You can tune in  to the online streaming event by heading to www.globalpride2020.org/watch From 2pm AEST, but be sure to check your time zone to see when the streaming starts for you –  this can also be found at the above link.

The event is being organised by a team of volunteers from pride organisations around the world, all of whom are doing so unpaid because they believe it’s important to show Pride, even when the world is facing such enormous challenges. As such viewers will be given the opportunity to make donations towards the Pride Relief Fund, to support Prides who are affected by COVID-19 and may not survive this year.
