Dublin Pride is the largest fundraising event of the year for many LGBTI+ community organisations and charities in Ireland. The yearly festival is held to celebrate LGBTQ people and the people who love them and want to support them and its not to be missed! However, this year everyone from all walks of life have been impacted by COVID-19 and Dublin Pride is no different. Don’t worry though the festival this year comes with a twist. It is all online!!

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.The parade will be a mix of pre-recorded and live elements with hosts, Paul Ryder and Eddie McGuinness. The Virtual Parade will be led out by the Lord Mayor of Dublin and front line workers from across the city.
