With Pride being a Global celebration of all things LGBTQ+, it is important to celebrate in your local communities, among those of us who make up this wonderful county.
So what is going on and how can you celebrate?
Luckily, it couldn’t be simpler!
“Girls, Gays and Theys! Pride of the Deise is back again this year, with a jam packed weekend full of amazing online events to look forward too!
What exactly is Pride you ask? And why is it so important?
Why it’s a weekend to celebrate all things LGBTQ+ and to remember just how wonderful we all are, no matter our age, gender, ethnicity, religion, disability, and sexual orientation. Our Virtual Pride Weekend is a great time to celebrate the diverse community that makes up Waterford. It’s our time to shout and be seen, to celebrate gay culture, icons, activists, and you! The queers of Waterford! Oh stop blushing, it’s true!
It is also a time to think about all those Queer individuals that have come before us that have made Pride happen and those who have fought for LGBTQ+ rights in Ireland, and are still fighting for them today.
