The organizer of Bucharest Pride said on Wednesday that the event would be delayed by at least three months due to coronavirus, the first of many LGBT+ rallies likely to be affected. The event, which attracts about 10,000 people, was postponed from May 23 until August or September, said executive director Teodora Ion-Rotaru, as Romania banned events with more than 1,000 attendees after 25 virus cases were confirmed on Monday. “Public safety should really come first at a time like this and I think we as community organisers have a responsibility to think first about our communities and their safety,” she told the Thomson Reuters Foundation. “It’s easier to rejoice at a time when everything is safe and everything feels right for everybody,” she said, adding that a new date for Bucharest Pride was under discussion with city authorities.
