SIPTU encourages support for Belfast Gay Pride 2011

SIPTU is calling on the public to come out in support of the week long festivities for Belfast Pride from 23rd – 30th July. The full calendar of events can be found online at;

The 21st Pride festival which the organisers hail as ‘a celebration of diversity’ will culminate with Ireland’s largest LGBT parade, making its way through Belfast city centre on Saturday 30th July.

Encouraging people to attend Pride, SIPTU Lead Organiser Martin O’Rourke said,
“SIPTU encourages everyone to come out in support of equality and diversity by attending the various events at Belfast Pride. Pride is a vibrant celebration of diversity and plays a huge role in creating an inclusive and welcoming society for the LGBT community. Last year’s parade attracted almost 17,000 people making it the city’s largest cross community festival.”
