WE LOVED THE ‘FAMILY SHOT’ IN THIS VIDEO AND WE KNOW THAT MANY PEOPLE FROM LGBT COMMUNITIES WILL FEEL A STRONG RELATION TO THE CONCEPT OF CHOSEN FAMILY – A SUPPORT SYSTEM OF PEOPLE TO WHOM YOU ARE NOT BIOLOGICALLY RELATED BUT YOU CONSIDER THEM AS FAMILY. WITH LOCKDOWN IN PLACE AND PRIDE AND LGBT EVENTS POSTPONED OR MOVED ONLINE IN 2020 IT MAY BE HARDER AT THE MOMENT FOR PEOPLE TO BE AROUND THEIR CHOSEN FAMILY. LGBT FOUNDATION HAS LAUNCHED THE #MYPRIDEIS ONLINE CAMPAIGN TO CONTINUE TO CELEBRATE OUR COLLECTIVENESS, OUR UNITY AND OUR RESILIENCE AS A COMMUNITY AT THIS TIME.
