Bermuda Pride To Be Observed This Saturday

August 4, 2020 | 2 Comments

The Bermuda Pride 2020 will be observed on Saturday evening [Aug 8] with the event organisers saying that their ”aim this year is to create a space for reflection.”

A spokesperson said, “Bermuda Pride 2020 will be observed on the evening of Saturday, August 8th. The organizers continue to work with the Ministry of National Security to obtain an exemption from the regulations limiting the number of people that can congregate.

“If the exemption is granted further details of the event will be published, and participants will be asked to attend with masks and to observe social distancing.

Highlights from last year’s Bermuda Pride Parade

“This year’s celebration will look very different to last year’s, and that’s okay. Given what’s happening globally both with the pandemic and stemming from the events in the United States that have energized discussion around continuing racial inequity, our aim this year is to create a space for reflection. August 8th has been chosen for the date of this reflection because it coincides with the date that protections for ‘sexual orientation’ were added to Bermuda’s Human Rights Act.

“The challenges and achievements of Bermuda’s LGBTQI+ community are part of a broader nexus of challenges and struggles. This year’s Bermuda Pride seeks to highlight that singular community we are all part of.”

    While I support the Pride Celebration, I think due to the pandemic the celebration should be done virtually. It will be safer. Why put people at risk in large numbers? Celebrate next year in person when it is safe to do so.
