Cruelty against George Floyd has united the struggles in a single voice of protest.
June is Gay Pride Month in which the LGBTQ community carries out many activities to commemorate their fight for their rights.
Due to the world health situation, this year they will not be able to carry out their activities or the parade.
However, not everything is lost, thanks to the interaction with the technological teams, the community will hold a virtual meeting to protest against the mistreatment and brutality of the police against minorities.
The proposal comes from actor Brian Michael Smith and presenter Ashlee Marie Preston, both transgender. They have called together activists, politicians, and organizers to support this virtual meeting as well as the actions that keep the United States convulsed by the murder against George Floyd.
In a statement from NYC Pride, the organization told about the protests that the "Gay Power" has carried out over the years.
"Present yourself as a community to change the future and make your voice heard in this new virtual meeting experience (...) The first rally occurred in June 1969, a month after the Stonewall riots, when 500 people gathered for a 'Gay Power' rally in Washington Square Park, followed by a candlelight vigil in Sheridan Square. New York pride has continued this proud tradition by hosting the event in various locations throughout the city. "
The NYC Pride Rally will take place on June 26 starting at 5 p.m. ET and you can participate and witness through the NYC Pride pages on Twitter, Instagram, Facebook and YouTube.
