Prides in over 500 cities around the world have been canceled due to the coronavirus.
For millions of LGBT+ people, Pride events represent a precious moment of visibility, community, and solidarity. Pride boosts our movement and our community, powering our batteries for the coming year. Without it, our sense of belonging, our visibility, our advocacy, and our ability to support each other are all weakened.
But we don’t need to give up on Pride 2020 around the world. The power of digital gives us the chance to come together for Pride in spirit, if not with our bodies. It allows us to respect physical distancing, but embrace social and community cohesion. It allows us to celebrate who we are and who we love across borders and cultures.
This is #UnDistanced.

St. Petersburg is one of the biggest cities in Russia. Despite being known for its progressive and liberal attitude, LGBT+ people are at constant risk of being discriminated against and violently attacked. They risk getting arrested for showing up at public LGBT+ gatherings like Pride parades.

All Out and our Russian partners want to bring Pride to the city of St. Petersburg through the power of Digital. Virtually we want the world to turn up in St. Petersburg on this, the 51st anniversary of the Stonewall riots. We want our LGBT+ siblings in St. Petersburg to feel the solidarity and love of a global LGBT+ community who has their backs.
How do we do this? We will call on our global audience of hundreds of thousands of members to geotag themselves in a central square in St. Petersburg.
The actions will come from web, social media, and messaging apps, and we want the action takers, the community in St. Petersburg, and even the homophobic bigots to feel the power of thousands of people 'turning up' in St. Petersburg to celebrate Pride and love.
