San Diego Pride has scheduled a series of upcoming virtual events to keep the LGBTQ community connected during these difficult times. The series began last Monday with an hour long question and answer session with City of San Diego Councilmember Chris Ward who shared about COVID-19 and its direct impact on the local LGBTQ community.

Community members are given the opportunity to participate in a variety of ways, including the ability to submit questions in advance for sessions that include Q&As with local community leaders and elected officials. Upcoming virtual sessions include Q&As with Council President Georgette Gomez, and Councilmember Dr. Jen Campbell, as well as a panel of interfaith leaders.

The next session is scheduled for Wednesday, April 29 from 1-2 pm with Council President Gomez. Additional information is here.

On Thursday, April 30 from 6-8 pm, a special panel titled "Reconciling Faith & Queer Identity" will be held featuring interfaith leaders from around San Diego who will discuss how their traditions help to reconcile queerness with their faith tradition. More on this is here.

Another Pride Q&A session is scheduled for Friday, May 1 from 12-1 pm featuring San Diego City Councilmember Jennifer Campbell. Those who wish to submit questions for Councilmember Campbell can send them for consideration to JCoyne@sandiego.gov with the title "Pride Q&A."

All sessions include closed captioning.
