Pride season in June may be months away, but it has already been massively disrupted by the outbreak of coronavirus.

As of today, more than 75 events around the world have been forced to cancel or delay plans, with many more still to be announced. As many as 1,000 Prides were expected to take place in Europe alone.

The European Pride Organisers Association (EPOA) is now urging the Pride organisers to make contingency plans and engage with funders and sponsors to talk about financial impact.

“Coronavirus is presenting a new challenge for all governments and organisations, and Pride is no different,” said EOPA president Kristine Garina.

“The unique challenge for Prides is that most are entirely volunteer organisations, where people have to juggle this additional complexity alongside a career or being a full-time carer.

“We’re doing all we can to help Pride organisers navigate through this challenge.”

Scroll down to see a map of locations where Pride parades have been cancelled due to coronavirus, and a complete list of all the events that have been cancelled or postponed so far.

The following list is compiled from information from the European Pride Organisers Association and Attitude.
