About Dublin LGBTQ Pride
“From what were modest beginnings in 1974, when a small number of courageous individuals marched the streets of Dublin to demand that the Government decriminalise homosexuality, to the first Pride Parade in 1983, just a few months after the brutal murder of a gay man, Declan Flynn, in Fairview Park, to the modern annual parade and festival that has grown to become the largest and most popular event in Dublin next to the St Patrick’s Day Festival, Pride has helped change the laws and constitution of Ireland, as well as the hearts and minds of many of our citizens.”
President Micheal D Higgins, June 2020
