Dublin Pride Festival 2011: It’s a human thing.

This year’s theme, “It’s a Human Thing” emphasises that the LGBTQ community are Human Beings first and foremost and should be valued and treated equally by society and government. While there has been huge progress with the introduction of the Civil Partnership Bill this year, there is still a lot of work to be done to secure equal rights. With that in mind we are aiming to make this year’s parade (Saturday the 25th of June, 2pm at the Garden of Remembrance), the biggest and most colourful parade ever held on the streets of our fair capital. As this is going to be such a glorious day, we would like to take this opportunity to point out a few tips to ensure that everyone has a Safe and Happy Pride!

BEFORE WE GO: Start off the day by having a good breakfast. It can be such a long day so you will need all the energy you can get. Such a simple task will keep you singing and dancing all day and night long, especially if you were also out the night before! Wear sensible shoes for the Parade. The parade route can be a daunting walk, especially if wearing your stilettos! So if you do decide to wear your fabulous Carrie Bradshaw approved, 6-inch heel Manolo Blahniks, make sure to pack a pair of trainers, in case they get too much for you. Dress sensibly and if it’s warm take off any excess (within the bounds of the law, of course!). The sun doesn’t always shine so have a brolly ready, just in case. Be aware of your surroundings and security at all times. Don’t leave your personal belongings unattended or place them on any of the floats. Remember crowds are a favourite haunt for pickpockets. Keep any necessary items, especially medication, water, cash etc to hand.

ON THE ROAD: Please follow the directions of the stewards, who are there for your safety and move to the position on the road indicated by them. Be patient if the parade stops from time to time, as this is necessary to maintain cohesion, so we don’t fragment into mini parades. Make sure to keep a safe distance from any moving vehicles and do try to get on or off any floats etc while in motion! If for any reason you need Garda or medical assistance, a steward can help you to get their attention. C h e c k o u t w w w. d u b l i n p r i d e . i e f o r t h e f u l l l i s t i n g s .

POST PARADE VENUE: Access to the Civic Offices is controlled and will be from Winetavern Street and Fishamble Street. There will be security at this access, and alcohol will be confiscated before entry is granted. This event takes place in public space and it is simply illegal to drink in public. DCC and the Gardai are extremely supportive and helpful in the organising of our event, so we ask that you respect this request. As always, dogs are welcomed as an integral part of the festival but all dogs must have a leash and larger dogs need to be safe for those around them. Portaloos will be available on-site, together with waste bins to help keep the area clean and safe for our fellow citizens. A control point will be in operation at the event for the reporting of any incidents.

EMERGENCIES: There will be an ambulance at the rear of the parade. If you feel ill or someone beside you has taken ill, please move yourself or the people involved to the pavement and attract a steward for assistance. If you have a condition that could cause collapse please tell a friend or steward what action should be taken in that eventuality. Look out for those near you; remember we are all in this together.

LORD MAYOR’S WELCOME “I welcome the return of Dublin LGBTQ Pride Festival. It is always a celebratory and colourful event and livens up the streets of Dublin. Dublin City Council are proud to work with the Pride organisation to highlight the diversity of the people of our capital city. I hope that all the participants, visitors and organisers have an enjoyable and safe Pride Festival 2011”.

Welcome

Dublin Pride Festival 2011: It’s a human thing.

Happy Pride! Allow me to welcome you all to the 2011 Dublin LGBTQ Pride Festival on behalf of everyone working and volunteering with Pride this year! Bród shona daoibh go léir! Ba mhaith liom fáilte a chur roimh go Féile Leispeach, Aerach, Daoine Dhá-Gnéiseach, Idir-Gnéiseach agus Muintir Ait Baile Átha Cliath 2011 ar shon na daoine go léir atá ag obair saor in aisce an bhliain seo! 2011 has been a momentous year so far for the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer community. Civil Partnership law has come into effect, openly gay people have been elected to the Dáil and the Seanad and the Equality Tribunal has made a landmark decision in relation to transphobia in the workplace. The future of the LGBTQ community has never seemed brighter. Collectively we are an inspiration to each other. Our potential achievements are constrained only by the limits of our imagination. As we celebrate Pride with passion, flair and enthusiasm we cannot forget those activists - David Kato of Uganda and Noxolo Nogwaza of South Africa - who died this year while actively campaigning for LGBTQ community development in their native countries. May their courage spur us on to achieving respect, inclusion, diversity & equality. This year we are attempting to achieve the biggest and best Festival we possibly can with new events, new branding and fresh volunteers but the Festival is only as strong as its participants. Join us in celebrating a happy, healthy, safe Dublin LGBTQ Pride Festival! Yours In Pride, Mise le Bród, Jo Mc Namara Chairperson Dublin LGBTQ Pride Festival: Promoting Respect, Inclusion, Diversity & Equality

DEAR LADIES, GENTLEMEN AND OTHERS


Grand Marshall

Michael Barron Since we started BeLonG To in 2003 I have witnessed such a transformation in this country and in this LGBTQ Community of ours – nowhere more so than amongst young people. LGBTQ young people are coming out in such great numbers now, and at younger and younger ages. Although things are improving, this takes huge bravery, particularly in environments where homophobic and transphobic bullying is rife. Everyday LGBTQ young people all over the country are told that they are not good enough and that they should apologise for who they are. LGBTQ Pride is so important because it is the one time of the year when these young people can be surrounded by tens of thousands of people who are just like them. It’s a time when they do not have to apologise and a time when we as a community say to them - ‘You do not have to change - you are absolutely perfect the way you are’. LGBTQ Pride is a cross-generational celebration of our shared and diverse histories and identities. It’s a time when the Queer Community of Ireland can STAND UP! with our straight friends and allies to claim a space. It’s about being unapologetic in voicing our plans to keep on transforming this country until we achieve real and lasting Equality. Happy Pride! Michael Barron

Dublin Pride Festival 2011: It’s a human thing.

