Dublin LGBTQ+ Pride

We are a not-for-profit organisation dedicated to raising awareness of the discrimination faced by LGBTQ+ people, promoting diversity and inclusion in society and championing equality for all people.

Our Work

Dublin Pride Festival & Parade
June is Pride Month, and we support over 100 LGBTQ+ themed events across Dublin. The Festival culminates in the Dublin Pride Parade & March on the last Saturday of June.

Winter Pride
Over the winter months, we run a series of events designed to connect LGBTQ+ people and showcase the supports available at a time of year when they are often needed most.

Pride at Work
An education program that promotes diversity and inclusion in the workplace through training and partnerships. The program includes our annual Pride at Work Conference and Pride Guide to recruitment, employment and training.

Community Support
We work closely with a variety of LGBTQ+ charities, community organisations and government agencies to advocate for LGBTQ+ people. We also provide financial support to a number of LGBTQ+ organisations.

“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 Michael D. Higgins, June 2020
