We love that despite the pandemic people are coming up with creative ways to fundraise and get involved in our #StillProud campaign. As with many charities, the impact of Covid-19 will have a long-lasting effect on our ability to keep services running. That’s why we rely on the support of individuals, community groups and businesses now more than ever.
When we asked Audrey Barnes, Marketing Manager at Quorum Cyber why they decided to get behind the campaign and fundraise, she told us:
“Each year, the month of June is when we come together to uplift the voices of our LGBTI+ community members, honouring and continuing in the legacy of those who stood up for equal rights in the Stonewall uprising of 1969. In 2020, however, Pride marches and events are being severely limited by the COVID pandemic, impacting the visibility, education, campaign, and fundraising opportunities for LGBTI+ charities. So, this year, we’re partnering with LGBT Youth Scotland to host a virtual pride event, with all funds raised going towards their vital work – and you’re all invited!”
The event will bring folks together from across cybersecurity, tech, and the third sector – along with all who wish to show their Pride with us – for an evening of quizzical fun, hosted by Edinburgh’s own Garry Andrew Mullen, a.k.a. The Roaming Quizman of CC Bloom’s quiz night fame.
Taking place virtually via Zoom on Thursday, 25th June 2020 at 7pm, the #StillProud quiz night will ensure we’re all physically distanced, but socially connected. Make sure you register to attend via the link below!
