Pride is taking over the streets of Dublin right now in the most wonderful way possible.

The people, the atmosphere, the colours and vibes – it just doesn't get better than this.

So we went out to speak to some of those taking part, to ask what Pride means to them. 

'It’s a day to celebrate being different and what it means to be different. It’s my first Pride being out and the atmosphere is amazing.'
