This year, Time Out is helping take Pride global.
As part of our month-long #PrideWorldwide campaign, we’re partnering with the first-ever Global Pride, a virtual event being curated and hosted by Pride organizations from around the world. Over the next few weeks, we’ll be sharing exclusive details about the international event, all leading up to an epic, 24-hour live stream on Saturday, June 27.

Want a few more reasons to tune in? The Global Pride live stream is set to feature remarks from some major performers, world leaders and human rights activists over the course of its day-long, continent-hopping stream. Participants already announced include Norway’s Prime Minister Erna Solberg, singer Olivia Newton-John, the Dixie Chicks and the drag performers Pabllo Vittar and Courtney Act, with more to come over the next few weeks.
“We’re delighted that Time Out are partnering with Global Pride,” says Steve Taylor, Communications Director for Global Pride. “Time Out’s global brand recognition and long-standing support for Pride and the LGBTI+ community makes them a perfect match, and we’re excited to see their #PrideWorldwide campaign develop in the run-up to Global Pride.”
Leading up to an epic live stream at the end of the month, Time Out will be celebrating LGBTQ+ communities in the world’s cultural capitals, and the creative ways they’ve managed to keep the spirit of Pride alive during these unprecedented times. A month-long, global #PrideWorldwide social campaign will also culminate in a D.I.Y. celebration and watch party.
“This Pride month, Time Out is celebrating LGBTQ+ communities in cities around the world with our first-ever #PrideWorldwide global campaign. We're shining a spotlight on the many ways LGBTQ+ cultural drivers are continuing to foster community, and are inviting our audience to join us in a D.I.Y. #PrideWorldwide celebration on Saturday, June 27,” says Time Out New York Editor Will Gleason. “In that spirit, we're ecstatic to partner with Global Pride to amplify its worldwide message of love and acceptance. With most local prides canceled in the cities we cover, we can't wait to help bring thriving local LGBTQ+ culture to a worldwide stage.”
Pride isn’t canceled this year. In fact, it’s going to be bigger than ever.
