Dayton LGBTQIA+ Pride Update
It is with heavy hearts that the Greater Dayton LGBT Center Board of Directors has decided to cancel many of the in-person LGBTQIA+ Pride events for Dayton this year. It would not be PRIDE without a parade, so we are planning a “Reverse Pride Parade” What does that mean? On Saturday August 22nd those groups that typically are in the parade will place a static booth on 2nd Street on the Sidewalks consisting of banners and signs. If they have give-a-ways, they will have runners run those items out to the cars. For our Spectators, we encourage all spectators to decorate their vehicles pridefully and much like an old fashion Cruise-In, drive their vehicles down second street at 5 mph and show their PRIDE. Set up for Booths start at 9 am with the Cruise-In beginning at 10 am to 11 am.
Of course, we can’t just skip recognition of Pride during 2020 so we will be shifting our August 22 celebration from in-person to online. We are still putting plans together, but we will be holding a televised via DATV on channel 5 of Spectrum Cable and on Facebook Live event from 1 pm to 3 pm. The celebration will be similar to our Pride Stage Show featuring local speakers and entertainment. Please stay tuned for more information and plan to join us online on August 22nd! Join US!
