Are you taking part in any LGBTQ events for pride month?

I saw the Gardai Today said they were taking part in Dublin pride later this month and they showed some cars they transformed for the event.
Personally myself I'm not doing anything for the month. I know a few people who'll probably attend Dublin pride.
I know the event is becoming more and more popular with families in the last few years. Mostly with people close to the events. Is there anybody here travelling with their family to LGBTQ events this year?
Or is it something that you've to do in your work place?

I wasn't planning to, but if I''m around when a party happens, then sure why not.

Nobody told the Corkonians there was a special month, they don't start until end of July

My workplace organises an annual Pride Parade float, as do others (other employers are available).

I think it's important to have an alternative national holiday, where we (straight, male and pale) are the guests of a minority, and not vice versa. It seems to be quite a healthy pursuit.

Leaving aside all that political stuff, which most participants seem not to care about, it's quite an impressive show. How anyone could begrudge such fun is really beyond my comprehension.

Snide passive aggressive remarks like that aren't very masculine, so you're already halfway there.

Nope. Much love for the cause, hate big noisy drunken crowds. It’s up there with Paddy’s Day and NYE in terms of celebrations I’d pay good money not to be in Dublin for.

Nope.
I presume certain businesses have seen that there's a lot of money to be made out of it. Can't see any other reason it would be extended to a whole month.

There's also a gay rugby tournament being held in Ireland this week.

Six one did a nice feature on it yesterday evening.
