Sharing LGBTQ+ Stories Through Live Streaming
Live streaming is the best way to share thoughts and ideals for certain social issues such as LGBTQ+ rights. These BeLivers bring stories, issues, and activities to promote equality, love, and pride in the community through live streaming.
Check out these awesome streamers who use BeLive to celebrate life within the LGBTQ+ community and acceptance with allies.
Project Pride SRQ
Executive director Joshua Beadle hosts this non-profit organization’s live shows to collaborate with and interview LGBTQ+ businessmen, citizens, as well as allies within the Sarasota, FL area. The group shares news and important updates about topics concerning the community through its Facebook page as well.
The group also streamed a memorial for the Orlando Pulse Shooting, interviewing the club’s former owner and founder of onePulse Foundation, Barbara Poma.
Project Pride SRQ also welcomes volunteers and donations to fund community-related projects and activities.

Los Angeles Blade and Washington Blade
Host Michael K. Lavers not only discusses largely known LGBTQ+ issues within Los Angeles and Washington, he also brings to light unique experiences by other LGBTQ+ individuals through live streams and online live chats on Facebook.
The Los Angeles Blade, together with the Ariadne Getty Foundation, started a recurring live show on Facebook, Blade Pride Chats, which features coming out stories and talks with community members who run businesses, manage charities, and more. Los Angeles and Washington Blade also conducted live chats with LGBTQ+ asylum seekers and migrants to talk about their experiences.
Watch this Washington Blade interview with Cuban gay journalist Yariel Valdes Gonzales. He details his experience being detained by ICE and enduring inhumane conditions for almost a year.
This volunteer-based organization supports the LGBTQ+ members living and working in Hamilton, ON, Canada. Because of the recent pandemic where everyone is being encouraged to stay home, the group started the Digital Pride Hamilton 2020 where they showcase LGBTQ+ members through a Facebook Live series. The live broadcasts feature the community’s on-going journey to equality and acceptance as well as the Black Lives Matter movement.
LGBTQ+ Spectrum of Findlay
Founded in 2012, LGBTQ+ Spectrum of Findlay is determined to promote interactions in a safe environment for the queer community in Findlay, OH. The non-profit organization conducts activities for the benefit of individuals in the surrounding areas no matter the race, sexual orientation, gender identity, social status, or religion.
Some of the non-profit organization’s activities include picnics, special gatherings, and support groups. The group has also utilized live streaming on their Facebook page to share stories and show support for fellow LGBTQ+ such as It’s Drag Queen Story Time and interviews.

Equality, acceptance, and love shouldn’t just be celebrated only on Pride Month. They should be fought for every day and these organizations do just that for the LGBTQ+ community in their areas.
Fortunately, live streaming has changed the way issues are being raised. More and more stories are shared through social media broadcasts and BeLive continues to help in making sure they are shown and heard.
