Pride Guide Competition

We’re in this together, so let’s be in it together. We want your pictures, your words and your creations to be part of the physical record of LGBTI+ life in Dublin in 2020 that will be this year’s Pride Guide.

Be Our Cover Star

Your creation could feature as our cover. We’re all about diversity, so any medium is welcome (maybe not pictures of that banana bread you made). It has to be your own original creation and we’ll feature a selection of the best entries inside. The Pride Guide is A4 in size and will be available as a free download as well as a limited print run. The deadline for entries is May 20th and the winner will be announced at the official launch of Dublin Pride on May 22nd.

Tell us a story

They say Shakespeare wrote King Lear in lockdown. Have you a poem, a story or a reflection you’d like to share? Send it in and we’ll feature our favourite ones.

Society Pages

Remember flicking through GCN to see if that picture of you falling off the stage while dancing in the George made it in? Send us your best lockdown pictures and you might get included in our staying at home society pages.

Please send your submissions to by May 20th. Dublin LGBTQ Pride work collaboratively with GCN to produce the Pride Guide. Successful submissions with be chosen by our joint team. We’ll send a Dublin Pride gift pack and of course a copy of our Pride Guide to everyone whose submissions we use.
