A worldwide LGBTQIA+ Pride event has announced the first wave of speakers and artists appearing at the online event Saturday, June 27, and is expected to attract up to 300 million viewers, an InterPride press release noted.

They include Carlos Alvarado Quesada, president of Costa Rica, which recently became the first Central American country to legalize same-sex marriage; prime ministers Erna Solberg ( Norway ) and Xavier Bettel ( Luxembourge ); and Prince Manvendra Singh Gohil, of India.

Artists including Pabllo Vittar, Ava Max, Olivia Newton John, Deborah Cox, Kristine W, Dixie Chicks, Thelma Houston, Bright Light Bright Light, Courtney Act, Steve Grand and Rachel Sage are already scheduled to appear, and more leading names from the world of entertainment including international musicians and bands, and performers from the LGBTQIA+ community, will be announced throughout June.

On the local front, Chicago Rev. TJ Williams-Hauger will deliver a sermon, "Oh, Lord."

Global Pride was launched by national and international Pride networks after hundreds of Pride events were cancelled or postponed due to COVID-19. Organizers are planning a 24-hour stream of content created by Prides globally, together with speeches from world leaders, activists and human-rights defenders, reflecting the organisers' statement that "Pride events might be cancelled but the spirit of Pride will live on."
