As coronavirus restrictions caused in-person pride celebrations and parades to be scaled back or cancelled for the second year in a row, corporations decried their inability to meet outreach targets to the LGBTQII+ market.  “Without PRIDE© merchandising, our sales numbers are way down again this year, heads may roll,” said Donny Notme, SVP of marketing for oil & gas and entertainment giant Chev-it-on. He/his went on to explain that “its an open secret in corporate circles that the real benefits of giving these and other fringe groups civil rights and better jobs is the boost more consumers give to our corporate bottom line.”

THE REAL, ORIGINAL LGBTQ+ PRIDE COMMITTEE© responded that they were doing all they could to support corporate marketing at the in-person covid-safe events and on-line films and drag shows. “We know who butters our bread, and we are bending over forwards as fast as we can to provide forums to get LGBTQ+ dollars into corporate pockets this year,” said Ann Gree-Upyrs, Executive Director TROLP Committee.  Exhibiting the passion for social change and the downtrodden that propelled they/them into their highly paid leadership position, Ann explained: “Of course some people in the community have suffered financial set backs during the pandemic, or even death, but that shouldn’t deter us working towards the primary goal of PRIDE to fully-integrating LGBTQ+ people into the capitalist economy.”
