This month, Pride is celebrated world-wide. This year we commemorate Stonewall's 51st year!

In different cities, Pride is held at various times of the year. SunCoast MCC has been blessed and proud to be the founders, hosts and volunteer force that has offered our community two successful, engaging, Venice Pride events in 2018 and 2019.
Now, with COVID-19 hosting a festival this year is less certain. We have determined that trying to plan and execute an outdoor Venice Pride Festival in November 2020, as we have done for the past two years is not practical, with all the uncertainties. We decided to postpone holding a festival until the first quarter of 2021 as we continue to evaluate how things progress in combating the virus. Meanwhile, we are exploring several options for an online Venice Pride that could be hosted this fall along with others in the wider community.
But, right now, it is June, the traditional month for LGBT Pride! So, let’s not be shy, let’s not take a back seat. Let’s be visible and inclusive in wearing our colors, all our pride colors. It is time to hope and celebrate the progress we have made. We will press on globally.

Our victories cannot be destroyed by any setbacks we have now or by any virus.
