Amazon is celebrating Pride Month with a virtual festival that you can access this weekend only! In support of organizations The Black AIDS Institute and the National Queer and Trans Therapists of Color Network, the 'Pride Inside' virtual festival will feature musical performances, drag queen appearances, and more. This event is much more than just a livestreamed concert, as viewers are able to enter a totally immersive virtual concert space where you can interact with friends over video chat, get beauty tips from drag queens, explore the festival grounds, and even make your own t-shirt while you're there which Amazon will ship to your home free-of-charge.

Along with a performance by the crazy-talented girl band The Aces, as well as Betty Who, Vincint, and Greyson Chance, special guests are scheduled to appear throughout the various venues inside the virtual festival, such as drag icon Lady Bunny and RuPaul's Drag Race alum like Manila Luzon, Heidi N Closet, Monique Heart, Raja, and Gia Gunn. You'll find makeup tutorials, round-table conversations, and even a look at some of Amazon Prime's best original shows like Transparent and _The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel.

So many of Amazon's best benefits come from being an Amazon Prime member, and while we can't say enough how you should sign up for a free 30-day trial to check out the service for yourself, you do not need to be a Prime member to access this event. You don't even need to sign into an Amazon account, but you will need to make an account on the Prime Video Pride Inside website.

Amazon's 'Pride Inside' virtual festival grounds are open now through Sunday night, June 28!
