As you may already know, "PRIDE" is a term used to promote the self-affirmation, dignity, equality, and increased visibility of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer (LGBTQ) people as a social group. Every year, many cities and countries set aside a period of time to observe and promote Pride, with parades and other events designed to recognize the impact LGBTQ+ people have had in the world. Pride month celebrations take place at different times around the world, but many countries celebrate it in June to commemorate the 1969 Stonewall riots in New York City, a pivotal moment in modern LGBTQ+ social movements. Today is June 1, 2021, marking the first year that Mika Fan Club will be observing Pride Month, with an eye to amplifying the voices of our LGBTQ+ members. While we plan to celebrate Pride all month, we're designating next week, June 6 through June 12, as MFC Pride Week, and will have a number of special activities. Among the highlights will be a few competitions and giveaways, and a PRIDE-themed edition of our weekly Mika Fan Club Instagram Live. If you'd like to participate in MFC's Pride celebration, there are a number of things you can do. For our LGBTQ+ members: if you have a story about how Mika/his music has affected you -- perhaps he's inspired or uplifted you in some way, is part of your coming out story, or possibly just helps you celebrate in your daily life -- please share that with us either here in this thread or on Instagram with the hashtag #MFCPride, and we will share those stories on social media. Additionally, if you are an LGBTQ+ musician or performer who would be interested in performing a short piece for the MFC Insta Live, please let us know. For everyone: if the idea of Pride inspires you to create art of some kind, please share that with us on social media with the hashtag #MFCPride and we'll repost you. And when we say "art" we don't just mean drawing or painting -- it could be photography, dance, poetry, music... you get the idea. Throughout the week, we'll also share some useful resources for LGBTQ+ members and allies.
According to this article, Mika is doing a live stream benefit concert for Beirut next month: Mika stages live stream benefit concert ‘I Love Beirut’ Mika announces the ‘I Love Beirut’ benefit concert, which will be performed on Saturday 19 September and will be live-streamed across four time zones via YouTube. Tickets cost £10 / $10 / €10 and will be available from Ticketmaster alongside the GoFundMe campaign, where people can make additional donations to the cause with 100% of all proceeds being split across Red Cross Lebanon and Save the Children Lebanon. Tickets go on sale at 9am BST / 10am CET on Monday 24 August. This intimate performance has been initiated by Lebanese born singer Mika after he was profoundly affected by the scale of devastation from the explosion in Beirut docks and its impact on the people of the city. Following on from his ‘Love Letter to Beirut’ (see note to editors below) which he wrote directly in the aftermath of the explosion. In an effort to do more he has created ‘I Love Beirut’, an event to raise funds to help those who have been affected by the devastating explosion. Mika comments: “After all the years of civil war, financial crisis and political upheaval, the news of the tragic explosion was unbelievable. Although far away, my heart broke for the families losing their homes, their livelihoods and their loved ones in this catastrophe. I wanted to do something to help in any small way I can. That is why I am staging a live stream concert in aid of the people of the city. Beirut has been through so much and the resilience and strength the Lebanese people is undeniable. I have no doubt that the city will recover and the unique life of this magical city will resume once again. Beirut is the place of my birth, is part of me and will always be in my heart. ‘I ❤️ Beirut’. The Lebanese United Nations team has reported the explosion was like 15 years of war in 15 seconds, comparing its impact to the devastation from the country's civil war that lasted from 1975 to 1990. Miles from the blast site apartments are wrecked and families left homeless. It's estimated 300,000 people do not have homes fit to live in, as Lebanon now has to undertake a single recovery effort of unprecedented scale. Hospitals in Beirut are now overrun with wounded people, with some being referred to Tripoli, 50 miles to the north of Beirut, for treatment. The destruction of Beirut’s port will devastate the country further as it relies heavily on imports for its essential supplies. Red Cross Lebanon and Save the Children Lebanon are working around the clock to help those on the ground affected by the blast. Donations will fund immediate emergency response and wider long-term rehabilitation.
