The team behind the festival says, "We were really excited to deliver the Pink Loerie and LGBTQ+ revival for 2020 but we cannot be irresponsible in delivering an event that will not be attended or place people's lives at risk."

"We will be confirming the new date in 2020 from our website and pages. This will be based on the trajectory of the coronavirus and how it affects the world and South Africa," adds the team.

Attendees are encouraged to place accommodation and flights on hold until further notice. "We encourage our members, followers and festival goers to keep their chin up in this time that the whole world is seeing. Note that we will come back from this stronger and better," concludes the team.
