With a global pandemic still raging on, some of the world’s biggest Pride celebrations have been canceled in-person. Instead, major cities like New York City, Chicago, Washington D.C., and San Francisco have shifted to a virtual Pride celebration – and they are even coming together for one major world-spanning Pride event! So tune in to celebrate, stay safe, and stay PROUD!
Pride organizers across the world in Europe, the Americas, Asia, and southern Africa will come together for the first-ever Global Pride. The massive, 24-hour live-streamed event will feature performances, speeches, and key messages from celebrities and other human rights activists.
Saturday, June 27

New York City Pride
NYC Pride will host a Special Pride Broadcast Event to celebrate the 50th anniversary of its first Pride march. Although the celebration will be nothing like last year’s World Pride smash, the city does not disappoint with a lineup that includes Billy Porter, Janelle Monáe, Deborah Cox, Luísa Sonza, Margaret Cho, Miss Richfield 1981, and more. The whole thing will be hosted by style superstar Carson Kressley.

With the hopes of being able to celebrate an in-person Pride in October, Atlanta Pride organizers are continuing with the planning of the event. Alternatively, the committee is also preparing for having at least some parts of the Pride festival as virtual celebrations. They have already launched several digital initiatives like Netflix watch parties in partnership with Out On Film, Drag Queen Story Hours with Miss Terra Cotta Sugarbaker, and digital DJ sessions.
October 9 – 11
Programming will be announced via atlantapride.org
