In a normal year, the third week of September marks St. Cloud Pride’s annual Pride Week. The week is normally filled with fall festivities, multiple vendors, and crafts at Lake George, followed by drag shows at the convention center.
With all of the restrictions that organizations have to follow in 2020 like social distancing and mask wearing, the St. Cloud Pride board decided to go virtual this year.
Going virtual for St. Cloud Pride means having tons of interactive events through their Facebook Page and also a Twitch stream. Some of the most popular events included a digital panel on “How to Be a Better Ally”, a completely virtual drag show, and even a digital dance party. Along with various live streams, there were interactive Facebook discussions including the fan favorite pet contest.
