Belfast Pride Parade 2020

 

 

The Belfast Pride parade has faced and overcome many challenges over the last 30 years but this year the challenges are unique but we are still determined to the best we can for the LGBT+ community in Belfast. Belfast Pride is a community and a city coming together to celebrate LGBT+ lives and protest for full Equality. We will be hosting the first online Belfast Pride Parade this year and we want as many people as possible to take part by sending a short video.

What will it look like?

Your Parade hosts Trudy Scrumptious and Gareth Woods will present a two hour parade show featuring short videos from a wide range of people who would usually be marching on the streets of Belfast on Pride Day.

When and where:

Pride Day: Saturday 1st August at 1.00pm and 5.00pm online. You can watch it across our Social Media pages, follow us for details.

Who can take part?

All the community groups, LGBT+ support groups, venues, unions, businesses, social groups, groups of friends, individuals and anyone who usually takes part in Belfast Pride as well as anyone who wants to join for the first time.

How can you take part?

You just need to send in a video – 30 seconds – 1 minute is plenty. You can make it with your friends, family, colleagues, team, squad, whoever you want to celebrate Pride with and you can take it on your phone. You can get the Pride colours on early, wish everyone else a Happy Pride, send a greeting, protest, talk about the rights you want do your Pride, your way.

Rainbow Heroes: The theme for Belfast Pride this year is Rainbow Heroes. We want to highlight LGBT+ people who have playing their part in helping us all cope with the Covid-19 situation – frontline workers in Health & Social Care, supermarkets, emergency services, transport and distribution workers, family carers, cleaners, community groups and their volunteers and many more in whatever way you think made a difference. You can send us a short video about your Rainbow Hero or just a photo and why you think they’re a Rainbow Hero. See below for video or email a  photo and your nomination to: rainbowheroes@belfastpride.com

The technical bit:

Well, not really. Videos should be 30 seconds – 1 minute long. If using your smart phone, use the highest resolution setting and film in Landscape only, that’s with the phone on its side. Practice – do a run through and know what you’re going to say to make the best use of the time.

If you plan to use music please only use copyright free music as the sound might be automatically blocked by Social Media platforms on behalf of record companies / artists otherwise, so be creative. If you have something special in mind get in touch and we’ll see what we can do to help and advise you.
