This weekend marks Dublin Pride, an annual event to celebrate the LGBTQI+ community, as well as highlighting the changes that need to be made for the advancement of equality.


Due to COVID-19, all events have been moved to online for the health and safety of the public.


This does not mean that Pride is cancelled, it just means that people need to come together in a different way.

Here are just some of the amazing events taking place online across the weekend:


Friday


Wigs and Wine

Taking their annual event online this year, H&G are hosting a virtual party to celebrate pride.


Grab some props, your fave bottle of Rosé and join Kelly-Ann Byrne for tunes this Friday night from 9.

Tickets are available for free from the event's Facebook page, with a suggested donation to be made to BeLonGTo Youth Services.
