The 30th Annual Belfast Pride Festival will take place from Friday 23 July to Sunday 1 August. Once again this year’s Belfast Pride Festival and Parade will be a virtual one due to Covid-19. The parade will take place on Saturday 31 July on-line at 1pm and again at 5pm.

This year’s online parade will feature recorded videos and messages from groups with live interviews running in sequence in a parade order. You can watch it across Belfast Pride’s social media platforms Belfast Pride | Diverse – Equal – Proud.

For this year’s virtual parade NIPSA has produced its own short video. Click here to view it.

As the newly appointed General Secretary I am attaching my video message to all our LGBTQI+ members.

In line with the objects of NIPSA which is to promote equal opportunities for all members the General Council wish to encourage branches and members to take part in the on-line activities.

General Secretary (Designate)
