What are the options?
Option 1. Just cancel already. Forget 2020 and hope 2021 will be somewhat normal. The Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health published a study in Science Magazine projecting social distancing until 2022 and even 2024!
Option 2: Postpone. But when? Calendars are full already. You can’t cramp half a year in an already busy other half a year. Can Antwerp, Brussels and Spa-Francorchamps cope?
Option 3. Grand Prix behind closed doors for F1 and only small, spread out events for the Belgian Pride and Antwerp Pride. Zwolle Pride in The Netherlands is opting for this avenue. Think out of the box. Go digital. Stream debates about the future of pride and SOGIE issues. SOGIE stands for sexual orientation, gender identity and expression. Stream the party’s.
Organising committees have their work cut out.
