A group of ten LGBTI people working on Antarctica, decided to celebrate the first Pride at the South Pole. The ten people are working on the United States’ McMurdo Station about 850 miles (1368kms) from the South Pole.,’ The group decided to take a photo with the rainbow flag ahead of June’s Pride month. By June, the continent is shrouded in darkness 24 hours a day. So the group had to get the photo before then. ‘Why not take this photo and let people see that there’s queer representation—even at the end of the earth,’ Shawn Waldron  told New Now Next. The LGBTI workers at the Station host queer events every couple of weeks. They plan to hold a bigger and official Pride event in June.
