Pride Month to be marked in Bermuda
Pride Bermuda is to join in the worldwide Pride Month for LGBT people.
The group said: “We will use this opportunity to reflect on the unwavering love we must have for ourselves and each other to thrive.”
The group said it wanted to celebrate togetherness, visibility and education with the theme “A Deeper Love” for the June celebrations.
It told the public: “Join us as we express our deeper love and celebrate pride in person on June 30, August 28 and August 29.”
The special events come two years on from the island’s first Pride parade on August 31, 2019.
The event was commemorated on a small scale last year because of Covid-19 health restrictions.
Pride Bermuda said: “We are new to the Pride celebrations, and we have much to be proud of.
“For years, our love was systemically and culturally denied.
“Our choice was either to pretend to be like everyone else or be selective about how and where we presented our innate self.
“Survival depended on living a double life or risking exposing yourself to an unkind reality.”
But the group added: “Time has changed our reality. While our fight for equality on multiple fronts continue, society has become increasingly understanding and accepting of our right to be who we are, love who we want and live as we deserve.”
