LGBTQymru Wants You! |Wales|Queer News

Shout Out to all artists, acts, singers and superstars, to please come and strut your stuff at our first-ever Wales Wide Virtual Pride.

This is the moment you, and we, have all been waiting for – the chance to book your spot at our wonderful weekender on July 24 and 25.

We want you!

And our applications are open, so if you’d like to apply to be a part of this unique, inaugural, event, step this way.

We want as many of our Wales-wide LGBTQ+ family and allies to take part across the two days.

Part of what makes our Welsh Qmmunity so special is its visibility, talent, and readiness, to make sure everyone is connected, even in the most difficult of times.

So whether you’d like to sing, read poetry, perform in drag, tell us your coming out/transition story or something else, we’d love to hear from you.

Interested? Then, please follow this link, telling us what type of contribution you’d like to make and we’ll send you an information pack.

Don’t forget 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.

Wales Wide Virtual Pride 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 summer 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 also calling on all Prides, LGBTQ+ community groups, charities, acts, organisations, and anyone else who wants to get involved, to also please come join us. 

Thanks to those Welsh Prides, including Barry, Bangor, Rhondda, Llantwit Major, Swansea, and Bi Pride – plus other groups too, including Glitter Cymru, and Iris Prize who have already signed up to Keep Qymru Connected.

LGBTQymru Chair Bleddyn Harris, said: “Our mission to create a 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.”

Much thanks for all your support.

Speak soon.

Mrs SVJ.
