Orlando Pride has a new date after being postponed due to the impact of Hurricane Matthew.

The category five hurricane, which has killed 1,045 people and displaced thousands more, made its way to Florida just as festivities were about to begin earlier this month.

It will now take place on 12 November at Lake Eola Park.

‘Our board had several days of very difficult decisions to make during the week prior to Matthew reaching Florida,’ said Brian Riha, board president of Come Out With Pride.

‘But once we saw there was high potential for significant damage to Central Florida, it was an easy decision — the safety of our attendees and participants comes first.’

It was expected that many thousands had planned to attend the parade in order to pay tribute to the 49 murder victims and survivors of Pulse. A vigil was also planned for outside the nightclub.

Many Prides around the world have paid tribute to Orlando with cities like San Francisco, Los Angeles, New York City and London holding silences to remember the tragedy.
