Pride Festival postponed

Dublin's Pride Festival is the latest event which has been forced to postpone due to the Covid-19 crisis.

The LGBTQ+ Parade will now take place on the 12th of September rather than in June.

Organisers say after decades of asking people to come out they're now asking people to stay inside.

In a statement Dublin LGBTQ+ Pride says:

"Over the past few days we have kept hearing the phrase ‘In this Together’, a hard reminder that this virus shows no favour to anyone, but more than that, it is call to arms, a plea to everyone to join the fight and do their part."

"This will be theme of Dublin Pride, not just our festival, but our whole year."

"We stand ready to answer Ireland’s call in whatever way we can, and we ask you to do the same and when the crisis is over, Pride will be ready to play its role in bringing communities together and breathing life back into the city."

"Who would have thought that after decades of asking you to come out, we’d be asking you to stay inside?"

"Right now that is very best thing most of us can do, but that doesn’t mean you’re alone."

"Pride spent 50 years building one of the most vibrant, creative and resourceful communities in the world and we’re ready to shine."

"Support organisations like LGBT Ireland, TENI, BeLongTo, Outhouse, Linc and many others are offering phone and online services."

"GCN (Gay Community News) is providing regular news online, our Queens are still singing and throwing shade, our DJs are still dancing and we’re still marching, though the fridge features heavily in our current parade route."

"We’re planning to hold the 2020 Dublin LGBTQ+ Pride Parade on September 12th, and are able to push that date out if needed."

"We’re working closely with the Department of Health, The HSE, Dublin City Council and An Garda Siochána and will always act in the best interests of all our communities."
