Yes! Social Ketchup and Local Samosa are back with the 2nd edition of Pride Live Fest ’21 and here’s everything you need to know.

June is the month of Pride and it’s celebrated to memorialize the Stonewall riots in the USA back in 1969. This has continued to be seen as a month that highlights and talks about the struggles, issues, accomplishments, and everything in between for the queer community. It’s the month that reminds us about the existence of this beautiful community and the great deal of work that they’re doing. While Pride month is for the community, it’s not just celebrated by them but by their allies from society as well. And that’s precisely what we’re doing this June at Social Ketchup and Local Samosa. Our 2nd edition of Pride Live Fest ’21 is here and we’re uber excited!

Social Ketchup and Local Samosa (from the house of Social Samosa Network) present the Pride LIVE Fest as an initiative to normalize conversations around the LGBTQIA+ community. We intend to celebrate the month of Pride by creating informative and engaging content for the LGBTQIA+ community to come together in a safe space.

Scheduled on June 18, 2021, this virtual fest intends to bring the community together on one common forum to facilitate an exchange of thoughts and views in a safe space.

After the amazing maiden fest last year, this year’s Pride LIVE Fest is going to be an astounding experience as we will get to witness inspiring stories, panel discussions, AMAs, virtual gigs. All in all, it’s going to be an incredible evening of love, knowledge and support!
