Hello! If you’re here then you, like us, are excited for Scarleteen’s Digital Pride Celebration!
We hosted a digital celebration last year, and are continuing to do so for a number of reasons. For starters, while the COVID-19 pandmic is in a very different stage than it was last summer, meeting in large groups is still not the safe choice for many people in many places.
We’re also very aware that lots of our users can’t access in-person pride celebrations, whether that’s due to living somewhere pride isn’t widely celebrated, not being able to be safely out, a disability that makes a lot of pride events a non-starter, or something else entirely. We always want to host a pride that as many people can attend as possible!
So, you’re invited to join us on June 25th and 26th for the inclusive, low-key, and (sometimes) goofy glory that is Scarleteen Pride!
We’ll be updating this page throughout the celebration to include links to all kinds of good stuff, including:
A pride mixtape, from the Scarleteam to all of you.
Scarleteam members sharing their favorite pieces of queer media.
Drag numbers from a set of incredible performers
Drag queen story time
