Stockport Pride 2020
It is with great sadness that we have to announce that Stockport Pride 2020 in Stockport Market Place this July has been cancelled.
The organisers have been closely monitoring the situation regarding the COVID-19 outbreak,
The welfare of all those attending Stockport Pride is important. It is not currently clear whether it would be safe to continue with the event on due to be held on Sunday 26th July 2020. For this reason the organisers have made the decision not to go ahead as planned.
The raffle we had planned for this year's event, and the accompanying design competition has also been cancelled.
Please remember that if you are struggling and need support at this time, there are a number of telephone helplines aimed at the LGBTQ+ community. The Stockport Forward LGBT+ Helpline is available on 07590 087107. You can also call the LGBT Foundation on 0345 3303030 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
It's important at this time that everyone concentrates on their own wellbeing.
Stockport Pride will continue to promote equality, diversity and inclusion, and to continue making a positive difference in the local LGBTQ+ community.
Thank you to everyone for their continued support. We hope to see you again soon.
The Stockport Pride Team
