Posted this in another thread so I hope it’s ok to post it here too as it’s relevant.

This is another example of why pride is important. Kids and teens live near this person and some may even attend his church.

How Christian of him

Almost nothing about the video is about pride parades. It starts off mentioning them sure, but then the entire video goes on a spree of tangents from there. Many of the tangents having nothing to do with LGBT at all, but just sexuality as a whole. And the only link between those tangents..... and LGBT or pride...... is they happen to have been put in the same video.

For example the video cherry picks sentences out of talks about paedophilia. Nothing to do with LGBT. Nothing to do with Pride. It was a video from a scholar that was discussed, and highly misrepresented, here on boards.ie before.

In fact by the end of the video the speaker is ranting about abortion and male gender roles and his problem with mini socks or no socks on men. And vegans. How the hell has that got anything to do with Pride? Some dude who obsesses over socks?

Is there any pride events that would be suitable for a thirteen and a nine year old girl, my daughter has said she would like to attend but I'm not comfortable at this age to allow her to.

From what I've seen over the years from working in the city, there seems to be a lot of under age drinking, and lewd behavior at it which I don't want to expose either of them to.

Not gonna lie. The past three or four years Pride in Dublin has seen a rash of underage kids coming into town and getting into awful states.
That changed last year when it was moved to Smithfield and a confined big space with proper supervision and security and volunteers. Nobody was allowed in with alcohol or if they were messy drunk. They have implemented steps to stop that now.
Bear in mind, each year pride gets bigger. Look up the arrests for drunk or lewd behaviour. For the last ten years even. There are none.
As to lewd behaviour, there is none. It’s grand. Your daughter will see far worse in a Beyoncé video. There’s Gardaí all along the route but somehow people think there’s orgies happening in the parade. There isn’t. Nothing even like that.

Bring them in and take part. You’ll all have a great day.

Ah Brillo! Not even going to lie. It’s just a fun day. You go along in the parade. People standing on o Connell st and dame st cheering and whistling. It’s a fun harmless day out full of colour and music and celebration. That’s basically all.
You’ll see a drunken idiot. You’ll see a drag queen on stilts. You can ask a Garda to get in a funny selfie with you. But you’ll hear amazing stories and speeches and see how Ireland has changed. And if your two little ones are going, be brilliant to let them see that and know it’s all open and there for them and it’ll inform their mindset as they grow up.
No harm in that at all. Trust me. It’s grand

Why? It’s not the bacchanalian anything goes sex fest you read about on here? From posters who have never attended?
It isn’t. Sorry about that.
It’s a family day open to all.

*and corporations have taken it over and you just know they don’t want their brand associated with any kind of debauchery or anything ‘lewd’. That it had been taken over by them tells anyone doubtful about it that it’s goihg to safe and free of any and all lewdness.
