You don’t need to put your plans on hold because of lockdown. Why not revisit the way you celebrate Pride by following these top tips for celebrating Pride from the comfort of your own home.
Throughout June, July, and August people from all across the UK usually celebrate Pride by taking part in celebrations, parades, and events all centering around LGBTQ+ culture. But how can you adapt your festivities to align with the 2020 way of doing things?
Hold your own pride
Transforming your living space is simple to do, and a fantastic way to celebrate Pride, safely. Holding a small socially distanced barbeque in your garden, or visiting a local park with friends is a great way to keep up the tradition, without breaking any rules.
You don’t have to have a large space to get involved with Pride celebrations either. There are a variety of apps perfect for getting together with friends in a virtual environment.
Getting creative by making decorations is a valuable and super fun way of getting into the spirit of Pride. Creating banners to hang in windows or walls, assembling a rainbow balloon arch, or trying out face painting are great options for those with smaller spaces.
Many charities, venues, and organisations rely on Pride events to raise vital funds to continue their efforts within the LGBTQ+ community.
Whether that's raising money for LGBTQ+ youth homelessness, educational resources, community centres, and drop-in clinics, you can still donate online to continue your support.
Alternatively, why not hold a virtual Pride charity bakeoff. Put your skills to the test by making your favourite treats all in the name of charity.
Many of us have exhausted the typical lockdown activities of reading and watching TV series after TV series. Why not use your time to educate yourself on the history of Pride celebrations, its origins, founders, and meanings behind the well-known traditions that so many love.
Many charities offer online resources for getting to know more about Pride, and there are many documentaries on streaming services if you prefer a more visual and immersive experience.
