Organisations running LGBT+ Pride marches around the world have joined forces to hold the first online Global Pride event in June after hundreds of real-life gatherings were shelved due to the coronavirus pandemic. Global Pride will be livestreamed on June 27, starting with East Asia, Australia and New Zealand and moving through timezones to the western United States, said Steve Taylor, spokesman for the European Pride Organisers Association (EPOA). It will include musical performances, speeches, and key messages from human rights activists. More than 200 LGBT+ rights marches have been postponed or cancelled due to the spread of the coronavirus, according to EPOA, which estimates that up to 22 million people attend at least one Pride in Europe every year.
