Prides in over 500 cities around the world have been canceled due to the coronavirus.

For millions of LGBT+ people, Pride events represent a precious moment of visibility, community, and solidarity. Pride boosts our movement and our community, powering our batteries for the coming year. Without it, our sense of belonging, our visibility, our advocacy, and our ability to support each other are all weakened.

But we don’t need to give up on Pride 2020 around the world. The power of digital gives us the chance to come together for Pride in spirit, if not with our bodies. It allows us to respect physical distancing, but embrace social and community cohesion. It allows us to celebrate who we are and who we love across borders and cultures.

This is #UnDistanced.

In countless countries around the world, LGBT+ people are denied safety, dignity and meaningful citizenship. The only way for them to survive is to leave. This courageous decision invariably comes with new dangers, harsh living conditions and interminable bureaucracy. We’ll hear directly from refugees who are on the long and difficult journey for the simple right to live with dignity and human rights.

June 28 - Panel discussion: The fight for love and equality in Russia: How to help make a difference -  12pm EST / 5pm BST

St. Petersburg is one of the biggest cities in Russia. Despite being known for its progressive and liberal attitude, LGBT+ people are at constant risk of being discriminated against and violently attacked. They risk getting arrested for showing up at public LGBT+ gatherings like Pride parades.

While people from all over the world participate in All Out's campaign action to show solidarity with LGBT+ people in St. Petersburg, we'll get together with our partners in St. Petersburg to talk about the fight for love and equality in Russia and how people around the world can help make a difference.

All Out and our Russian partners want to bring Pride to the city of St. Petersburg through the power of Digital. Virtually we want the world to turn up in St. Petersburg on this, the 51st anniversary of the Stonewall riots. We want our LGBT+ siblings in St. Petersburg to feel the solidarity and love of a global LGBT+ community who has their backs.

How do we do this? We will call on our global audience of hundreds of thousands of members to geotag themselves in a central square in St. Petersburg.

The actions will come from web, social media, and messaging apps, and we want the action takers, the community in St. Petersburg, and even the homophobic bigots to feel the power of thousands of people 'turning up' in St. Petersburg to celebrate Pride and love.

Show solidarity with LGBT+ folks in Russia.

July 1 - Panel discussion: Do corporations pinkwash Pride? 12pm EST - 5pm BST


Pride has become an important moment for the corporate sector to display its support for the LGBT+ community. Is this a welcome form of support, an attempt to tap into the community’s considerable spending power, or just outright pinkwashing? And how do we tell the difference?

July 2, 2020 – 7pm Berlin / 1pm EST: Diskussionsrunde: Solidarität und Intersektionalität in der deutschen LGBT*-Bewegung


Die deutsche LGBT*-Bewegung ist stark. Sie könnte jedoch noch stärker sein, indem sie enger mit queeren, intersektionalen Gruppen zusammenarbeitet und robuste Kooperationen über Grenzen hinweg aufbaut und pflegt.

Wir wollen die Herausforderungen und Möglichkeiten der Zusammenarbeit zwischen Mainstream und kleineren, intersektionalen LGBT*-Organisationen in Deutschland diskutieren und gemeinsam überlegen, wie Koalitionen genutzt werden können, um Solidarität mit LGBT*-Personen außerhalb Deutschlands zu zeigen.
