COVID-19 has taken away many things from many people… however it could not destroy the love, passion and celebration of the LGBTQ+ community across the world today.

The organisation, Global Pride 2020, presented the world’s first virtual #globalpride event – a virtual 24-hour stream of content created by supporters of Pride – and featuring artists such as Elton John, Queen, Jake Shears and Rita Ora – was viewed by millions across the world in lieu of Pride events and parades being able to go ahead in cities as normal. Led by a team of volunteers in partnership with Pride networks in multiple countries, the group wanted to ensure that everyone anywhere could still take part in Pride.
