Perthshire Pride organisers cancel 2020 festival

Perthshire Pride organisers have announced that this summer’s celebrations will not go ahead as planned.

The festival had been set to take place in Perth city centre on August 8.

However, organisers feel that this is too soon for participants to be able to feel safe congregating.

Having been set to be held for the third consecutive year, large numbers would have been guaranteed at the popular event.

Last year, thousands took part in the Pride Parade, including Hollywood legend Sir Ian McKellen.

A spokesperson said: “After close and continuous review of the Covid-19 situation, it is with a heavy heart Perthshire Pride have decided to cancel our 2020 Pride event on August 8.

“We always strive to create a safe and inclusive space at our Pride events and truly believe we would not be able to achieve this if we continued with our date.

“Always the optimists here at Perthshire Pride, we wanted to wait that little bit longer in case any major developments in the situation changed but as lockdown is extended and confidence of attending large events is shaking, we believe this is the right decision.

“The safety and enjoyment of our participants is at the forefront of any event we plan and this will never change.

“We will now shift our efforts into making the 2021 Pride even bigger and better to make up for lost time. In the meantime, we will continue to have online content and events until we can meet up again.”
