The fortieth anniversary Dublin Pride Parade will be hosted in Dublin within the hour!
The parade is scheduled to start at 12 noon today, Saturday June 24 starting on O’Connell Street and making its way to Merrion Square.
You don’t have to register for the parade, says organisers Dublin LGBTQ+Pride.
“You can just turn up today and join in the march. Remember, this is a march and a parade. We should always celebrate who we are and the hard-fought achievements we have made, but there is still a long way to go, and protest will always be at the heart of pride.”
An Garda Síochana remind that road closures and traffic diversions will be effect, so make sure you check out your traffic route if you’re planning on coming into the city during the next few hours.
“For us, Pride is about supporting people to feel accepted, equal, supported and safe in the community,” said An Garda Síochana on its social media platforms.
