Covid 19 Concerns
Dublin Pride response to Covid 19 concerns
Posted on Thursday, March 12, 2020 - Back to News Stories
Dublin Pride is working closely with the Department of Health, the HSE, Dublin City Council and our international Pride colleagues in the planning of our annual Pride Parade scheduled for June 27th. The board and management of Dublin Pride are very mindful of the current situation regarding Covid 19 and of our responsibility to act in the best interests of the community. We will follow all advice given by the relevant authorities and are contingency planning for the possibility that the date may need to move out.
It’s important to remember that Pride is more than one day. The very earliest Pride events in Dublin were attended by just a handful of people, and while we are best known for our Parades and Marches, it was these small events where we supported and helped each other in difficult times that made us what we are today. For many vulnerable people the next few weeks may be particularly difficult, remember to check in on your friends regularly, look after your own mental health and be aware of all the resources available if you feel lonely or isolated.
