With the global fight for the pandemic still happening, people are enforced to stay in their houses. One may say that Pride 2020 is totally cancelled, but being stuck at home doesn’t necessarily mean we can’t come together to march for our rights.
Pride@Tech; composed of Globe, GCash, Google, Facebook, IBM, Analog Devices, and the digital creative agency Propel Manila; creates the solution. Presenting Pride March from Home: United for COVID Relief. A virtual platform where we can all come together and march safely in our homes, for the benefit of the affected LGBTQIA+ communities.
Nichole Sanchez, a Senior Art Director at Propel Manila, shares their inspiration for the initiative, “Homes have always been a symbol of love and unity. And with this platform, we can turn our homes into our very own marching grounds to spread our loving message of inclusivity, diversity, and equality.”
In fact, it’s very easy to march. Just go to www.marchforpride.com and follow these quick steps:
- Set a virtual pride route. Keep your address private!
- Color your march with your chosen Pride color.
- Make it count by submitting with hashtags #Recreate #Pride2020 #PrideMarchFromHome.
Ideas that matter
- Pledge your support with a donation or by sharing it online.
All proceeds of the march will go to LGBTQ+ communities affected by COVID-19 via iVolunteer, the Philippines’ first volunteer portal built by volunteers for volunteers—to spread the passion of volunteerism in the country.
Let’s come together at www.marchforpride.com on June 27, 3PM for the biggest pride march online. In collaboration with MM Pride, iVolunteer, and Globe.
