Pride Month Will March On... Virtually

Wochit News
Last June, 2.5 million people flocked to New York City to celebrate World Pride. This celebration commemorates the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall Riots. But Pride is going to look a lot different this year, according to reports at Elle magazine. Organizers across the country are turning parades and festivals into virtual experiences. The good news is many of these events have been reimagined as benefits or donation drives. COVID-19 makes large gathering of people incredibly dangerous, making Pride impossible for now.
