Pride Our Way

Virtual Pride Event for the Disabled and Chronically Ill Community


What Is Pride Our Way?

For years, the disabled/chronically ill community has been excluded from Pride events. Not anymore.

Founded by Mary Fashik, Pride Our Way is a two-day virtual event that includes exhibits by disabled artists, drag performances, giveaways, and more. Auto-captioning, visual descriptions, and ASL will be provided at live events. Captions and audio descriptions will be provided for videos. You do not need a ticket if you prefer to just to be an observer at any and all events. 

All are welcome to attend, but allies are asked to respect the space being created for the disabled and chronically ill members of the LGBTQIA+ community.

Events will be simultaneously streamed on YouTube. In the meantime, check out Pride Our Way’s 2022 playlist on YouTube

The Politics of Disability

“The disabled and chronically ill community has been excluded from Pride for far too long due to inaccessibility. Pride Our Way will change that.”
