6:00 PM: Virtual Arizona Pride: One Year Later

On April 4-5, 2020, in the scary early days of the pandemic, Arizona’s LGBTQ+ community came together to put on the first-ever Virtual Arizona Pride event to create a space for our community to come together in spirit if not in person. Now, on the anniversary of our first event, as it looks like there is light at the end of the tunnel, join the Virtual Arizona Pride crew and some special guest for a look back on the first Virtual Pride festival in the world and a discussion on building queer community in the time of COVID and what the future may bring. Available on YouTube and Facebook Live.
