First Ever Wales Wide Virtual Pride To Take Place In July


LGBTQymru are staging the first ever Wales Wide Virtual Pride over the weekend of July 24th and 25th.

The unique online event aims to celebrate the whole community across the whole of our country and bring together all those living the LGBTQ+ life and their allies, in Wales.

LGBTQymru Chair Bleddyn Harris said: "Pride Season with its events throughout the season are the highlight of the LGBTQ+ calendar. And with our community feeling even more disconnected and dispersed, as we see our social events suffering those Corona Virus cancellations, now is the time to show solidarity. "

A number of panel discussions will be taking place including one titled "A Better Community is Within REACH", which will be looking at the need to provide spaces, platforms and opportunities for LGBTQ+ people of different Races, Ethnicities, And Cultural Heritages (REACH).

Others include: "Can I Get An Amen", centred around faith and, ‘Surviving The Scene", looking at the support available for those living with HIV in Wales.

The Wales wide event will be a weekend of fun, entertainment, information and education for all the family and will be free for all to watch and take part in.

Content and Contributions Manager Hannah Isted said: "Our mission is to create unified approach to Pride across Wales. With a wider focus being on celebration and education, we really want to connect the fabulous LGBTQ+ community of Wales and, during a time where we’ve maybe never felt further apart, bring us all together, all across Wales, all at once."

Pride groups from across Wales have all been invited with Barry, Bangor, Rhondda, Llantwit Major, Valley, and Powys already confirmed. Other groups have already signed up including, Glitter Cymru, BiCymru, and Iris Prize LGBT Film Festival, which should make this the most must see digital Pride of Season 2020.
