This year we are giving you the chance to let us know who you want as a Grand Marshal for the Pride Festival 2014.
As you all know Anna Grodska was an amazing Grand Marshal for 2013 who put in so much time and effort and helped us ensuring the voice of equality was heard.
Now we want you to send us on the name of the person who you think would fit this great role, and what organisation or groups they work with. Please send us your suggestions to PR@dublinpride.ie with the subject line “Grand Marshal 2014″. Closing date for suggestions is 27th of December 2013.
To plan the best possible festival in 2014, we need input from and dialogue with the community. We have organised two Open Evenings this November;
Date : Tuesday 12 & 19 November
Time : 6:00pm
Place: Outhouse, 105 Capel Street.
The Open Evenings will explain the structure of Dublin Pride and provide information on its operations and finances. Most importantly, however, the Open Evenings will provide an opportunity for members of the community to contribute to the vision of Dublin Pride. We hope for enthusiastic audience participation, as we need feedback on this year’s festival and suggestions for next year. If you have any ideas for Pride, these Open Evenings will give you a chance to share them.
Get your thinking caps on, drop in, and have your say!
The ideas generated from the November Open Evenings will be brought forward to the AGM for further discussion. There is one item we can cover now, however: who “owns” Pride? You do, and you can exercise that ownership at our Open Evenings. Dublin Pride is a platform for your voice and expressions – but we need your input to make it happen.
I look forward to meeting you on either the 12th or 19th November. If you have any queries in advance of this event, please do not hesitate to contact Scott at email@example.com.
Today is the worldwide coming out day! We hope you all take a moment to think about what coming out means to you, whether or not you’ve done it yet. Coming out takes a lot of strength and courage and whatever your story you should be proud to be who you are!
If you have come out then well done! We’re glad to have to part of the community! If you’re still in the process of coming out, then we recommend this article written by our friends over at SpunOut.ie!
