Andi Herring, founder of the LCR Pride Foundation, which delivers Pride in Liverpool among other LGBT+ events across the Liverpool City Region, said: “We are closely monitoring the situation regarding COVID-19 and following Liverpool City Council, government and World Health Organisation (WHO) advice with regard to any LCR Pride Foundation-managed events.
“While the situation is clearly concerning, Our first public event and flagship, Pride in Liverpool, is set to take place on Saturday 25th July. This is in the months beyond current guidance and, as such, we will not be making any immediate decisions. We will, however, be contingency planning and continuing to work with our partners and sponsors to plan a safe and successful event.
“Our board and event management team are reviewing our position regularly and implementing plans in accordance with any updates to government and WHO advice, as well as guidance from the European Pride Organisers Association (EPOA). On current advice we are optimistic that Pride in Liverpool and our annual March with Pride will go ahead. Any changes will be communicated as soon as possible.
