LCR Pride Foundation have followed the sad news that this years Pride event will not be taking place with an exciting announcement unveiling this years theme: From Now On. The organisation say the theme highlights the challenges still faced by the LGBT+ community and is their most activism and community-focused title since being established in 2019.
On the back of announcing From Now On, Pride are appealing for people to complete a survey to identify the changes still needed to support the LGBT+ community and advance their rights after a year which has presented may setbacks.
The survey, which will inform the foundation’s programme of activity, is part of what director Andi Herring has labelled a “call to action to the region’s LGBT+ community and its allies – individuals and organisations – to step up and do their part.”
The theme underpins a full digital programme to be announced in the coming months which will include the return of the digital iteration of the Film With Pride programme along with virtual interviews, panel discussions, Q&A sessions and smaller in-person events. LCR Pride Foundation will also be launching online resources to support people’s pledges and help better engage in activism to support the community.
