SPONSORED: Launched in 2016 by Gay Star News, Digital Pride is the world’s first global, online Pride festival. It features performances, screenings, live streams and panel discussions which can be viewed by people all over the world – even if they live in countries where physical Pride festivals are not possible.
Blued is a major sponsor of Digital Pride, and to celebrate, we’re teaming up with Gay Star News for an exclusive social media giveaway. We want you to post a selfie with an inspiring, amusing or powerful message using one of the relevant hashtags. You only have to include your face if you feel comfortable doing so.
So, get your passport, sunglasses and sun tanning lotion ready, because at the end of the week, one lucky participant will get chosen by the GSN and Blued team to win a trip for two, expenses paid, to World Pride in Madrid on Saturday 1 July.
Unsure what to post? check out the examples below.
Monday 24 April – #iam…
Your identity should be defined by no other than yourself. Share it with the world by posting a picture with the hashtag #iam on Monday 24 April.
Tuesday 25 April – #mychoiceaward
‘I’d like to thank my producer, my wife, my dog, my dentist…’ We all know and love (or cringe at) award ceremony speeches. But who are you thankful for? Let us know by posting a picture with #mychoiceaward
Wednesday 26 April – #wordsofwisdom
We’ve all benefited from valuable advice from our peers at one point or another. We have also all wished we could go back in time and give some timely advice to our younger selves. So, until time travel is invented, why not share your wisdom with your LGBTQ family? Just post a picture with your own #wordsofwisdom.
Thursday 27 April – #fightback
It’s time to fight back, and for this one, you just need to sit back and let Gay Star News steer the wheel. Pledge one tweet or Facebook post to Gay Star News’ #fightback thunderclap campaign (hyperlink) so that the whole community can, in unison, tell the world that they will not be silenced.
Friday 28 April – #dirtylittlesecret
We’ve all got them, those little aspects of ourselves we are reluctant to share with our peers by fear of being judged. How about owning them? share your untold truth(s) by posting a picture with #dirtylittlesecret.
