Dublin Pride to go Digital in June!

May 13, 2020

This yearā€™s Dublin Pride Parade, which was cancelled due to the coronavirus pandemic, is going digital.

The parade, which typically marches down Oā€™Connell Street in June, is the largest fundraising event of the year for many LGBTQ+ community organisations and charities in Ireland.

The theme for the 2020 festival is In This Together and organisers have decided to hostĀ the first Digital Dublin Pride FestivalĀ with an interactive virtual Pride Parade and a Pride Concert. According to the festivalā€™s planners, buildings will still light up and flags will be flown across the city.

The Digital Pride Festival will be launched online by the Lord Mayor of Dublin, Tom Brabazon, on Friday, May 22 to mark the fifth anniversary of the Yes vote in the Marriage Equality Referendum.

A number of online festival events, including virtual walking tours, talks, and exhibitions, will be held on June 18-28.

On Saturday, June 27, Dublin Pride will join hundreds of Prides around the world for the 24 hourĀ Global Pride event.
