While virtual Pride events may not be the same experience as attending Pride festivals in person, there is one vital benefit of going virtual besides practicing social distancing. Activists believe that many marginalized LGBTQ+ people in environments where they can’t openly celebrate their identity without persecution can feel the support and love of the global community. Celebrate love, inclusion and visibility with these virtual Pride events spanning many countries!
