New England Virtual Pride
June 20 - June 29
Pride isn’t cancelled, it’s just digital! If you’re part of the community, a business, or organization it’s important to know that the first annual New England Virtual Pride will stream to a potential of 6,000 followers on Fathers Day morning, Sunday June 21st. New England Virtual Pride was founded as a response to the Covid-19 pandemic which is now an annual tradition. The streaming platform helps to advocate for the needs and voices of LGBTQ+ people through digital and social media.
Audiences will enter the behind the scenes world of LGBTQ+ drag performers, DJ’s, event promoters, queer music artists, gay bars, go-go dancers, community organizers, activists, and more from the CT/MA/RI/NY area! Stream true stories and real life commentary on how queer culture has changed due to the rise of YouTube, reality television, and social media.
The presentation includes pop-up appearances with several public figures, such as singers Vanessa Williams, Todrick Hall, and Crystal Waters. TV personality Andy Cohen from Watch What Happens Live. X-Men United actress Kelly Hu, Pose FX actress Dominique Jackson Strut, Love and Hip Hop reality TV star Mariahlynn, and several contestants from Ru’Pauls drag race.
Viewers can Like, Share, Comment, and Interact while watching performances, coming out stories, topics of intersectionality, prejudice, sexual health, a full review of the World Pride Stonewall 50th march that took place in NY just before the Covid-19 pandemic, and why pride today is still important.
