LA Pride’s 50th Anniversary has been postponed indefinitely and Pride festivals around the world either have or will do the same amid the COVID-19 panic.
The LA Pride organisers announced on social media that all events scheduled for June 2020 will be postponed but did not provide a future date for the events.
“Organizers are assessing the situation. More information to be provided around the postponement as details become available”.
As COVID-19 grips the globe and strict restrictions are in place on large public gatherings to avoid transmission, gay festivals and ski weeks have been cancelled so far in Munich, Gran Canaria, Mammoth Lakes, Amsterdam, Miami, and Berlin.
Amid the earlier stages of the pandemic, before the public health restrictions for the virus were announced, the Australian Gay & Lesbian Mardi Gras was held in Sydney in late February, which saw thousands of international guests mingle with Australian revelers.
