Gary A. Van Horn, president of the Delta Foundation, says the location change was made due to overwhelming success and attendance of the 2019 events.

“Shifting Pittsburgh Pride to July means we are no longer in conflict with Philly Pride, Boston Pride, LA Pride, and Capital Pride in Washington DC for attendees, speakers, and entertainers,” said Van Horn.
Gov. Tom Wolf also supports the big moving saying, “We are excited to host Pittsburgh Pride and the Delta Foundation in Pittsburgh’s ‘crown jewel’—Point State Park—and look forward to yet another successful event for the LGBTQ community and its allies.”
Penn Avenue and Liberty Avenue, between Stanwix Street and Commonwealth Place, will also be used for next year’s festivities.MORE NEWS: Somerset County Salary Board Suspends Jeffrey Thomas' Salary Amid Sexual Assault Charges
