Delta variant cancels Pride Parade

Thursday, August 12, 2021 by Tai Moses

Bowing to the reality of the rapidly worsening Covid spike, the organizers of the 2021 Austin Pride Parade, which was scheduled to return on Saturday, Aug. 14, after a year’s absence, announced “with an unimaginably heavy heart” that the popular event is postponed until future notice “due to Delta.” The press release explains that the decision to cancel the parade and the street party “was made for the safety of the community and city,” and concludes, “There is only one way out of this, and that is together. Please, #getvaccinated, #maskup, #socialdistance until we get this in check again.”
