North Shore Pride 2020: A Year of Uniting Community


It’s been a difficult year for the North Shore Pride community, but despite the challenges 2020 has brought, we have still been able to virtually join together to Unite Community and digitally celebrate all the things that make us proud.

Looking Back on North Shore Pride 2020

Here are some of the events, programming, and initiatives we hosted this year:


Virtual Pride Parade and Festival

Although we had to cancel the 2020 North Shore Pride Parade and Festival over public health and safety concerns due to COVID-19, we moved forward with a Virtual Pride!

North Shore Pride’s theme for 2020 was “Uniting Community” and, despite the cancellation of the Parade & Festival, we did just that. Here are some of the digital events we hosted that made it special:

North Shore Pride Community Forums

In June of this year we launched our series of community forums – monthly digital conversations centered around Uniting Community and featuring diverse panelists discussing relevant LGBTQIA+ related social issues in the modern environment, with How to Build, Sustain, and Unite a Hate-Free Community. These forums have had 2,500+ views since they have been released.

We also hosted:

Virtual Vendor Fairs

We hosted not one but two virtual vendor fairs this year. One in June as part of the Virtual Pride Parade and Festival, and our Virtual Holiday Fair is happening right now!

North Shore Pride Blog

As part of our continuing mission of education and uniting community, we started a Blog! Here are some of our favorite posts:
