WELCOME TO BELFAST PRIDE This year’s Belfast Pride was always going to be unique – celebrating the 30th Belfast Pride Parade, the end of the long road to Equal Marriage and reproductive rights while protesting the lack of progress on Trans Rights, poor access to Healthcare for Trans people and standing against attacks on Trans identities and rights. There is a renewed focus on racial justice and solidarity between marginalised people, we all need to examine how we work for inclusion and change and what we can learn from each other to challenge discrimination and bring about equality for all. The last six months have been challenging for many, lives have been lost, lives have changed and supporting each other as a community has rarely been more important. We have a long way to go yet and while most Belfast Pride events are online this year, we still need to stay safe, maintain social distancing and look after each other during Pride. Belfast Pride is a celebration and protest and we can do that with the online Belfast Pride Parade this year and still feel the affirmation and togetherness that Belfast Pride brings. It has been a definite challenge putting Belfast Pride together this year; many hours of work across different organisations have gone in to arranging events online so that we can still come together as a Pride family this year. Belfast Pride brings important visibility for LGBT+ people and we still need Pride for that this year and beyond. We’ll celebrate our #RainbowHeroes this year and come together on the streets of Belfast next year again, as a diverse, beautiful and supportive community. Happy Pride from everyone at Team Pride!

#PrideWithTheT

Fifty years ago, brave trans people stood up to police brutality, political indifference, and widespread hate. They stood alongside their lesbian, gay and bisexual friends and comrades, and said that enough was enough. Half a century on, and as the current custodians of the Pride movement that sprang from this uprising, we acknowledge our roots and stand on the shoulders of those brave pioneers. We are disgusted and appalled by the visceral hatred and intolerance being targeted at the trans community. Our Pride organisations are founded on a basis of respect, and we demand that all who come to Pride share our commitment to the equality and human rights of everyone in the LGBTI community. Those who oppose equality and respect for any section of our community are as unwelcome at Pride as those who oppose equality and respect for every section of our community. We say again that enough is enough. We are proud to be part of this great movement, and we affirm that our Prides stand firmly With The T.

Sadie quickly starts to hang out with them all on the regular, but has she really found a place where she belongs? Or will old insecurities, crushes and drama get in the way?� Open to all lesbian and bisexual women and girls 12+. Email Danielle for more information policy@hereni.org

We have asked party leaders to attend this year to take your questions on why we still do not have full Equality and what they have been doing to try to change that. There has still been little progress on Trans health care or Gender Recognition Rights, Fertility Rights, Reproductive Rights, Banning Conversion Therapy, Inclusive RSE in schools, not to mention what affect the current pandemic will have on demand for Mental Health service and much more. Allison Morris, Security Correspondent for the Irish News will put your questions to a panel of leading politicians asking why LGBT+ people here still don’t have full Equality.

Belfast Pride Annual Lecture Unapologetically fabulous: Fighting to thrive during a global crisis ONLINE - 19:00 From the Stonewall riots to Black Lives Matter - the LGBTIQ+ community and the fight for freedom for all - activist and academic Sen Raj gives the 2020 Amnesty Pride lecture From a global pandemic to state violence, recent events have further exposed what many of us intimately knew: racism, sexism, transphobia, and homophobia inhibit the survival of marginalised people. But, these events have also drawn attention to the fabulous ways in which Black, Indigenous, and people of colour in LGBTIQ+ communities are unapologetically fighting against political persecution, social stigma, and domestic violence. This organising isn’t just about surviving in times of crisis nor politely waiting for the world to change. It’s about taking up space to create a future where we can all thrive with safety, freedom, justice, and community.
