Miss Jason reveals date of Isle of Wight Pride 2021

July 20, 2020

Miss Jason, a patron of Isle of Wight Pride, made a special visit to the island last week to announce next year’s Isle of Wight Pride will take place on Saturday, July 17, 2021, and will once again be supported by Hovertravel.

Whilst this year’s Isle of Wight Pride was cancelled due to the coronavirus pandemic, organisers are inviting the community to post on its Facebook page (@IWPride) their memories from previous Prides on the Island or tell them what Isle of Wight Pride means to you and dress up for the occasion. Five lucky posts will each receive a pair of VIP tickets for next year’s IW Pride, including a VIP Hovertravel Pride Experience!

The trustees said ‘We are disappointed we can’t be out and about celebrating Isle of Wight Pride with the LGBTQ+ and Island community.  So, we are delighted and welcome the news that Hovertravel have agreed to continue their support and to partner us in 2021.  

‘It means we can move forward with plans for next year, which subject to diaries will feature Cheryl Hole, one of the first contestants on RuPaul’s Drag Race UK who was booked to appear this year.

‘We also hope to brighten the day with shared memories and alternative ways to celebrate today on Facebook.’
