It was announced last month that due to numbers of volenteersbeing to low, the 2019 Isle of Wight Pride would have to be canceled. This of course caused upset and dismay across the Island!

It, however has just been announced that our Islands community has pulled togeather and the troops have been rallied! The show, WILL go on! Isle of Wight Pride will take place in Ryde on the weekend of July 20 and 21…

In a statement to the County Press the Pride IOW organisers said – “The 2019 event will build on the legacy created from the Island’s first Pride in 2017, and the hosting of UK Pride last year, none of which would have been possible without the dedicated work and passion of a committed group of people, including the former trustees who had a vision for what needed to be done.”
