Pride 2020 isn’t canceled. Join Billboard and The Hollywood Reporter’s Pride Summit & Pride Prom for performances, queer conversation, sickening drag, LGBTQ celebrity cameos, how-to glam sessions, DJs, dancing and more to celebrate Pride 2020.
Black Lives Matter co-founder and political strategist Patrisse Cullors opened the second annual Pride Summit with a call to action, saying, “This conversation about anti-Black racism is not just for the Black community, it’s for every single one of us. Now is the opportunity for white folks across gender, sexual orientation to stand up for Black lives. We need everybody right now.”
