Meow Wolf has also organized a number of virtual Pride events for this year. Details below.
“Since we can’t gather together in person this year, we can all hold hands on the internet instead. That means a week of virtual Pride, babes! We’ve got something sweet nearly every day of the week, so gather your glitter and glowsticks and let’s get to it!
This year our community was reminded that our Pride must be intersectional. No Pride for some without justice for all.“
