The Black Pride Ireland Manifesto

Black Pride Ireland is a movement created by queer Black people, for Black LGBTQIA+ folks on the island of Ireland. We were founded in 2019 with the aim of creating spaces safe for, accessible to and centring all Black LGBTQIA+ here.

We are we dedicated to the nurturing and uplifting of queer Black people in Ireland. This includes activism (protesting, educating, organising) and advocacy by and for every one of us. We aim to provide, to the best of our abilities, the necessary spaces needed for Black LGBTQIA+ people in Ireland to thrive. We are frequently failed by the structures we exist in and are beholden to – the immigration system, the HSE, educational institutions, workplaces – and we felt it important to create places where queer Black people could air their grievances about these structures without fear of losing their jobs or being deported. To facilitate this, we will run events such as talks, workshops, lectures and social gatherings that cater specifically to our community.

About GCN

Welcome to our celebration of the LGBT+ artists and queer creatives making dynamic and compelling works. We highlight some of the stunning shows in the Dublin Fringe Festival including our very own collaboration with the festival - The North Is Next. Fringe stars Vickey Curtis, Seán Kennedy, Maia Nunes and Beth Hayden from Glitter HOLE all feature prominently. There’s a fabulous photospread of the ultimate queer art and music festival - Love Sensation and we take a deep dive into the world of queer dating sims. You’ll find essential interviews with queer drag artist extraordinaire - Avoca Reaction, multi-talented artist Dylan Meade and Dylan Coburn Gray, the writer of the diverse and inclusion new National Youth Theatre show - Ask Too Much Of Me. The community speaks, with the launch of Outcomers Drogheda, the manifesto for Black Pride Ireland and a HIV Positive activist with ACT UP Cork speaks about the need to share the U=U message. To all the artists, creatives, writers, performers, singers, illustrators and dreamers - this one’s for you.
