TUCSON, Ariz. (KGUN) — With COVID-19 cases still a concern, Tucson Pride announced Friday that the 'Annual Pride in the Desert 2021' events will be postponed to next year.

Last month, the nonprofit announced it would celebrate diversity, empowerment, and acceptance with a weekend-long celebration Oct. 1-3, but has since decided to postpone those events until fall 2022. Those events are rescheduled for Oct. 2022; however, dates have not yet been listed.

The nonprofit says with large group gatherings, they do not feel it would be safe for the community to come together at this time.

Additionally, Tucson Pride will continue its planning for the '44th Annual Pride in the Desert' next year.
