It will be a different Pride month in 2020 after the cancellation of more than 500 LGBT+ Pride Events. According to the global list from the European Pride Organization, the entire event is going to be smaller in comparison to the rest of the year. Of course, the global pandemic due to the outbreak of the novel coronavirus is responsible for such a difference. As a result, several organizers are now thinking about how to carry on with the planning and festivities.
There are probably three options that include postponing, waiting till next year, or finding a way to do everything this year. However, the problem is that the funds are not enough if they have to cancel everything and again start planning next year. Several people have worked so hard waiting for this event, and now they will have to wait till the lockdown and restrictions are lifted.
It is so good to see the energy and spirit of the LGBT+ community. They have decided not to let anything come in the way of this very special event. According to them, the spirit of pride should be intact even if the members cannot meet each other due to the global restrictions. It will be the first time that the LGBT+ community will host all the events on digital platforms. The announcement was made this week. Very important people such as princes, superstar celebrities, and Presidents will all be present to be a part of something new in 2020. A wave of pride festivals on digital platforms will start launching in the upcoming weeks. We have a list of some of the events already.
