Virtual Pride 2020

June 28, 1969 marked the first night of the Stonewall Riots in New York City. The protest lasted six days and inspired similar uprisings. The event was honored the next year as “Christopher Street Liberation Day.” This blossomed into Pride festivals across the country.

Now it’s Pride 2020 and we’re stuck in doors. Still a host of events are streaming this weekend. I wanted to compile a list of virtual Pride options and hear how you will be spending your weekend.
