Kia Ora whanau,
We hope you are all well and taking care of yourselves and your loved ones. As you can imagine we have been fielding many questions about Chch Pride and the coronavirus. We have been evaluating the current climate and taking advice from health professionals and the council. Our communities safety is of the utmost importance and we believe we would be reckless if we went ahead with our bigger events that are to be held in a confined environment. We want to make sure we keep infections in Chch to zero and to provide fabulous events where people feel safe.
So it is with a very heavy heart that the Pride Committee have decided to postpone tonights Speed Dating, the Pride Bingo, and the Flappin Fabulous Closing Party. Our smaller events are still going ahead as planned and if anything changes we will make sure to keep you updated.
Please stay safe out there and look after our more vulnerable community members so we can all be healthier and strong for future Pride events (World Pride in June ;P) as soon as we get through this.
Sending you much love.
Chch Pride Committee
