Q.Digital takes this year’s Pride celebration online

18 June 2020

Since the first Pride marches in 1970, the LGBTQ community has gathered together each year to protest, celebrate and live as our truest selves. What started as a single day in June has blossomed into a full season of hundreds of worldwide Pride celebrations starting in early April (Phoenix, Miami, Fort Lauderdale) through Palm Springs Pride in early November.   

This year, however, will be much different. Many Prides have announced postponements and some, like San Francisco and Boston, are skipping this year altogether.  That won’t stop Q.Digital, the leading LGBTQ media company behind the sites Queerty, LGBTQ Nation, and GayCities, from celebrating. In addition to coming on board as the exclusive North American media sponsor of InterPride’s Global Pride, the company is showcasing the spirit of Pride and the people that make Pride so special with the following initiatives: 

  • Kicking off in June and running through July, Queerty Pride50 highlights the people who make us proud, and who work to ensure that society continues moving towards equality, acceptance, and dignity for all LGBTQ people.
  • LGBTQ Nation’s Pride in Pictures editorial series asks readers to share photos and stories of their first Pride experiences, whether it was that first Pride March in 1970 or just last year.
  • GayCities Pride in Places will focus on the growing number of LGBTQ monuments across the globe, even in quite unexpected places. You might not be able to go there in person right now, so we’ll take you there and tell you the stories of how they came to be.
  • Pride Moments: Pride is an everyday experience, and Queerty’s Pride channel will be highlighting these moments that remind us what Pride is truly about; parades or no parades.
  • Pride Coverage: All our sites will be covering the virtual Pride activities happening worldwide, whether InterPride’s Global Pride or happenings near you, and we’ll extend our Pride coverage through the fall as pride IRL returns to some (hopefully, many) communities.

Finally, they’re keeping their GayCities Pride calendar up-to-date and adding in virtual Prides like InterPride’s Global Pride celebration on June 27th, and extending the Pride season into the fall with LGBTQ Nation’s “Heroes” and Queerty’s “Out For Good.” 

Every year Q.Digital aims to give their readers a comprehensive collection of Pride coverage and listings to have a memorable Pride season with their friends and family, and this year will be no exception.
