    The Lavender Effect is Celebrating Pride 50th Anniversary with Live Virtual Pride Parade

    Lavender Effect, the nonprofit dedicated to advance the future of LGBTQ heritage and culture is celebrating the 50th Anniversary of Pride with a live virtual pride parade, on Sunday, May 31, 2020 from 12pm to 3pm, via Zoom on Facebook live.

    Legendary Transgender Activist & Actress, Alexandra Billings will be the Virtual Pride Parade’s Grand Marshall & Host. Ms Billings is an actress, teacher, singer, and activist. She is best known for her recurring role on Amazon’s award-winning show “Transparent.” Ms Billings is the second openly transgender woman to have played a transgender character on television and is a true LGBTQ+ Pioneer. She is currently the first Transgender actress to be cast as Madame Morrible in the Tony award winning musical “Wicked” on Broadway.

    The Lavender Effect will host the live streaming event to launch Pride Month! LGBTQ+ Activists, Political Leaders, and Celebrities from coast to coast will join the virtual procession. As the world deals with the Covid-19 pandemic, and Pride festivities around the globe are being cancelled, this Virtual Pride Parade will celebrate our history and benefit The Lavender Effect’s mission.

    The Lavender Effect is currently accepting applications from individuals and organizations who would like to participate in the Virtual Pride Parade. LGBTQ+ activists, political leaders, and celebrities are welcome to help reach a broad audience and to share the cumulative wisdom of LGBTQ+ Pioneers. Celebrating LGBTQ+ Heritage and Culture helps to demystify our diverse community, reduce shame, combat homophobia, and empower youth.

    Those who participate are encouraged to creatively and safely express their PRIDE inside or outside, in motion or stationery, harmonic or monotone, dressed up or dressed down (no nudity please) and make a statement of gratitude for LGBTQ+ Elders, and all they’ve endured to make the world a better place. Recite your post-pandemic vision. Share what PRIDE means to you.
