A big thanks to everyone who talked, performed and / or attended any of the Trans Pride NI events in 2019 and helped to make it such an amazing day!
Trans Pride NI’s number one priority is the health and safety of everyone who attends or volunteers at our events. We have therefore made the responsible decision to cancel Trans Pride NI this year, due to the COVID-19 outbreak. Nearly half of the people who attended Trans Pride NI were disabled and will therefore be greatly impacted by the UK Government’s social distancing and isolation guidelines, which will be in place for the next 12 weeks at least. Trans Pride NI does not wish to put any vulnerable group at increased risk of contacting COVID-19 and will therefore not be holding a mass social gathering this year.
We have been working very hard planning Trans Pride NI for 2021!
The provisional plan is to assemble at Writer’s Square from 1.30pm. Then we will have a Trans Pride March to Belfast City Hall, leaving Writer’s Square at 2.30pm.
We should arrive at Belfast City Hall to have a family friendly Trans Pride Rally, inflatables and face painting from 3pm. Please bring your own reusable cups.
We hope to have a Variety Night at the Black Box, featuring trans and queer performers for adults.
We really hope to have a Health Fair and Art Exhibition at Belfast City Hall featuring trans – friendly businesses, organisations and trans art work.
The Rainbow Project will hopefully have a trans – friendly swimming session as part of the festival and TransgenderNI should be hosting a clothes swap.
We are also looking out for drag queens and a venue to host a Drag Queen Story Time as part of the festival.
We would like to work with a local church to host a Trans Pride Service.
