What a long, long time ago June 2019 seems like right now. It was the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall riots, and more than 100,000 people watched or participated in the New York City Pride Parade. We’re in a different world now, with Pride events all over the world canceled. But that most certainly does not mean that you and your kids need to spend the day inside moping. It’s time to make Pride happen at home, everyone!
There are plenty of on-demand and live-streaming events for Pride month. It’s hard to imagine sitting in front of a computer taking the place of that life-affirming, love-accepting loud and glittery street party. You can be proud sitting down, but it’s just less fun that way. For a celebration in the true spirit of Pride, you’re going to need to put in a little effort. Here we’ve listed some craft projects, decorating ideas (for your home and your little paraders themselves), as well as anything you need to march through your neighborhood streets to show everyone that love is love, even when we’re social-distancing.
For those families with no one that’s LGBTQ-identifying (or not yet), you don’t need to sit this out. This is still a great moment to celebrate and talk about being a loving, inclusive ally to all.
