Our Sponsors make our projects possible, and we are deeply grateful for their generous support and ongoing commitment to Hawaii’s LGBTQ+ community.
The Hawaii LGBT Legacy Foundation and its Honolulu Pride Committee would like to thank all of our Sponsors for their continued support – especially during such unprecedented times in our lives. After much deliberation we’ve come to the difficult decision that, due to the unpredictable nature of COVID-19 virus and the recent increase of case counts, this year’s Honolulu Pride Parade & Festival will not be an in-person event. In its place, we are hosting a Virtual Honolulu Pride with all the fun, educational and inspiring programs from last year, plus a few new surprises.
Like everyone, we feel a responsibility to help protect our community, so we are hosting a 2021 Virtual Honolulu Pride that will include the KHON2 special program Aloha With Pride, the Tiny Floats Parade (with prizes!), a series of Rainbow Town Halls, the wildly popular Virtual After Party, a new Coming Out Day online project, and more. And we will once again install the Rainbows Over Waikiki Pride Banners thanks to presenting sponsor Hawaiian Airlines. We’re also working to produce several small-scale, more intimate cultural events during Honolulu Pride Month, and hope to plan a Pride Picnic community gathering at a later date.
Last year our virtual programs including the KHON2 broadcasts and our streaming projects helped us reach our largest audience ever. With this year’s additional programs, we hope to achieve even greater outreach and awareness. Please review our 2020 Impact Report for more details.
Stay tuned for more details and please join us for this year’s Virtual Honolulu Pride. Keep the LGBTQ+ aloha growing and flowing–virtual, at a distance–but, more than ever, diverse, all-inclusive and very real. Mahalo nui!
