Dear Star City Pride family,
Star City Pride has been closely monitoring the ongoing Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic. As the situation in our country changes rapidly, we understand there are unexpected challenges facing the Star City Pride community, vendors, and sponsors. Star City Pride has canceled all fundraisers until further notice as we do our part to control the spread of the COVID-19 virus.
Star City Pride is committed to the health and safety of our community. For the upcoming 2020 Star City Pride festival and parade, we are planning for potential contingency scenarios. We will take decisive, informed action as time progresses. At this time, Star City Pride is still scheduled for June 19-20, 2020, but we are also in discussions with the vendor of our festival space, as we consider an alternative date later in the year.
Our board and corporation meetings have continued using conference calls and virtual meeting space. Thankfully, our board is experienced with working remotely and holding virtual meetings, but we realize the extraordinary social distancing measures and ongoing uncertainty are incredibly challenging for everyone.
Although fundraisers have stopped, and the Star City Pride festival and parade face possible postponement (not cancellation), the Star City Pride board wants everyone to know our thoughts are with you, and we hope you are safe and healthy.
SCP Board of Directors
Star City Pride was created to support the LGBTQIA community in Lincoln, Nebraska. Every year in June, allies and members of our community come together to celebrate what Pride stands for and to raise awareness of equality in our city. This annual two day event is not possible without the generous support of our donors and advertisers.
