Austin Pride announced it would be pulling the plug on this weekend's parade. The parade and festivities on Fourth Street, scheduled for Saturday, Aug. 14, will be postponed until further notice.
"It is with an unimaginably heavy heart that we have to announce our parade and street party, scheduled for this Saturday, are postponed for an indeterminate time,” Austin Pride said in a press release.
Pride said that in order to survive, it will be working toward a path forward with sponsors, participants, partners and community stakeholders.
“Pride organizations across the nation are suffering the same heavy blows. But we are determined to stand strong. You are too important … Pride is too important to allow ourselves to be defeated. If we come together as a community, we can find a way to thrive,” said Austin Pride President Micah Andress.
