Hargey welcomes return of Pride festivals and events

As Pride 2022 festivals return this summer as in-person events after two years of being delivered online due to COVID-19 restrictions, Communities Minister Deirdre Hargey has taken the opportunity to promote LGBTQI+ inclusion, visibility and equality.

Pride events are important opportunities for members of the LGBTQI+ communities and their allies to increase their visibility and help create a sense of belonging for people who, because of their sexual orientation or gender identity, may feel they and the issues they face are ignored by society.

Minister Hargey said: “I am delighted that Pride festivals are able to return to in-person events after two years because of Covid restrictions. It is great to see that more and more events are happening.

“Pride events are open to all and I would encourage as many people as possible to attend to show our love, support and appreciation for our LGBTQI+ communities.

“It is important that we all work together to build an inclusive society. I hope you all enjoy events across Pride season this year.”
