Kerry Pride has announced Pride Inside, an online Pride festival to replace the traditional in-person event.
A collaboration between Kerry Pride, Killarney Pride, Black Pride Ireland, Galway Pride, Limerick Pride, and Mayo Pride, the festival will take place from 11th-19th of July 2020.
The events happening online throughout the week of the festival will include panel discussions, watch parties, quizzes, and live music.
Morgan Queeney, chair of Kerry Pride said: “We are delighted to be working with Killarney Pride, Black Pride Ireland, Galway Pride, Limerick Pride, and Mayo Pride for Pride Inside. "
"This week long event is an opportunity to celebrate how diverse our LGBT community is and to support each other during these difficult times. It is so hard to connect to family, especially found-family and our LGBT+ community at this time," they said.
"For the first time in history, all these Prides are coming together to bring a sense of belonging to any LGBT+ person and our supporters in Ireland and beyond. We hope you can join us."
