The fate of the annual Pittsburgh Pride events didn’t remain up in the air for very long after the Delta Foundation reported yesterday that they would dissolve. Less than 24 hours since their announcement, the Pittsburgh LGBTQ Coalition announced that they would be hosting the annual festivities in 2021 during a press conference held at noon today.
Their press release read:
“We are pleased to announce that Pittsburgh Pride 2021 will be held Friday, June 4th through Sunday, June 6th. The Pride Parade will be June 5th and step off at 12:30 PM. The LGBTQ+ BBQ will be June 6th.”
“Pittsburgh Pride 2021 will be the first Pride in Pittsburgh thrown in collaboration between LGBTQ+ organizations across Pittsburgh and the Western Pennsylvania region thus ensuring that Pride is an inclusive and safe space for all the members of the LGBTQ+ community. Details on how more organizations can partner in the planning of Pittsburgh Pride will be announced soon.”
“The return to June for Pittsburgh Pride 2021 also brings Pride back to the internationally recognized month of celebration for the LGBTQ+ community. We celebrate Marsha P. Johnson for igniting the Stonewall revolution and the fight for LGBTQ+ rights. Pittsburgh Pride is our way of showing our love and that we stand together as a community.”
“We can’t wait to celebrate all of our community at Pittsburgh Pride 2021. Further details about entertainment, vendor registration, and for the first time, how Pittsburgh Pride 2021 will directly benefit the community are to come.
