Welcome to the Limerick Pride Festival 2014
Welcome to the Limerick Pride Festival 2014, Limerick’s annual celebration of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender culture. Over the past eleven months we have been working on what we hope will be Limerick’s biggest Pride Festival to date. This year our Festival has added significance, as we are in the shadows of the Civil Marriage Referendum in Sping 2015, a huge milestone in our colourful history. Each year we are taken aback by how much the people of Limerick embrace our Festival and help us to grow in ways we could only imagine in years gone by. This year, as one of the 109 Made in Limerick projects for Limerick City of Culture we have been given a unique opportunity which means we can bring our Festival to a larger audience and hold events on a scale which we have never been able to before. We are lucky to live in a City which embraces our culture and celebrates with us during Pride week each year, whether it be the venues which hold events, the businesses that hang their Pride Flags in support or the people who work tirelessly behind the scenes each year. These gestures mean so much to our community and let us know that our City and it’s people accept us for who we are. Limerick Pride Festival as always welcomes our friends, families and the wider Limerick Community to celebrate with us and embrace our motto of Equality, Love, Diversity and Celebration. Pride is a time to come together, make new friends and remember how lucky we are to live in such a beatutiful and accepting City. I hope you all have a fantastic week and manage to take in a few events from our diverse programme. Above all, we hope you enjoy the week and have a happy and safe Limerick Pride 2014.
