PRIDE RHITHWIR CYMRU
WALES-WIDE VIRTUAL PRIDE
In response to Covid 19 lockdown, and in the absence of any other all-Wales on-line Pride events, LGBTQymru formed to bring about the first-ever Wales-Wide Virtual Pride which we launched in May and delivered in July 2020. LGBTQymru was formed by a group of volunteers as a not for profit group.
Our mantra was, and continues to be, ‘for the community, by the community’.
As a newly established group, we were delighted (and extremely proud) with our success which saw:
over 30,000 views on our channels;
over £3,000 raised for community groups and grassroots projects in Wales; and,
the communities of Wales all together, all at once, all in one space.
If you scroll down, you will get to see all of the amazing people involved in this first-ever event before heading over to watch it in its entirety.
What started as no more than a message between friends went on to becoming the first-ever Wales-wide Virtual Pride, and we couldn't have done it without the support and dedication of all those involved.
So, thank you.
Thank you for believing, thank you for contributing, and thank you for tuning in.
You've inspired us to continue to make a connect, support, and celebrate the Qommunities of Wales in the hope that, even when we find ourselves far apart, there's always a place in which we are seen, in which we exist, in which we can be ourselves.
