Pride month has looked a bit different this year, but while many Pride parades and festivals have been cancelled due to COVID-19 the celebration goes on.
Time apart from one another, driven by a pandemic and social distancing, allows us to reflect and revisit the historic events that led to this moment and the continuous fight for equality in the LGBTQ+ community. To celebrate virtually during this time, here are educational materials to learn about the history of Pride and equality in the LGBTQ+ community, as well as virtual events to inspire and raise funds for LGBTQ+ organizations.
