June is Pride Month, a time to intentionally practice self-love, immersing yourself in communities of love and support while remembering the sacrifices made by those who have gone before us, paving the way for the progress we enjoy today. With the introduction of COVID-19 restrictions around the world to keep us all safe, most Pride events were cancelled in June 2020.
While this was an understandable and necessary sacrifice, we mourned the loss of an opportunity to experience the blessings of our diverse community. Thanks to science, we could potentially see some in-person Pride events scheduled in some parts of the world; however, due to the long-term isolation, inequitable distribution of vaccines, and personal health concerns that might exclude already marginalized individuals in the Queer/LGBTQIA2S+ Community, we are hosting a virtual Pride mixer event on June 6, 2021, at 4 p.m. CDT.
🎟️ Current Harmony Members (Not a current member? Become a member today!)
📅 June 6, 2021
⌚ 4 p.m. Central
Using the Kumospace platform, we will host a virtual pride mixer to foster a sense of community, connection, support, and fun! While this is mostly an unstructured event, we will also share in a toast and a fun scavenger hunt activity.
SIGNATURE COCKTAIL/MOCKTAIL OPTIONS:
Note: We understand each Harmony household will have its own views on the consumption of alcohol for of-age individuals. We invite you to adjust any of the below recipes to fit your needs, taste, and comfort level.
Other beverage ideas: water, juice, soda, mimosas, champagne/prosecco, wine, beer, etc. Your choice!
What to Expect:
All current Harmony members will receive a link to join this virtual event. Upon arrival, you will be prompted to grant access to your device’s webcam and microphone. Once this step has been completed, you will be welcomed into our special Pride-themed space (pictured below). All attendees will be shown as a circular video feed and will navigate throughout the space using the arrow keys or by clicking and dragging.
Around your avatar (webcam feed) will be a secondary, surrounding circle representing your spatial audio range. You can hear anyone inside this circle and they can hear you. Anyone outside the circle is out of “earshot.”
Here is a quick tour of the platform offered by Harmony President Parker Johnson.
We hope you will join us on June 6, 2021, for this event. We can’t wait to see you there! If you aren't a current member of Harmony, it's not too late to join! Become a member today!
