Here’s the information you need in advance of the parade on Saturday. Please read the official participants guide, accessed from the link above.

Please ensure you dress appropriately for the weather – it looks like it will be warm but overcast, so remember to bring water and sunscreen.

 

COVID-19

All persons participating in the parade must sign the registration form on Saturday morning to confirm they have read the participants guide & have answered ‘no’ to the following 3 questions:

 

1) Today or in the last 10 days have you had any of the following symptoms: high temperature, a new, continuous cough or a loss of, or change to, your sense of smell or taste?

2) Today or in the last 10 days have you been self isolating having been contacted by the NHS Test & Trace services or after returning to/entering the UK?

3) Today or in the last 10 days have you or anyone in your household tested positive for Covid-19?

 

In addition to this, Birmingham LGBT has to provide a risk assessment for the group, and this includes our own COVID-19 safety procedures:

Everyone marching with Birmingham LGBT will need to provide proof of a negative Lateral Flow Test taken within 24 hours of the march. This is the same for staff, volunteers and members of the public.

If you are unable to provide proof of this on the day you will not be able to walk with the group. Mask wearing is not compulsory as we will be outside, however if you would prefer to wear a mask then we are happy for you to do so.
