5 things you need to know about Dublin LGBTQ Pride

The Route

We are back at the GPO. This year we are returning to our traditional route down O’Connell Street and ending with a family-friendly event at Merrion Square. Find out more about the parade here.

The Wristbands

We have heard a lot about the wristbands this year but here’s the T. They are just for registered groups to assemble pre-parade. We don’t want thousands of people legging it down O’Connell Street, it’s not the marathon. So in order to keep it safe there are safe colour coded assembly points. But you are welcome to join in once it’s moving. 

The Bags

Any of you festival heads will know it is now standard and required for health and safety to have bags less than A4 size to get into events. 
This will obviously not apply to those of you will medical equipment and children. 

Bring back the bumbag!

The Access

This year we have worked to make pride as accessible as possible. There will be additional accessible toilets. Interprators at all events and a bus available for people with mobility issues to enjoy the parade. There is also a quiet zone in Merrion Square, cause excessive noise isn’t everyone’s buzz. 

The Theme

The theme this year is Rainbow Revolution.  This year is 50 years since the Stonewall Revolution that marked the start of the international Pride movement.  A lot has been done but we’re not finished yet. And sure 50 is only young.
