Pride 2021: Big cities ‘playing the safe card’ with small gatherings, virtual events

  Pride 2021: Big cities ‘playing the safe card’ with small gatherings, virtual events Big cities play it safe for Pride 2021 with small gatherings and virtual events.“In the years before the pandemic, while I was out to my friends, I was still really scared to go to Pride,” Duchmann, 27, said. “Because I’m bisexual, I kind of pass as straight a lot, and so that kind of created anxiety with me for years, making me feel like I didn't really belong in the LGBT community.

Victoria Beckham designed t-shirts to help combat homelessness in LGBTQ youth, enlisting none other than her former girl group members Mel B, Mel C, Emma Bunton, and Geri Halliwell to help.

In a campaign video shared on the Spice Girls' Instagram, each of the women posed in shirts from Beckham's 2021 Pride collection that read, "Proud and wannabe your lover." The white tees had rainbow text, except for the word "wannabe," which was in black bold print.

"100% of the proceeds go to the brilliant @aktcharity to continue funding the wonderful work they do to combat youth homelessness in the LGBTQ+ community. #Pride2021 #FriendshipNeverEnds ????️‍????," the video was captioned.

Beckham, 47, shared the video on her Instagram account with an extended caption to share why Pride Month is important to her.

"Pride to me is a celebration of being completely yourself and this year's T-shirt is a reminder of that. The Spice Girls really championed accepting yourself and others, being kind, having fun and just living your best life!" the mom of four wrote.

She added, "The LGBTQ+ community is so close to my heart and I'm so proud to be supporting Pride 2021 with the girls and akt again this year."

Beckham has partnered with the akt charity twice before, but this is her first time incorporating the Spice Girls, whom she sang with from 1994 to 2000.
