Dublin Pride Parade 2020
Even though we won’t be together on O’Connell Street this year (see statement) we know that won’t stop us all coming together to support our community. Dublin Pride is the largest fundraising event of the year for many LGBTI+ community organisations and charities in Ireland, so, we’re still going to see you in June, and you’ll definitely see us, as we host the first Digital Dublin Pride Festival with a fully interactive virtual Pride Parade and a Pride Concert. Buildings will still light up for Pride, flags will be flying high across the city and our community will still be there to support each other. Pride isn’t cancelled, we’re just bringing it home.
Festival Launch – Friday May 22nd
The Lord Mayor of of Dublin, Tom Brabazon, will officially launch our Digital Pride Festival at a special online event to mark the 5th anniversary of Dublin delivering a 71% Yes vote in the Marriage Equality Referendum. Check out our 2015 Pride Guide for a trip down memory lane. (We checked and memory lane is within your 2KM radius)
Festival Dates – June 18th to 28th
Over the festival, we will host a number of online events of our own and promote events run by other LGBTI+ organisations. These will include virtual walking tours, talks, exhibitions, Geillí, etc. Stay tuned for more details.
