PRIDE 2021


Dublin Pride 2021 was officially launched by The Lord Mayor of Dublin Hazel Chu on the International Day Against Homophobia, Biphobia & Transphobia (May 17th). The ribbon-cutting ceremony took place at the Dublin Pride Hub on 19 Duke Street, Dublin 2.


The theme for Dublin Pride 2021 is Community, with a focus on promoting the vital work of LGBTQ+ organisations & services. As the biggest LGBTQ+ fundraising events of the year, we are thrilled to launch the Dublin Pride Community Fund at The Community Foundation for Ireland. All proceeds will go directly towards supporting LGBTQ+ organisations affected by the COVID-19 crisis.


Machnamh Bród
June 1st – 6th

Machnamh is an old Irish concept that encompasses meditation, reflection, contemplation and thought. One year after the Black Lives Matter marches that took place around the world following the death of George Floyd, we examine and celebrate the intersections of communities within our own community and reflect on what we have done to challenge racism, misogyny, transphobia and ableism in the past 12 months and challenge ourselves to do more.


Culture, Arts & Heritage
June 7th – 13th

A week dedicated to celebrating LGBTQ+ contributions to the arts, history and culture. Check out our Pride Player where we will host the 18th Dublin Gay Theatre Festival, launching June 7th and running until the end of June.


Health & Wellbeing
June 14th – 20th

The past 18 months have been particularly difficult, and LGBTQ+ people have had to face a number of challenges such as being forced back into the closet, living in an unsupportive or homophobic environment or isolation. Week 3 therefore focuses on ensuring our physical and mental wellbeing in times of crisis and beyond.


June 21st – 28th

In the final week of Dublin Pride 2021, we want to showcase the dedicated LGBTQ+ organisations and support services in the country. As always, the festival will culminate in the Dublin Pride Parade & March. The Virtual Pride Parade will once again be broadcast from The Round Room at The Mansion House on Saturday, June 26th as part of a full-day entertainment programme. The festival will end on the anniversary of the Stonewall Riots on Monday, June 28th.
