Orlando Pride has been Postponed

pulsepridepartyOrlando has had some of the worst luck and tragedy this year and it is more than raining on their parade this year it’s being postponed. The gay pride celebration in Orlando that was supposed to remember those who passed from the nightclub tragedy in June will now be held in November. This is because Orlando is under severe weather threat right now with high hurricane winds and possible flooding. You can barely buy bread or groceries or even gas to get around town much less try to make it to a pride parade.

Due to the incoming threat of Hurricane Matthew and the risk that it imposes to Central Florida, the organizers of Come Out With Pride are postponing this weekend’s festivities to November. The safety of participants and attendees is our highest priority.

The Central Florida area is currently facing the possibility of widespread power outages, obstructed roadways, and high demand for Police and Fire services in the period following the storm. While the weather forecast for Saturday is favorable for our event, expected conditions today and Friday will severely impact the ability of our team to set up and prepare the park for a festival. Additionally, many non-local vendors, entertainers and supporting businesses will be unable to participate due to transportation and logistical issues.

With so many in the community looking forward to uniting together at Pride, the Come Out With Pride board is committed to making the event happen at a later time in November. We will be working with officials on alternative plans and will announce the details as soon as possible. Updates will be posted to our website and social media channels as they become available.

Pulse Nightclub in Orlando has organized a Pride afterparty and that will also be postponed but they will hold a small Hurricane party.

Due to weather in Orlando Orlando Pride has been postponed. Weather permitting and guest safety permitting we will be hosting a small party inside The Abbey on October 8th with our Pulse Family. We welcome you to an after hurricane party!!
