuesday Jun 16th, 2020 8:44 AM
Organisers Announce: Black Lives Matter will be Centered in Global Pride Event on June 27

"Global Pride leaders have said they will amplify black voices, acknowledging the international response to the death of George Floyd and the unprecedented demand for racial justice by working with founders of the Black Lives Matter movement."

"Co-Chair of the Global Pride organising committee, Natalie Thompson, said: 'As a Black woman in the LGBTQIA+ community, I feel we must confront the systemic racism and violence facing my Black brothers, sisters and non-binary siblings, in the larger culture and within the LGBQIA+ community. I could not think of a larger platform than Global Pride to do this.'"

Choreographer and viral star, Todrick Hall, will be hosting the all-day live stream of performances, talks, films and messages of support on the Global Pride website and YouTube. Millions of people at home are expected to join the livestream event, with subtitles provided in multiple languages (Global Pride).
