Here's what Baton Rouge Pride is planning this Pride Month
It’s officially Pride Month. After more than a year without Pride Month festivities, members of the Baton Rouge LGBTQ+ community are eager to get back to big parades, concerts and celebrations—but they may have to wait a little bit longer for those local events.
Baton Rouge Pride canceled the annual Pride Fest for 2021, which normally takes place downtown. BR Pride Chair Chris Bradford says it’s a combination of indoor capacity event restrictions and the uncertainty surrounding vaccine availability that existed earlier this year while the group was planning its events.
“We really didn’t want to have to plan something and then back out,” Bradford says. “Right now, we’re rebuilding and reimplementing.”
