6:30 pm - 8:00 pm
Halifax Pride Community Meeting
we will review plans for the reimagined 2020 Halifax Pride Festival, outline the collaborative planning efforts of our committees and board, gather feedback on these initial steps, and share some of the ways we want to involve our 2SLGBTQ+ community of festival-goers, artists, and partners.
The COVID-19 crisis has forced Halifax Pride to reimagine the festival and the ways it can support our community. While the festival will be vastly different from any we have hosted before, we recognize the continuing opportunity to create an engaging, entertaining, impactful festival. We will seize this opportunity to create shared experiences that follow public health guidelines and resonate with attendees even when we are apart.
We know large public gatherings will not be permitted by public health, therefore large scale events such as the parade will not be possible, but we will explore other ways to offer an engaging and entertaining series of events for the 2SLGBTQ+ community.
