Human By Orientation Pride Site

Finalist in LGBTQ Community Engagement


Four months into 2020, over 400 Pride celebrations worldwide had been canceled. This not only stripped the LGBTQIA+ community of safe outlets to celebrate their queer identity, but also left the community fragmented. Our main objective of our Pride 2020 initiative was to create a safe space for the queer community and allies to gather, recharge and spread joy - allowing us to celebrate our proudest, queerest selves.



Our unique Pride campaign generated a total of 148 unique press pickups, a staggering 1.37 billion impressions, 40,083 site visits, from 113 countries, 372 unique pieces of content, and over 16 hours of entertainment. We created 1 global community during an unprecedented moment of culture, allowing LGBTQIA+ people all over the world to gather, recharge, and celebrate their proudest, queerest selves.
