Digital Pride will return in 2019, from Monday 29 April to Sunday 5 May.
The event next year will build on a phenomenally successful 2018.
This year, we reached 85,349,850 around the world. That is a third year of growth after we reaching 55.5million in 2017 and 25million in 2016, our first year.
The 2018 record-breaking year included Digital Pride taking over huge screens in New York’s Time Square.
Moreover, we broadcast a social media message calling for ‘freedom, protection and equality’ for all LGBTI people. This social ‘Thunderclap’ reached over 33 million people.

What is Digital Pride?
Gay Star News created Digital Pride as the world’s first LGBTI Pride event that is completely online.
That means you can be part of it whoever and wherever you are. It’s a Pride people can celebrate if they are in a country where LGBTI people are criminalized or in danger. But equally, it’s a Pride you can participate in from your bedroom.
What is more, Digital Pride is an event full of music, films, art, dancing, and culture. It includes opportunities to discuss the big issues facing LGBTI people around the world. And it offers participants the chance to campaign for LGBTI freedom and equality.
