Pride Month Goes Virtual

Bob Jagendorf
Gay Pride Parade NYC 2013

Pride Month is looking a little different this year. Traditionally, Pride is marked by big parades and celebrations. But social distancing and racial unrest means that celebrations won't look the same as they did years prior. This hour, we discuss how the Connecticut LGBTQ community is celebrating this year.

We hear from activists about virtual Pride Month events and we talk about the intersection between LGBTQ rights and racial justice.

And later, we hear how the pandemic has affected this community

How are you marking Pride Month this year?We want to hear from you.
