Dublin’s place of Pride

August 21st, 2010 · 2 Comments · LGBT

Thanks to the little birdies who let me know that the Directors of Dublin Pride have commenced a review of the Pride Festival 2010. The festival appeared to have the best profile ever with plenty of mainstream media coverage and a great turn out at many events including 22,000 marching during the Pride Parade.

I’ve covered difficulties before that myself and others have had with the location of the Post Pride celebrations and given the huge numbers that have attended this year it seems that the board of Dublin Pride are trying again to see if the event can be moved.

Locations that have been discussed include the Iveagh Gardens, Dublin Castle, Merrion Square West, O2 at the Point Village, the Dublin Convention Centre at Spencer Dock, Phoenix Park, IMMA, Smithfield and St. Stephen’s Green. Other suggestions are also being sought.

Meanwhile Dublin Pride have themselves been in touch to promote their online survey regarding the opinions of the LGBT community on this years Pride as they plan next years events.

So if like me you would like to see the Pride march end up somewhere more comfortable, relaxing and momentous you might head over here and give your opinions!
