Pride Home Party Tips
The month of June is traditionally the month where many of us in the LGBTQ+ community celebrates Pride. Cities come alive with music and activities to support the rights of all sexualities and genders. Parades are run, and carnival-style parties fill the streets with rainbow flags and people dressed in colourful technicolour. Going to Pride isn’t always possible, but having the LGBTQ+ rainbow flag gives many hope and reassurance. When you can’t go to the festival, make the festival come to you!
Planning a home party is an alternative option for celebrating Pride, and it has been made even more possible, since Pride has started to being celebrated on online streaming and social media platforms.
With a selection of bunting, mini Pride flags, and a large Pride flag you can easily fill your home with the Rainbow Pride colours. The mini flags can be shared out amongst loved ones or placed in your favourite house plants pot.

To make your party accessible to your friends and loved ones outside of your household, you can always set-up a group zoom conference, or Facebook chat group so you can share the moments that you love the most between each other. If you don’t have many people to celebrate within your network, there are many hashtags you can join in with via social media including photo ones over on Instagram to help bring awareness to Pride.
