JACKSONVILLE, Fla.River City Pride, in coordination with the City of Jacksonville, rescheduled its Pride parade after the original October date was postponed due to Hurricane Ian.

The parade will begin at 2 p.m. on Nov. 20, 2022 — a day that also honors the memory of the transgender people whose lives were lost in acts of anti-transgender violence: Transgender Day of Remembrance (TDOR).

“We are very excited about the city working with us to successfully get the reschedule planned for that day because now our 2022 Pride parade will be taking place on Transgender Day of Remembrance,” Travis Guthrie, President of River City Pride, said.
