Dublin’s First Trans Pride Parade to be held Tomorrow
Dublin’s first ever Trans Pride Parade will take place this weekend, which organisers hope will give momentum to the trans-rights movement in Ireland.
And organisations taking part in the march include Trans Pride Northern Ireland, United Against Racism and the Siptu LGBT Network. With the event set up to highlight trans issues like healthcare, transphobic violence and many other issues people are not aware of, with the overall mission being to give confidence to the trans community and allowing them the space to have their voices heard.
