We may be out of the closet, and still in the house but…that doesn’t mean our much-celebrated Welsh Pride Season stops while we wait for that lonely Lockdown to lift.
The queer party is still very much on thanks to LGBTQymru – with our first ever Wales Wide Virtual Pride all set for the weekend of July 24 and 25.
This unique online event will celebrate the whole of our community across the whole of our country, bringing together all those living the LGBTQ+ life, and our allies too of course!
Pride Season with its events throughout the season are the highlight of the queer 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.
LGBTQymru aims to do just that, and is calling on all Prides, LGBTQ+ community groups, charities, acts, organisations, and anyone else who wants to get involved, to please come join us.
Wales Wide Virtual Pride will be a weekend of fun, entertainment, information, and education for all the family. The two-dayer, which will see a variety of acts from music to make up tutorials, is free for all to watch, and take part in – across Wales, and wider.
Part of what makes the LGBTQ+ community in Wales so special is its visibility, talent, and readiness, to make sure everyone is connected, even in the most difficult of times.
Thanks to those Welsh Prides, including Barry, Bangor, Rhondda, and Llantwit Major, plus other groups too, including Glitter Cymru, who have already signed up to make this something special.
LGBTQymru, an enthusiastic and energetic collective of respected LGBT+ activists and allies, want the weekender to showcase the best of our cohesive community.
Steering Group Chair Bleddyn Harris, said: “Our mission 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.”
Wales Wide Virtual Pride is a free event run by a not for profit organisation who believe in giving back to our community. If you can help with any donation, or sponsorship, please visit our Go Fund Me page.
