Introducing Iraqi LGBT+ community to the world on Global Pride

Global Pride, the 24-hour virtual Pride taking place this weekend, will shine a light on LGBTQIA+ people from every continent. Organizers say it has the potential to be the largest LGBTQIA+ event ever. Over 500 Pride and LGBTQIA+ community organisations from 91 countries contributed more than 1,500 films to the Global Pride project, which launched with less than three months to plan, organise and deliver the event.

We are proud to announce that Rasan will be part of this event, and we will be sharing our message with the world on behalf of the Iraqi LGBT+ community on the 9th/10th hour of the event, on a platform where a number of world politicians including former US Vice President Joe Biden, Canadian PM Justin Trudeau, and Austrian President Alexander van der Bellen, will be speaking.

You can find the time of the stream through this link, and you can watch the event here.
