Organizers of LGBT+ Pride events in major U.S. cities are shifting their focus to racism and police violence, they said this week, addressing the concerns and demands raised by protesters over the killing of a black man in police custody. Los Angeles Pride will hold a “solidarity protest march in response to racial injustice,” and Capital Pride in Washington said its virtual event would be part of efforts to help “end inequity, injustice, and violence against people of color.” Typically, Pride events are held nationwide throughout the month of June but this year most were canceled or moved online due to the coronavirus pandemic. The producers of L.A. Pride announced an in-person protest march on June 14 to stand “in solidarity with the Black community against systemic racism,” said Estevan Montemayor, head of producers Christopher Street West.
