Samaritans at Dublin Pride

Samaritan volunteers from across Ireland are getting festival ready as they prepare to support thousands of revellers at the forthcoming Dublin Pride Festival.

Listening volunteers will be available in the Parliament Street/Capel Street area for anyone who needs emotional support from 9pm on Friday 28 to the early hours of Sat 29 and again from 5pm Saturday through the early hours of Sunday. They will also be available on Parnell Square before the Parade sets off and in Pride Village in Merrion Square afterwards Theresa Potter, a Samaritans volunteer and Director of the Irish Festival Group, said,”When you go to an event with thousands of people, you expect that they are having a good time, but that’s not always the case. We want to get the message out that Samaritans will be available, day or night, to support those who need us. Anyone who might be struggling to cope, or who may be feeling anxious, depressed or alone in the crowd, can look for a Samaritan to help.”

About GCN

Welcome to our biggest and brightest issue of the year - our annual Pride Edition. We made a call out for members of our LGBT+ family to design our cover. All who entered are featured inside, and for the first time ever we have a bumper double cover by artists Gabriel Marques and Day Magee! Inside we round-up all the Prides taking place across Ireland alongside interviews with young people from rural areas who explain Pride’s importance. There’s a conversation between Will St Leger, the Dublin Pride Grand Marshall, and Bruce Coleman, an ACT UP activist who was in New York after Stonewall. There’s a remembrance of the Repeal movement and a feature about the prejudice faced by lesbian women and trans folk in barbershops. GCN also reaches out to the community; chatting to the myriad places where our magazine is delivered. And that’s only the tip of the Pride float. From all at GCN, we wish you a happy, safe and fabulous Pride season!
