PostSubject: Come walk with us in Dublin Pride   Sun Jun 20, 2010 4:11 pm

Hey All!

This is an open invitation to join us and the supporters of the Irish
Traveller Movement as we walk the Dublin Pride Parade on Saturday 26th
of June (Saturday next)

The kick-off is at 2pm from the Garden of Remembrance, Parnell Square
and will take over the streets right down to the Party in the Park at
the Civic Offices near Christchurch Cathedral.

The invitation is open to all, regardless of orientation or community,
admission is totally free, no tickets required - just turn up!

The opportunity to walk with the parade is nothing less then a
powerful act of social solidarity and a welcoming support of diversity
within our own community. ill definitely be there...what about you?

:-)

I'll be there. I'm delighted to show public solidarity with the group and it's great to know others will be there whether marching alongside or sending positive energy from near or far. I really like marching in Pride though I've not done it for a few years. It's a great fun queer ol' day. Can we do Galway Pride as a group too?

I'm very excited about this!!!

1of-dem, marching isn't for everyone but its not really to do with sexuality is it, more about true equality. Seeing as the ITM themselves will be marching with the group showing every unnamed traveller out there that they are not alone, without support or recognition. That's an extremely powerful action to take and you cant imagine what it means for someone in my situation.

I plan to be there especially as its not just lgbt travellers but people in general so I don't mind at all about blending in. I think id rather let people know im okay with them being who they are, with the support of others then off getting lushed in some pub (which would most likely be what id be doing haha)

I hope you join us.

Galway pride would be great too! Lets all see how dub treats us and we can use it as a rule of thumb not sure what the mods think about that idea tho.

What about:

Equality... for all.
We are family too.

Seeing as were walking with ITM:

ITM supports LGBT rights.

Anyone got any more... looking forward to this even though ill be in the crowd. People who know me plese do say hello tho as I dont want anyone to feel knowing someone whos gay is wrong. I got a complicated life and children but i dont want people ignored.

C ye sat!
