Parting Shot

The pandemic has had a huge impact on all of our lives over the past four months. Much of our plans for the coming year are out the window, including the annual Pride parade and much of the celebrations that would have taken place today. 

Friends and allies of the LGBTQ community will be celebrating in smaller numbers around the country, all in the hope that this time next year the streets will explode with colour once more. But earlier today, a small group gathered in Dublin to mark this year’s celebration – check it out below.
