Toronto Pride 2020 => Virtual Pride

hey RFDers.... pride month is here... and with the COVID-19 situation, the usual pride month events had to be cancelled in various cities all over the world for public safety... but we are lucky to live now in a world where technology connects us, and makes possible to keep celebrating with our family and friends, while keeping our physical distancing; usually this thread was done yearly to share pride month events happening in toronto, where i live, but this year i will share online events that you can attend to from the comfort of your house, and i encourage you guys to share as well if you find something interesting,... this is a first for all of us, so let's see how this goes.

same as usual, please, let's try to keep this thread with positive messages, and feel free to contribute if you know of any events; cities economies all over the world will be dented by the cancellation of big events where people attends by the thousands, such as this one, but our city officials made the right decision for everybody's benefit... let's make the best out of what we have right now, and keep yourself, your family and your friends safe by staying home

Festival Weekend is June 26-28 :
  • Friday June 26 : Trans Pride
  • Saturday June 27 : Dyke Rally
  • Sunday June 28 : Online Pride Parade

Stay Safe, Stay Home, Stay Strong
HAPPY PRIDE MONTH TO ALL!!

Not entirely relevant but the whole episode was Pride today but thought it would be nice to share as not many people here would watch it.

Trans Pride
June 26, 2020 @ 1:00 PM – 3:00 PM


https://www.pridetoronto.com/event/trans-pride/

Toronto’s Trans Rally and March are officially one of the largest, most exciting Pride events in the world – not only for all the trans, non-binary, friends of, and allies who rally and march together in solidarity; but for anyone who is lucky enough to witness the landmark event. Trans women of colour and people with different abilities are encouraged to lead the march and set the pace for all. This year, in light of Covid-19, we are bringing the rally into a virtual space for an hour of speakers and performers followed by an hour of community engagement. Our 2020 theme of “Kinder and Stronger together” expresses the importance of community and celebrates the resiliency of Toronto’s trans community.
