What is the point of Pride? A protest, a parade, or just a month of pinkwashing? The origins of Pride are relatively well-known, at least within the LGBT community. All social justice movements evolve over time, hopefully as they help to achieve what they’re fighting for. But what, and who, is Pride fighting for (and against) now? On whose behalf does it speak? These are key ideological questions, but there are structural and institutional ones too, such as who runs Pride — globally, nationally and regionally? Where does the money go? Is anybody measuring whether Pride has an impact? Does any of that even matter? Join us for a ThinkIn to share what Pride means to you, and help us make sense of what Pride is for.
