GLASGOW’S Pride procession has been rescheduled to allow for a physical event in September.

LGBT+ communities in the city will take part in one of only three such marches planned across the UK this year.

The march will proceed on September 4, having been cancelled in 2020 due to the pandemic.

Daniel Syme, chairman of the organising committee, said: “Covid-19 has been so tough for everyone, but particularly the LGBT+ communities as we have seen a large increase in hate crimes in Scotland and also the rise of brutality and removal of legal rights across eastern Europe.

“It is no surprise that LGBT communities have seen some of the sharpest rises in mental health decline and, tragically, suicides.

“It is therefore right that we hold a march to show people they are not alone.”
