1. Pride Celebrations may be cancelled this year due to Covid-19, but nothing can stop the LGBTQ community from celebrating. This year, celebrations all over the world go virtual, so your social media and TV will be flooded with rainbow pride. Last year, some of the biggest celebrations took place all over the world, so this year was expected to be even bigger. In 1969, a police raid on a gay club in New York City sparked the Stonewall Riots, an uprising that kicked off the gay liberation movement and inspired other cities to organize their own demonstrations of pride. Each June since, these annual marches have been staged across the country to celebrate how far the fight for equality has come—and highlight how far it has yet to go. Have you joined in any Pride celebrations in previous years?
2. Pride celebrations are not about a special day for being LGBTQ, nor is it held to separate the LGBTQ community from everyone else. Actually the Pride celebrations are very inclusive and chance for everyone to get together and celebrate how closer to an equal society we are all getting, but also to think about the steps we need to take to be even more so. Are you one of those people who feel there should not be a Pride celebration, and if you are, maybe this graphic will make you understand just why these celebrations ate necessary?

3. This year, virtual celebrations are being organized all over, with one of the biggest being the NYC virtual June 28 event, which will be broadcast on local TV and streamed on ABC News Live. This event will be headlined by singer Janelle Monae, Billy Porter, Deborah Cox and "Schitt's Creek" actor Dan Levy, among others, to mark the Pride march's 50th anniversary. Last year was the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall Riots. Will you watch this event?
4. Many other virtual celebrations are scheduled in over 500 cities worldwide. Global Pride—an unprecedented worldwide Pride event—will be a 24-hour live stream which will cast segments from around the world. It'll feature appearances from drag artists like Pabllo Vittar from Brazil and Courtney Act from Australia, as well as queer icons like Olivia Newton-John and Deborah Cox, and the Dixie Chicks. Will you be participating in a virtual Pride event this year?
