Sneak Peek at the New 2020 Pride Products from Apple, Reebok & More
Even though Pride Parades have been canceled all over the world due to the COVID-19 pandemic, brands are still keeping the tradition of launching Pride-themed products and accessories.
Apple for example, released two new bands for the Apple Watch, both Pride-themed.
The Pride Edition Sport Band with its rainbow pattern is fairly similar to the one released back in 2016, but it’s still an amazing band.
Apple and Nike also teemed up and created a second band, the Apple Watch Nike Pride Edition Sport Band. The rainbow colors are a bit subtler, yet the effective is quite gorgeous.
As Apple officials explain, the Nike Pride Edition Sports Band helps support vital LGBTQ advocacy groups.
Through this effort, Apple and Nike are proud to support LGBTQ organizations doing vital advocacy and community-building worldwide, including GLSEN, PFLAG, The Trevor Project, Gender Spectrum, The National Center for Transgender Equality, and ILGA World, which brings together more than 1,500 member organizations in more than 150 countries and regions.
Both bands retail for $49 in the Apple Store.

Dr. Marten’s 2020 Pride Boot
Dr. Marten launched their 2020 Pride Boots earlier this month. The Pride Boot retails for $150.
This year, the company donated to The Trevor Project, at suicide prevention and crisis intervention organization for LGBTQ young people.
While you can’t show off these beautiful Pride products in person at parades this year, there are alternatives.
Virtual Pride Parades Are Now A Thing
Vancouver for example, is going to host the Pride celebrations virtually. They have planned a series of virtual events in order to keep everything running in the given conditions. The officials said.
We know that a lot of people look forward to the Pride parade, Pride festival and all of our in-person events every year, so it was a very difficult decision, but obviously it’s the right one in the current context.
Of course, it’s all for the best, but we can’t help but be sorry for it.
In the same style, Dublin will follow, by hosting their virtual celebration in June, after having to cancel the Pride Parade.
The Dublin LGBT Pride Twitter page said.
The first Digital Dublin Pride Festival is to be hosted in June, with a fully interactive virtual Pride Parade and concert. Buildings will still light up for Pride, flags will be flying high across the city and our community will still be there to support each other.
It’s nice to see everyone cares, and they are trying to find alternatives for these uncertain times we’re all going through.
The Pride is not cancelled, we are just bringing it home.
