Foyle Pride 2013

Foyle Pride Festival has become one of the highlights of the summer, with a unique family friendly feel to the parade, inspirational speakers, workshops and fantastic nights out with live music and local artists.

The launch of  this year’s festival will feature GAA star, Donal Óg Cusack, Irelands only openly gay sportsman, and one of the very few openly gay men playing at the top-level of their game.  His brave decision to be open about his sexuality is a step towards addressing the invisibility of gay men and women in top-level sports.

We believe the Pride festival is an important way to remind ourselves how far we have come in the struggle for equality, how there is still more to do and further to go, and to show our support to our LGBT brothers and sisters in parts of the world where they face violence, imprisonment and even death because of who they love.

So whether you are straight, gay, lesbian, trans, bi or somewhere in-between, come out and show your support, join the parade, attend the events, and most importantly, have fun!
