The Channel Islands Pride party is fast approaching! Hosted by Liberate, this will be the 3rd time Guernsey has held the CI Pride celebration, bringing LGBTQ+ people and their allies together. Pride events are fundamentally focused on community and welcome visitors of all ages to the fun – and nobody wants the buzz to end too early! So, for the 1st time, #CIPride2020 will be opening the doors to an Under-18’s After Party!
Between 9pm to 11pm on Saturday 12 September, the Market Buildings will be transformed into a very unique environment filled with ‘silent’ music and dancing for LGBTQ+ young people and their friends to party! The Street will be offering mocktails at a bar in the venue, and volunteers from the Youth Commission will be there to keep everyone safe and sound so that party-goers can let loose in confidence! Tickets for this event are £10 (plus booking fee) and can be purchased here. Liberate will also be offering these at a special discounted rate of only £2.50 at their stall on the 22nd of August at the Guernsey Together Celebrations held in Saumarez Park.
Pride is, first and foremost, a free and inclusive community event and Liberate would like to invite everyone to attend.
Ellie Jones is the Youth Commissions LGBTQ lead and she says ‘if any young people in Guernsey would like to get involved with Pride this year, please pop along to our next LGBTQ+ Youth Network meet up at our head office by the Performing Arts Centre on Tuesday 1st September 2020 at 4pm’.
