Statement on the Merrion Square Plaque
A word to the LGBTQ Pride Community on this weekends unveiling
Posted on Monday, June 19, 2017 - Back to News Stories
Dublin LGBTQ Pride are very aware of the upset that was caused by the plaque that was unveiled yesterday. This plaque was reinstated as it was previously put in place by the community, along with the Pride tree, and we were proud about having it back in its rightful place.
We acknowledge that it doesn’t do enough to respect the experiences of our LGBTQ family who we have lost along the journey. We are now working to create a monument that acknowledges all members of our community.
We always appreciate feedback from the LGBTQ community and are constantly striving to be as inclusive as possible.
