Digital Pride launched in 2016 when it reached over 25 million people in 240 countries around the world.
It’s the first Pride everyone in the world can be an equal part of – all you need is access to a computer or smartphone.
Tris Reid-Smith, co-founder of Gay Star News and Digital Pride, said: ‘The “pilot episode” of Digital Pride this year exceeded all our expectations. Just like 2016, the 2017 event will include discussions, live performance, competitions and a global party.
In an age where politics and issues are often excluded from Pride events, they are central to Digital Pride. But there’s also space for music, arts, culture, sport, business, celebration and more.
One day, perhaps even in 2017, this will become the biggest LGBTI Pride event in the world. But more importantly, it will be a Pride where nobody is left out.’
Based on our success in 2016, we are working to connect even more people from every part of the world in 2017.
