Northern Pride Online
At the heart of the event will be a “virtual march” where people are being encouraged to send in images or videos of past Pride events they have attended.
These will then be edited together to create a Pride march which people will be able to watch on the day.
The march will be part of a full day of entertainment and education which can be viewed on social media platforms, covering all of the various aspects which would be part of a Pride celebration.
That includes performances on the main stage and from Curious Arts and Be Scene, plus content from all of the festival zones – health and wellbeing, family and youth and sport.
The event will end with a virtual candlelit vigil, followed by an official after party.
Chair of Northern Pride, Ste Dunn, said the organising committee felt it was important to still mark Pride in some way.
