FW Pride COVID-19 Announcement:
Over the past few months, COVID 19 has taken the world by storm. We are in unprecedented times with so much uncertainty. We have watched as Prides and other large events around the world have been postponed, cancelled, or held virtually.
After much consideration, looking at the data from the state, and from conversations with local and state health officials, the Fort Wayne Pride Board of Directors has decided it is in the best interest of our LGBTQ community and the greater Fort Wayne area to postpone Pride until September 25th and 26th. We hope that moving the date will allow additional time to see how our community, state, and country is affected by larger group gatherings and life returning to “normal”. We will continue to be in contact with local and state officials to make the best possible decisions moving forward. The health and safety of our community, our allies, and partners is of the utmost importance to all of us. Please be assured that if circumstances require us to not hold a Pride celebration in 2020, we will certainly embrace that option. Fort Wayne Pride has worked for the past 23 years to produce a festival that is an inclusive, safe space where all feel welcome.
As we navigate through these difficult times, the Pride Board of Directors want to say thank you for being patient and supportive. Please know that as we move forward, we will keep you informed of any changes. We urge you to continue following social distancing guidelines, be safe, and know that there is a community out there who cares about you even though we cannot be together just yet.
