Lincoln Pride cancelled for second year running

Sadly, Lincoln Pride has been cancelled for a second year running because of COVID-19.

The event, which offers a safe space for the county’s vibrant LGBTQIA+ community to come together and express themselves, was cancelled last year in light of the pandemic.

But with the threat of coronavirus still very much a reality, and fundraising for the event having been seriously impacted, the summer event has been cancelled a second time.

“We understand this will be a huge disappointment to many. However, safety is our main priority and holding such a large event in uncertain times is not something we believe to be viable,” the organisers said in a Facebook post.

“Our event is costly and takes many months to plan. Without the guarantee we can go ahead with the full event as normal, and having been unable to conduct our usual fundraising this past year, we do not feel it is possible to put the event on this year.

“We are happy to announce that we are working with the local council and authorities to bring to you some smaller events later in the year to keep the Pride spirit alive in Lincoln, and we are already well under way with planning Lincoln Pride 2022!

“Take care, stay safe and we will see you in 2022, when we expect Lincoln Pride to be fully restored to its former glory! ❤️🧡💛💚”
