THIS IS A NEW IDEA – RAINBOW COLOURED LETTERBOX ON DAME STREET FOR THE DUBLIN PRIDE PARADE THIS WEEKEND
June 28th marks the 50th anniversary of an uprising that changed the landscape of LGBTQ+ rights forever. Over six nights in 1969, members of the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community resisted police oppression at the Stonewall Inn in New York City, igniting the modern fight for LGBTQ+ rights across the world.
Last year more than 60,000 people attended the Dublin Pride parade – an event which has become one of the biggest annual events in Ireland.
The parade will begin on O’Connell Street at 13:00 before turning onto Eden Quay to pass by Liberty Hall where the first large scale march for LGBTQ+ rights in Ireland started in 1983.
It will then cross the Liffey at Talbot Memorial Bridge and travel along City Quay, Lombard Street, Westland Row and end with a free outdoor event in Merrion Square.
