The 2020 Noho Pride Parade should have stepped off on May 2nd. But, due to health concerns about the COVID-19 pandemic, this year’s event was held virtually. 

Lorelei Erisis is an LGBTQ activist with a strong connection to the annual event. Erisis decided to march the route on her own this year. Carrie Saldo spoke with her about her why she felt the need to march and how her community is impacted by the new coronavirus.
