Although in 2020 the 50th march would take place, the International Pride Day will not be as always due to the health emergency that the planet is going through, which is why the community has decided to take digital platforms to make the virtual world their place of commemoration.
Taking to the streets, supporting and demanding that long-awaited equality is an act that the LGBTI community has endlessly enacted. The first time these people protested on the streets was 51 years ago. On June 28, 1969, the Stonewall riots broke out, which unleashed a large demonstration in New York, United States, and ended with clashes between citizens and the police over unheard requests by gay people. Since then, many cities in the world have dressed in colors of red, orange, yellow, green, blue and violet to commemorate the arduous struggle being carried out for a better society.
#CaminaConmigo will be the trend that users can use on social networks to share photos, content and everything related to this significant day. Starting at 10:00 a.m. and until 2:00 p.m. Colombians will be able to join this virtual march that will be at www.caminaconmigo.com.co. In addition to sharing their support, they will be able to enjoy content generated by the sexually diverse community with artistic, social and opinion issues.
This initiative in Colombia is carried out by the LGBT Board of Bogotá, Egocity, Colombia Diversa and Pink Consultores and supported by Claro technology.
Where to see and participate in the virtual march of International Pride Day?
As the streets this time cannot be the meeting place, the digital platforms will be in charge of welcoming thousands of Colombians who are part of the community and who support this equality initiative.
People interested in accompanying this day on June 28 may do so in this transmission that will be broadcast here.
‘Let’s go and make history together!’ Is the message offered by the LGBT Table, Egocity Colombia Diversa and Pink Consultores and supported by Claro.
