NXF: The Evolution Of Pride

by Adam Long, Advocacy And Communications, National LGBT Federation (NXF)

Pride season is currently in full swing in all its colour and vibrancy, across Ireland and also internationally. This year has seen more welcome new additions to our Rainbow calendar here at home, with predominantly rural locations such as Tipperary, Wexford and Fermanagh all having hosted or set to host their first Pride events. The huge importance of these celebrations and the pivotal role they continue to play in fostering visibility and community solidarity cannot be underestimated. Indeed in our own Burning Issues 2 report of 2016 – the largest ever research into the views and priorities of LGBT+ citizens up to that point – the overwhelming majority of respondents (in excess of 80 percent) told the NXF that Pride was more important than ever.

About GCN

Welcome to our continued celebration of Pride across this beautiful country. The organisers of Pride festivals yet to happen explain what we can expect. There’s a report from Black Pride in London and a photo essay capturing events at Dublin Pride, Trans Pride and Alternative Pride. Inside, we look at Love Sensation – the new queer music and arts festival, and explore the GAZE Film Festival and its opening night film - Deep In Vogue. GCN celebrates 20 years of the incredible LINC, and the Gay Men's Health Service moves to a new location. There's an interview with the delightfully original painter Delmas Howe while The Diceman gets a touching feature looking at his enduring legacy. The community share their stories on the truth behind transitioning in Ireland, finding the courage to openly embrace their sexuality after leaving home and a HIV Positive activist speaks about improving access to sexual health services. For the second issue in a row, we happily and wholeheartedly say – Happy Pride everyone.
