Derry / Londonderry’s annual Foyle Pride Festival has become one of the highlights of the summer, with a unique family friendly feel to the parade, inspirational speakers, workshops and fantastic nights out with live music and local artists.
We believe the Pride festival is an important way to remind ourselves how far we have come in the struggle for equality, how there is still more to do and further to go, and to show our support to our LGBT brothers and sisters in parts of the world where they face violence, imprisonment and even death because of who they love.
So whether you are straight, lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender or somewhere in-between, come out and show your support, join the parade, attend the events, and most importantly, have fun!
