Virtual pride festivals going ahead in the USA

As London’s Virtual Pride 2020 has been cancelled, the USA parades are going ahead this year despite COVID-19 crisis.

Those celebrating the pride will be able to do so virtually with friends in America, while a number of states have postponed events until the autumn, including; Pride Northwest in Portland, Dinah Shore in Greater Palm Springs, California and Pittsburgh Pride, Pennsylvania. 

Denver PrideFest, June 20-21 - Colorado 

Recognised as one of the top ten pride events in the USA, Denver PrideFest is a free, two-day festival that (usually) takes place in Denver’s Civic Center Park. The weekend usually features activities and entertainment for adults, kids and pets. This year’s virtual event will include digital versions of the parade, 5Ks, concerts, dance parties and more. 

2020 Seattle Pride Parade and Trans Pride Celebrations, June 26-28 - Washington

Organisers announced this 2020 edition to take place in a series of virtual events and celebrations. Seattle Pride is working together with PrideFest and Trans Pride on in-person Pride events to be held in late-summer, when it may be safer to resume community festivals. 

San Diego Pride, July 11-18 - California 

Events will be moved online and hosted in virtual spaces. San Diego Pride is celebrated across a week in July with five individual events. Using the #TogetherWeRise, She Fest launches the celebrations recognising the talents and contributions of women, followed by Light up the Cathedral with a ceremonial rainbow lighting. The weekend brings The Spirit of Stonewall Rally with a series of inspiring speaker webinars, a virtual 5000 and finishing with Pride Live. 

50th anniversary celebrations to kick off via digital platforms, West Hollywood 

To commemorate the 50th Anniversary, LA Pride has been working on new and exciting initiatives that will be hosted on various digital platforms in the coming months. It is committed to adapting to the current climate and ensuring the Pride celebration will be a staple moment with diverse and creative ways to honour the LGBTQ+ community regardless of an in-person gathering.
