Belfast Pride Parade 2021

The Belfast Pride parade has faced and overcome many challenges over the last 30 years and successfully moved online last year for the first time. This year the parade will be online again as we don’t feel it is safe enough yet for the large scale events of Pride Day. Belfast Pride is about a community and a city coming together to celebrate LGBT+ lives and protest for full Equality. We want as many people as possible to take part in the online Belfast Pride Parade this year by sending a short video.

What will it look like?

We will bring you an online parade show featuring short videos from a wide range of people who would usually be marching on the streets of Belfast on Pride Day.

When and where:

Pride Day: Saturday 31st July at 1.00pm and 5.00pm online. You can watch it across our Social Media pages, follow us for details.

Who can take part?

All the community groups, LGBT+ support groups, venues, unions, businesses, social groups, groups of friends, individuals and anyone who usually takes part in Belfast Pride as well as anyone who wants to join for the first time.

How can you take part?

You just need to send in a video. You can make it with your friends, family, colleagues, team, squad, whoever you want to celebrate Pride with and you can take it on your phone. You can get the Pride colours on early, wish everyone else a Happy Pride, send a greeting, protest, talk about the rights you want. Do your Pride, your way.

The technical bit:

Well, not really. Videos should be 30 seconds – 1 minute long. If using your smart phone, use the highest resolution setting and film in Landscape only, that’s with the phone on its side. Practice – do a run through and know what you’re going to say to make the best use of the time.

Please only use copyright free music as the sound will most likely be automatically blocked by Social Media platforms on behalf of record companies otherwise, so be creative. If you have something special in mind get in touch and we’ll see what we can do to help and advise you.
