Today marks the start of Pride Month, when we can acknowledge, celebrate and support our LGBTI+ friends, family and neighbours – as welola s those LGBTI+ people seeking refuge from harassment or violence.
June 25th marks the birth of the Gay Liberation Movement in the USA, following the Stonewall Riots in New York. To read more about the history of this, click here: https://www.britannica.com/topic/gay-rights-movement
Although Pride celebrations around the country happen not only in June but other months too, Dublin Pride holds the memorial date of June 25th and many events are planned for the month ahead.
Here are some tasters – there will be updates to follow, and check our facebook pages @SeedingtheCounty and @LGBTYoughal for updates.
Wishing everyone a happy and safe Pride Month.
