Silence to Solidarity Global Concert Replay Is On YouTube!
Join us in supporting the global LGBTQIA+ community!
The Silence to Solidarity Global Concert aimed to replenish and raise funds to help our global LGBTQIA+ communities in need. As there is a continuous need for resources worldwide, our funds can be quickly exhausted and constantly needs replenishing to ensure we help as many as possible.
The concert initially streamed on March 19, 2022, and is back by popular demand! The “replay” is now available on YouTube until September 20, 2022! It includes a diverse range of global artists, musical performances, inspiring community leaders, celebrity champions, and activists (Concert Talent).
Where Do the Donations Go?
The Solidarity Fund is one of InterPride’s three grant funding programs, geared toward supplying grants to LGBTQIA+ Pride or Pride-like organizations worldwide. In addition, InterPride has helped make several community-based Pride events possible and aims to show a committed effort in the Global South and Eastern Europe as the LGBTQIA+ community often encounters adversity in those areas.
Since its beginning in 2013, monies have been awarded to support the staging of an LGBTQIA+ film festival, a large-scale LGBTQIA+ wedding, and the first public Pride festivities in Jinja, Uganda, and Nassau, The Bahamas.
Another one of our grant funding programs is the Humanitarian Aid Fund, which provides grants for essential needs, combating racism, and facility development to LGBTQIA+ Pride or Pride-like organizations worldwide.
How Does the Concert Serve the LGBTQIA+ Community?
InterPride acknowledges the hardships and challenges that our LGBTQIA+ community members in the Global South and East, including Eastern Europe, continue to endure at this time. Unfortunately, violence and discriminatory or hostile behavior continue to increase.
While USD 7,400 was donated to Kyiv Pride and Kharkiv Pride in Ukraine from the initial S2S Concert, we also distributed the balance to other countries in the Global South and East through our Solidarity Funds.
Replaying our Silence to Solidarity Global Concert will increase awareness and help raise donations for the LGBTQIA+ communities in urgent need of assistance.
