Hours Of Video: Bermuda Pride Parade & Forum

September 3, 2019 | 14 Comments

Bermuda’s first ever Pride Parade and celebration took place on Saturday [Aug 31] under a theme of ‘We Belong’, with the event including a parade, live entertainment, food vendors and more.

We have complied all the videos into one article for posterity’s sake, including the video of the forum which was held on the Friday evening, so the videos below span hours of coverage and show a comprehensive look at the island’s first ever Pride Parade.

In an online post after the event, the Bermuda Pride organisers said, “When we first started planning Bermuda Pride 2019 – we hoped we might get 500 people to join us [with crossed fingers for at least 100]. To have been greeted by over 6,000 supporters – well there are no words.

“Our work isn’t done. I’m sure many of you will be pleased to hear that Pride will return in 2020. Between now and then, we want to keep the support alive and continue to show our LGBTQI+ community that We Belong.”

    Please don’t take this the wrong way anyone “even thought i know people will” Wow in my 45 years have never in my life time seen so many white people march for or support anything in Bermuda. Not even Bermuda day parade, marching or coming out for support or even Cupmatch for that matter. Wow.

      It’s a fair point, problem is that this event is now going to be labelled as a white event instead of what it’s really about.

      Question becomes, are white people willing en masse to come out to support other local events. Will they attend Cup Match or international football/cricket, or Bermuda Day parade, or any demonstrations led by some part of the black community?

      Thank you for your racist observation

      • Ironic that everytime someone points out any form of racism is labelled a racist, even though those who benefit and endorce it dont own up to it.
        Get over it.

      Truth

      What is the correct way to take your comment then?

    • There are 2 other times that I can recall were they gathered is against Dr. Brown and Immigration.
      And some of them are the biggest critics when Black People march for Economic and Social Justice and have the gall to have placards on LOVE. Well if it was that much LOVE I gather that no one there was Racist, Prejudice or Biased toward anyone of a different colour or political party.
      And their Poster Child who they who they were shouting out we love you is a Bus Driver, so when he dresses as a queen they love him and when he has on his bus uniform on he is slandered.
      Talk about hypocritcle.
      But thats what privilege is about,when others do it there is a problem but whe we do it its justified. Just like when Obama was elected de Tea Party did everything so he can fail now they have an @$$#0£€ that cant do no wrong in their eyes.

        “And some of them are the biggest critics when Black People march for Economic and Social Justice”

        When, in recent times, has that actually happened?

        The only recent march was the racist anti-immigrant protest in 2016. Why would you expect white people to join a protest in which the protesters were spitting at them and telling them to ‘go back home?’

      • Double S says:

        PS: Your ideology has alot more in common with Trump than Obama,. Think about your hatred for gays and foreigners to begin with.

      • Mike Hind says:

        As per usual, not a word of this is true.

      • Toodle-oo says:

        The usual revisionist claims from you as expected , but I suggest you speak with a cross section of the participants . I have and I could recount their observations and feelings but it would only p*zz you off as it won’t fit your agenda. You already have an arsenal of nasty names for people who look like you but don’t habour your hate in their hearts .

    • question says:

      It’s because everywhere you go there is loud boring reggae and soca music. If I didn’t have to listen to that crap I’d be at more events.

    • truthertz says:

      Do the participants in those activities have a Government that is actively trying to restrict their rights or have violent threats spewed towards them?
