Pride 2020: 1-12 Sept

Virtual Parade March

The Parade March is an integral part of what Pride is, so our Virtual Parade will be a special part of our online festival in September.

Join us to celebrate, be visible, be loud and be proud.

The parade march is a bold statement for equality and diversity, to celebrate our community and to show that hatred and prejudice have no place in our city, or anywhere. We want our virtual event to be no different so get creative, wave those flags, make banners and placards (no swear words please!) and let’s raise our virtual voices as we continue to fight for true equality for all.

Let’s remember where we’ve come from, celebrate where we are and keep fighting for a future of true equality for all.

We’ve seen horrific incidents take place overseas and backwards steps on hard-fought changes in policy overturned. Let’s be a beacon for those many who cannot be out in their countries, sadly it is still illegal to be gay in 70 countries and is punished by death in 12.

Get Involved

The virtual parade will be streamed on Saturday 12 Sept BUT as Sat 11 July would have been our usual Pride Day why not still get your Pride outfits on and record your images / videos so we get to celebrate twice! Don’t worry if you can’t do it on the 11th, you have until 2nd August 2020 to submit your footage.

Would you have been hula hooping in the parade? Carry on! Or you could wave the LGBT+ flag that showcases your identity and community. Take a picture of you with your banner just like you would on the streets or show off that incredible Pride outfit and look you had planned.

If you are not able to be visible on social media please feel free to wear a mask or send a picture of your placard.

Please follow all government social distance guidelines for group entries.
