As we enter Phase Two restrictions put in place to combat the spread of the Coronavirus are being lifted. That being said, we're not back to normal and there are major events that have been cancelled or postponed as a result.
One of them is the Dublin Pride parade.

Paul Ryder is co-hosting Virtual Pride along with Eddie McGuinness. The parade itself will be a mix of pre-recorded and live elements and they're looking for submissions from members of the community and allies so that everyone can share in the joy of pride.
Lord knows we need some joy *shakes fist at 2020*.
