Paris – Fifty years on from the first gay pride march, the LGBT community and their supporters took many of their events online Saturday, responding to the threat of the coronavirus pandemic.While some activists took to the streets to mark the event, much of the movement’s energy was channeled into Global Pride, a 24-hour online event broadcast live online.

London Pride, one of the biggest events in the gay pride calendar, was one major victims of the new restrictions imposed by the pandemic.Online events replaced it under the slogan: “Postponed, but still united.”But veteran campaigner Peter Tatchell, wearing a rainbow-colored mask, led a group of 12 fellow activists to mark the 50th anniversary of the founding of the London Gay Liberation.
