Submit content

Ready to submit content to us? Here’s how!

If you’re from a Pride organisation, check out this information to find out how to get involved.

We want submissions that truly reflect the incredible diversity of the LGBTI+ community around the world. This means every identity within the LGBTI+ spectrum, and diversity of appearance, skin colour, ethnicity, race, religion, gender, ability and background. Submissions are welcome in any language. If you are able, please provide English subtitles or include a translation of your content in a document (like Microsoft Word or Google Docs). The audience will be global, so we hope to provide subtitle translations for the full Global Pride audience.

We are looking for two types of video content, spoken word and performances.

Spoken word

Pride is a human rights movement and Global Pride will highlight the struggle for LGBTI+ equality around the world. For the spoken segments, we want 90 second speeches from established LGBTI+ activists and human rights defenders in which they talk about the issues affecting their community. This might focus on erasure of bisexual voices, the attacks on trans rights, hate crime, government inaction on LGBTI+ equality, or any other issue relevant to their community. Or it might be a group message from your Pride or community organisation to send solidarity to Global Pride viewers around the world.

The speaker(s) can include a call to action (i.e. ‘please visit www.website.org for more information’) but it must not include a fundraising message or mention of a sponsor. Remember, we want authentic voices of activism from within the community. Speakers should not introduce themselves in the segment as introductions will be by voice-over and captioning.

If you wish to submit a speech from a significant public figure (such as a leading politician) please email ron.deharte@interpride.org to discuss.

Performance

For decades, Prides have showcased the incredible talent from within our communities and Global Pride will do the same. For the performance segments, we want four minute performances from LGBTI+ artists who are endorsed by an established Pride organisation. These segments will include singers, bands, drag artists, dancers, visual artists, comedians – literally any performing artist from within the community.

Due to music licensing, we are much more likely to use content where performers who use music are using their own music rather than music for which royalties are payable. Music licensing is full of legal complexities and we are working through this at the moment. Performers should not introduce themselves in the segment as introductions will be by voice-over and captioning.

How to submit content

Submitting content to us is no guarantee that we will use it. Editorial decisions will be made by the Production team in consultation with our partner organisations.

Content that is filmed incorrectly will not be used. If you’re filming on a mobile device, make sure you read our guidance on how to film. If you’re using professional camera equipment, please film in high definition. You may edit your clip if you wish but do not add icons, graphics, frames or captioning or the clip will not be used. We just want the basic film.
