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.
EVERY event in Ireland has the tendency to go that way. From Pride, to Patrick's Day to major music festivals, there's an element who will just get off their faces and go crazy.

I don't think it's anything Pride specific but more a reflection of a tincy issue we have with binge drinking and drug fuelled unplesant behaviour.

Yep, they also seem to know a lot of tone deaf people who can't distinguish between different accents.

Absolutely agree. Thankfully it has been addressed by pride organisers and will not feature at all this year.
The parade finishes up in a safe secure monitored location.
It’ll be fantastic for families and anyone in attendance.
