While Rona has pretty much canceled everything we love this year, the It Gets Better Project is not letting it ruin pride.
On Tuesday, the LGBTQ+ nonprofit organization that serves LGBTQ+ youth, unveiled “It Gets Better: A Digital Pride Experience.”, a three day digital Pride event that will bring together a diverse slate of talent across genres, including fitness, lifestyle, fashion & beauty, gaming, music and drag performances.
The Digital Pride event will stream from 2-7 p.m. PT, June 24-26 on the organization’s YouTube, Facebook and Twitch.
The event will honor the history of Pride month while showcasing what can be accomplished when a diverse group of community members ban together.
The organization announced a plethora of talent across all platforms and promises more will be announced leading up for the event. Digital Pride will be hosted by broadway actor and activist, Peppermint.
“This year Pride looks different. Partnering with the It Gets Better Project for A Digital Pride Experience is an opportunity to share my story and encourage positive change during this historic time,” Peppermint says. “Our community has a long history of resilience in the face of discrimination.” At the very least, this moment is an opportunity to pass that tradition on to the younger generation.”
The event will also feature performances by Rebecca Black, Crystal Methyd and Jujubee; a fitness experience with Caleb Marshall (aka The Fitness Marshall); tutorials by Louie Castro and Benji Krol; and special appearances by Alyson Stoner, The Aces, Nick Lehmann, The Angelinos and Tik Tok star, Rob Anderson.
