Blade plans 4 Pride editions

For decades, the Blade has run one main Capital Pride edition each June. But because of coronavirus restrictions and the cancellation of the Capital Pride parade and festival, we’re instead planning Pride content in each of our June papers. There will also be a live webchat devoted to each that will happen at 4 p.m. EST the day prior to publication. 

In the June 5 edition, we’ll examine “how to celebrate your first Pride and coming out.” A webchat wth officials from SMYAL, the Los Angeles LGBT Center and the It Gets Better Project will be held on Thursday, June 4 at 4 p.m. EST. 

In the June 12 edition, the topic will be “Pride in business.” A webchat will be held on Thursday, June 11 at 4 p.m. EST with various guests.

In the June 19 edition, the topic will be “reflections of Pride.” The webchat will be on Thursday, June 18 at 4 p.m. EST.

In the June 26 edition, we’ll examine “global virtual Pride.” A webchat will happen on Thursday, June 25 at 4 p.m. EST with officials from Capital Pride, L.A. Pride and others TBD. 

Links to the webchats will be published each week on the Blade’s Facebook page.
