Members of the Sligo Pride Organising Team would like to wish you all a very HAPPY PRIDE this Pride Month, which in spite of a global pandemic sees Pride Festivals and Organisations from around the world coming together to celebrate as part of Global Pride 2020.
So as you may have read in our online statement Sligo Pride Festival 2020 has been postponed until August 2021! This is indeed sad news as we were so looking forward to seeing you all again this year. However, Sligo Pride is the reigning champion of the ‘Pride Comeback’ and we know a lil’ something about bouncing back! 😉
This year Sligo saw the return of Sligo Pride Festival to the streets of Sligo City. Hundred turned out to show their Pride and solidarity with members of the LGBT+ community in Sligo and the North-West. We will be hosting a public consultation and AGM on Friday, September 13 from 4pm until 6pm in Sligo City Hall.
This is the first time in history of Pride in Sligo in which a public AGM will be hosted in Sligo City Hall. We are looking forward to meeting with the wider Sligo community to hear your thoughts on Sligo Pride 2019 and plans for the future. Pride is both a celebration and a continued protest, as such it makes sense to send a clear message that LGBT+ members of the community are supported by their local government.
If you are interested in joining the Sligo Pride Committee or volunteering with us over the next year to make Sligo Pride Festival bigger and better next year, please do get in touch with us. Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or contact us through our website www.sligopride.com. You can also find us on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.
