Limerick LGBTI Pride Festival 2016
Limerick Pride 2016, running from Monday July 11 until Sunday July 17 with the Parade on Saturday July 16.
Following the Stonewall riots in New York City in 1969, a resolution was passed by the Eastern Conference of Homophile Organisations in Philadelphia on the 2nd of November 1969.
“that a demonstration be held annually on the last day of June” and that it would “encompass the ideas and ideals of the larger struggle that we are engaged in – that of our fundamental human rights”
The Pride Parade is always a highlight of our annual festival. It is an opportunity for us to march in solidarity and hear the power of our voices combined. It is also a chance for us to celebrate, to celebrate ourselves, our diversity, our achievements and our friends. Admission to the Pride Parade is free for individuals and community groups that support the ideals and principles of Pride, though registration is required for all groups taking part.
For the enjoyment of all and to ensure the safety of all, groups and organisations wishing to take part must register in advance
LIMERICK LGBTI PRIDE PARADE 2016
Gathering at City Hall at 1.30pm and starting off at 2.30pm SHARP.
The annual Limerick LGBTI Pride Parade on Saturday July 16, will bring some extra colour and music to Limerick City Centre, gathering at City Hall at 1.30pm.
The route follows the same route as previous years, after leaving our assembly point, we travel up Patrick St, continuing all the way up O’Connell St before turning right onto Lower Mallow St, we then turn right again on to Henry St and continue all the way down past Arthurs Quay Park. We then turn left onto Rutland St to end up back outside City Hall.
There will be a rainbow balloon release once the parade passes Debenhams on O Connell Street. We strongly recommend rainbow colours as our theme is #UnitedColoursofLimerick this year.
Expect full on colour, dance, music, street performance and theatrics. Be Loud Be Bold Be Daring Be There!
