The Louisville Pride Foundation has launched a Digital Pride initiative to continue bringing people together during social distancing. Digital Pride is evolving, but so far it includes bi-weekly Community Conversations, hosted by the LPF Executive Director Mike Slaton, and a weekly virtual drag show, sponsored by United Auto Workers Local 862.
Community Conversations happen Tuesdays and Thursdays at 1:00 PM on Facebook Live, and topics have included Racial Disparities, and COVID-19, Transgender Day of Visibility, and Community Efforts to Provide PPE. Archived videos are available on YouTube.
The Virtual Drag show is hosted by Syimone and happens every Friday night at 8:00 PM on Facebook Live. Louisville Pride is paying the performs, and all tips are split between the Louisville Pride Foundation and the One Louisville COVID-19 Response Fund.
