On the big day, the parade is preceded for many by breakfast in one of the many Dublin cafés and restaurants that put on a morning parties, complete with champagne and special menus.

Pre-parade events include an ecumenical Thanksgiveing Service and Baby Pride, a chance for the small ones to get their glitter on and show off their costumes.

At 1.30pm up to 50,000 people – on floats, in bands, in happy groups – will explode  out of Parnell Square in a riot of colour, music, glitter and sequins, to dance, sing and celebrate their way through the centre of the city to the Pride Village in Merrion Square.

Live music, big screens, food, a family & community zone and lots of other entertainment will keep the celebration going at the Village until 6pm.

Late into the night social events at venues throughout the city round the day off.

When I was younger, I loved the film ‘Matilda’. Something about the lead character really intrigued me. She had an intrinsic motivation to do what was right, regardless of the environment she was brought up in.
