The Dublin LGBTQ Pride committee, staff and volunteer are delighted to announce that the Chair of TENI Sara Philips has been announced as the Grand Marshall of this year’s Pride parade where the theme is ‘We Are Family’.
In an interview with our partners at GCN, Sara said “It’s such an honour to be asked to be Grand Marshal. This year is actually my 20th Pride. I started in TENI in ’97 and missed just one in 2011. For the trans community, we’ve had only two previous grand marshals (Lydia Foy and Anna Grodzka), so to be chosen to represent my community in such an important way is a huge compliment to me and I’m very very proud of it.It is an amazing honour.”
The Dublin Pride 2018 Festival will take place from June 21st to 30th, with the annual Dublin LGBTQ Pride Parade taking place in Dublin City Centre on Saturday, June 30th.
See you all there!
