Here's How You Can Help At Dublin Pride This Year

It's that time of the year again where we come together for a week of festivities to celebrate the rich diversity of our fair city with Dublin Pride 2017.

Pride festivals originated in the 1960s America as a show of, well, pride in the face of violence and oppression towards the gay community. Since then it's gone from strength to strength, becoming a major event in the social calendars of cities around the world.

Since Ireland's first Pride parade in 1974, Dublin's LGBTQ movement has experienced many ups and downs, enduring early periods of strife preceding major strides in the more recent years culminating in the colossal turning point that was the passing of the Marriage Equality referendum in 2015, where the majority of Ireland showed their solidarity with the gay community.

There's now an opportunity where you can show that support once again by taking a volunteer position in this year's Dublin Pride.

The organisers are seeking people from a wide variety of backgrounds with a passion for the community to help with the event. While the week-long festival only runs from June 16-24, the work continues all year round. So if you can spare 2–4 hours per week to work on the project, you're just what Pride needs.

There are four main areas in which you might be able to contribute: event coordination, digital team, volunteer coordination and sponsorship.

If you'd like to play your part in Dublin Pride, you'll first need to read the Volunteer Handbook and sign the Volunteer Agreement form.
