Pender Island Rainbow Convoy & Pride-stream
A DIFFERENT WAY TO CELEBRATE PRIDE IN 2020:
COVID-19 has changed the world, and it is changing how we celebrate Pride on Pender Island.
On Saturday, August 8th, instead of a parade bringing our community together in one place for Pride, we will instead be having a Rainbow Convoy sharing the spirit of Pride throughout the community, while ensuring the safety of participants, and on-lookers by respecting social distancing, all while live-streaming the event to social media.
You are invited to join our Rainbow Convoy as we traverse North and South Pender Islands spreading a message of joy, love, equality, equity, and social justice. Or you are invited to hold your own mini Pride celebration if you have a driveway along the convoy route, or at a suitably safe roadside location. We will have videographers in the convoy to live-stream the mini Pride celebrations as we pass them.
The Rainbow Convoy will be live-streamed to both Facebook and YouTube, and will be interspersed with performances by local artists and guest speakers. You are invited to submit pre-recorded video clips of Pride-relevant performances or personal messages of support for inclusion in the live-streamed event.
