It's hard to realize it's almost 2021. It seems like only yesterday that COVID canceled Pride Month 2020, and we all had to come up with inventive methods to celebrate Pride virtually while still under quarantine.
Fortunately, we have evolved significantly since then, and as it becomes safer for all of us to live our lives and be outside with friends and family again, we're happy to celebrate love around the world during Pride Month 2021 this year.
So, wherever you are this year, how can you celebrate Pride Month 2021?
To celebrate LGBTQ pride this month, we have put together a list of 5 fun LGBTQ pride month activities that you can do virtually, at home, or with your remote teams and colleagues.
1. Watch these LGBTQ films:
There are never enough LGBTQ movies to see, and the past year has been an exciting year for LGBTQ films to become more popular such as Happiest Season, The World to Come, and Ammonite.
The only drawback is that you may spend more time looking for LGBTQ films than actually watching them. So, in honor of Pride Month this year, we've compiled a list of our favorite lesbian films of all time here. Have fun!
2. Have a dance-off with remote teams:
What good is ax gay playlist if you don't listen to it during Pride? Who says we can't have a dance party at home if we can't march to the rhythms of "I'm Coming Out" this year?
3. Laughter Therapy:
Laughter draws individuals closer together and strengthens bonds. This is due to the fact that laughter is contagious, beautiful, and can build connections for remote teams. It also keeps partnerships interesting and fresh.
“Couples who can connect via humor have better communication skills and are more likely to stay together,” Morris says. “In a relationship, using laughing and smiles can lead to higher levels of satisfaction.” Laughter Therapy can also be used to repair bitterness and misunderstandings.

4. Learn about LGBTQ history by playing trivia games:
I'll be the first to confess that I'm not the most knowledgeable queer when it comes to LGBTQ history. But it's absolutely something I'd like to learn more about, and because everyone enjoys games during Pride Month about LGBT trivia.
5. Invite your LGBTQ remote teams to a virtual hangout/party:
Even if we can't all come together in person to rejoice with our friends, we can still do it electronically. A theme or activity to do together during the virtual hangout is a fun way to liven up a virtual party. You could even hold a one-second video competition.
