Virtual Pride Events Happening This Week: June 22-28

How to virtually celebrate Pride this week…
 
COVID-19 may have put a halt on IRL Pride 2020 celebrations, but that doesn’t mean Pride is cancelled. “Live stream” is the key word this year as tons of virtual Pride information sessions and celebrations go online.
 
Here are all the virtual events being held in Canada this week (June 22-28, 2020) across the country—and keep checking back, because we’ll be putting out a new list of virtual Pride events every single week!
 

 
#OurPride – LGBTQ 101 Virtual Workshop
DATE: June 23, 2020 @ 6:00 pm – 9:00 pm (MDT)
LINK: https://www.showpass.com/lgbt-101/
THE LOW-DOWN: Presented by Calgary Queer Arts Society in partnership with Calgary Pride. This workshop endeavours to create bridges of understanding about the LGBTQ community.
 
This includes a deep dive into the language developed and used by the community surrounding identity and self-expression, expands on the context of the historical LGBTQ rights movement and how it impacts us today and tracks how these developments continue to shape the world that we live in.
 
This session will also explore the many ways to engage in effective ally-ship, both in a personal and professional context and will leave participants with practical tools to help develop new relationships with the gender and sexually diverse community.
 
This session is open to anyone who is looking to create a deeper understanding of how they can support co-workers, family members and neighbours as we create a more empathetic and connected world.
