Set up an epic viewing station

? Be sure to find a large computer monitor, set up your screencast to the television, and/or connect your computer to an outdoor projector with a sheet for a screen.
Setting up additional chairs and places to sit (pillows and blankets can help!) will also ensure everyone can watch with utmost comfort.

Don’t send guests home empty-handed
Give your guests a little party favor to take home as a piece of remembrance and a thank you for attending.
Might we suggest finding a way for guests to create their own personalized Pride flag?
Or maybe some stickers or sunnies from our 2021 Stay Proud. Stay Connected. collection?
