In light of social distancing regulations put forth by the COVID-19 pandemic, the City of Toronto has opted to move the Pride Parade online. Virtual Pride leverages technology as a platform in order to highlight the talents of the diverse LGBT2Q+ community to "bring a sense of belonging and community to those who need it most during this difficult period."
The Virtual Pride event includes special events, weekly events, a 'Festival Saturday,' as well as a 'Stay Home Saturdays.' Other events include 'Sex Talk with Kat Kova,' 'The Queer Shopping Channel,' and a 'Lunch & Learn with Tennie Brown,' among other events. These were designed to continue celebrating the community even while lockdown regulations are keeping the community physically apart.
