The Sacramento LGBT Community Center, which annually produces Sacramento Pride, confirmed today that the Sacramento Pride March and Festival will not take place in the traditionally in-person format this June 13-14. “The health and safety of our community is our top priority and while we are encouraged by lower COVID-19 infection rates and an increase in vaccinations, the Pride March and Festival require many months of planning and there is still too much uncertainty to safely gather tens of thousands of people as we did prior to the pandemic,” said Center CEO David Heitstuman.
We also understand how important LGBTQ+ visibility and the opportunity for community to feel connected through Pride is this year after such a long period of isolation. We are therefore pleased to announce that we will be celebrating Pride in Sacramento in June with a series of virtual programs and small scale in-person Pride month events produced by community organizations and businesses throughout the region in partnership with Sacramento Pride.
For more than 40 years the Center has supported the health and wellness of the most marginalized. As we return to a sense of normalcy we want to assure you that the health and safety of our clients, staff, and community are of paramount importance.
Please, if you are able, consider a donation to our Center Emergency Fund to help us meet the increased and changing needs of our community from the wake of COVID-19. No gift is too big or too small to bring resources, hope, relief, and support to our LGBTQ+ community now and in the future.
Throughout the month of Pride, the Sacramento LGBT Community Center is dedicated to the health, safety, and wellness of our community. All events will have COVID-safe protocols following state, county, and city guidelines. We want to thank all of the local businesses, organizations, and community members who have dedicated themselves to helping make these small scale Pride-centered events possible. While we hope to return to a sense of normalcy soon, we want to remind folx to:
