The month of June, also known as Pride Month, celebrates the diversity in our communities while also reminding us that society will be a better place when we have full inclusivity for all Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Questioning, Non-binary and others.

The Pride Flag will fly again across Wicklow County Council buildings and Municipal District buildings and businesses and organisations across the County are asked to participate by flying a Pride Flag or creating rainbow artwork to show support for the month of June.

“It’s a time to celebrate what has been achieved over the years and a time to create awareness that we do not have full acceptance of all, which is a major issue in Ireland and around the world.” Says filmmaker, Wicklow Pride Festival founder and LGBTQ+ activist Dave Thomas.

“Flying the Pride Flag represents us all in the community. It’s a beacon of hope, inspiration, and a physical sign that tells young people afraid to come out to family and friends that they are not alone, they are part of a community that loves and supports them.”
