When is Pride Month 2020?

Obviously, with the planet under the grip of the coronavirus breakout, public gatherings are a no-go this year.

The month of June sees Pride Month take place across the globe.

But what is Pride? And how are the celebrations begin affected by Covid-19 this year?

Here's everything you need to know.

What is Pride?

Every year, during the month of June - chosen because that is when the Stonewall Riots took place in 1969 - the LGBT+ community celebrates Pride in a number of different ways.

Various events are held across the globe during the month as a way of recognising the influence LGBT+ people have had throughout history.

As well as being a month-long celebration packed with events, Pride is an opportunity to peacefully protest and raise political awareness of current issues facing the LGBT+ community and beyond.

How will it be celebrated in 2020?

Parades are a prominent feature of Pride month, and there are many street parties, community events, poetry readings, public speaking, street festivals and educational sessions, all of which are covered by mainstream media and attract millions of participants.

Usually, major UK cities hold their own parades in places like London and Manchester, although these have understandably been cancelled this year.
