It might be sunny right now, but the forthcoming Pride weekend looks like it might be a bit of a washout - so here's what will keep you and your friends busy while indoors.
Amazon Prime Video will host a new global Pride Festival this weekend, 'Pride Inside'. The 360° virtual festival which will celebrate the LGBTQIA+ community and their allies, with some recognisable faces from the world of 'RuPaul's Drag Race', as well as four renowned musical artists.
The festival will include musical performances by Betty Who, Vincint, The Aces, and Greyson Chance, as well as 16 drag queens including Manila Luzon, Raja, Monique Heart, Heidi N Closet, Gia Gunn, and the iconic Lady Bunny. The queens will be performing on the main stage of the event, as well as teaching makeup tutorials, and throwing some shade at each other in round-table conversations.
Your drag name is your favourite flower and the last thing you ate… Pitch it to us ?
(We’ll feature the best ones in our Pride series of #PrimeVideoClub coming soon ?)

Celebrity creative director and choreographer Parris Goebel (Savage X Fenty Show) and choreographer Ryan Heffington ('Transparent: Musicale Finale') will also be involved over the weekend, teaching exclusive dance routines.
Be sure to RSVP to the two-day virtual event, taking place this Saturday and Sunday, which you can do so here. You and up to 9 friends can explore the festival together via a peer-to-peer video, and up to two million people can tune into 'Pride Inside' over the weekend.
As part of Pride weekend, Amazon Studios and Prime Video will also be donating to the Black AIDS Institute and the National Queer and Trans Therapists of Color Network charities.