If your sexuality, gender or relationship seems to be a problem, I’ve found that dealing with the issue in an open manner is the first step towards peace of mind. I hear you say that, it’s easier said than done. I agree, but the end results of facing issues rather than burying them in the back of the mind works wonders. It’s like the day of the final exam and the long summer days are ahead, exhilarating. Being transgendered was never an easy road, and for those who are gay or lesbian from a non supportive environment, life can be very difficult. Coming out to parents has to be one of the most difficult things for anyone to do, and the reverse of that coming out to your children, as happened in my case. Rejection is something that all of us fear at some time in our lives, if we are honest. Those that I greatly admire are parents who accept their offspring with all the diversities and quirks that life brings. Unconditional love is something that many are not able to give, and sadly that does lead to a lot of emotional pain. I could never stop loving my children because of being transgendered. The fact that they choose not to speak to me will never negate my care for them. Being true to who you are can be difficult as I found out very painfully, but Ireland is moving on. The more people who stand up and be true to themselves the better it is for everyone in the longer term. The recent Equality Tribunal decision in my case and the widespread support it received I hope will encourage others to take a stand where inequality and homophobia/transphobia prevail. The media and general public support was overwhelmingly positive and encouraging. In the early part of the last century women were not allowed to vote. Today that would be inconceivable. I look forward to the time when the issue of those who are gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgendered, will be something which doesn’t even cause a second thought, because we are all normal human beings... “It’s a Human Thing”

Sport is a uniquely human endeavour, played and supported by millions of people across the globe. Not alone does it allow those involved to strive for excellence and ultimate victory, it also brings people together in common purpose, forming social attachments that far exceed the original objective of the sport. The Emerald Warriors RFC is a prime example of this. As a player with the Warriors I have had the pleasure of experiencing what it is to be part of a team; in its sporting activities and triumphs, its various levels of development and renewal, and in its friendships and life long bonds. The Emerald Warriors is born of the LGBTQ community in Ireland and has enabled many of us to contribute and live in that community through the medium of rugby. The Emerald Warriors’ continuing success, and that of other LGBTQ sports groups in Ireland, is an expression of that human draw towards sport and the benefits it can bring while enjoying it all within one’s own community.

Dublin Pride Festival 2011: It’s a human thing.

I am not sure when I realised I was gay. Growing up I felt part of a totally normal family life and through family, friends, and peers I learned it was not ‘ok’ to be gay. It was an issue never to be discussed at the dinner table, so I couldn’t see the scary and wonderful things held secret in my personality as being ‘gay’. C

A lot of gay people might know the strengths of denial and expectation which didn’t allow me to think I might be different to my brothers. I should have, as my own mother had been in a loving lesbian relationship for years. It was during my leaving cert year my parents sat us down and filled us in. It was confusing and difficult for a while, but I remember I knew straight away that it would be alright, that it was part of who my mam really was.

As the dust settled, the important things began to emerge - my folks were like teenagers again, taking on life in a whole new way. I had to know ‘married’ and ‘gay’ as a straight guy dealing with the coming out of a close of close family member, before I could confront the my own silent understanding of who I was. At 24 it became a spoken understanding – I am Sean, I am carefree and I am gay.

For being something so related to our nature it also needs to be seen as part of people’s social life. As a human thing, the LGBTQ community should be considered equals in terms of marriage and legal rights. If a government works to ensure that all civilians are to have freedom, happiness, education and health then that should be extended to all individuals. Some simple things such as getting married, having a family are part of life’s essence that should be extended to all human beings.

Don't miss the launch of our gay night GLASS Sat 18th -11pm till late Free drink of your choice on arrival

I come from a country that is quite well developed in terms of human rights and civil laws related to the LGBTQ community, but some cultural aspects like the stereotype of “macho” man works towards prejudice within the LGBTQ community. So the meaning of being human is not a local fight, it is something that belongs to the world community.

*when you show your pride programme*

We’ll also be having a party on the 25th(Pride March Night) to celebrate in style

We all have the desire to be happy. If what makes us happy is not infringing on the health and happiness of others then who are they to stop us.

In my point of view homosexuality is something extremely normal that comes from within our natural instincts. It is so natural that even animals demonstrate some kind of interaction with others of the same sex.

Dublin Pride Festival 2011: It’s a human thing.

“There are so many qualities that make up a human being... by the time I get through with all the things that I really admire about people, what they do with their private lives is probably so low on the list that it is irrelevant.” ~Paul Newman I’m much more than gay. I’m a daughter and a sister; a journalist and a busker; a volunteer and a friend. However, as I go about all of these duties, in 2011 Ireland, I am forced to hide a sacred part of my human-ness. My feelings towards those I love. It sounds small, but as I sit down with my dad over coffee, I want to be able to talk about the new girl I’m getting to know, without performing a quick scan of the area around me to make sure no-one will hear. Being proudly gay for me isn’t about what I do intimately with others, it’s about sharing my love with whoever I wish - no hiding. At Pride on the 25th of June I’ll be marching for the human-ness that is being proudly gay. I’ll be marching to love whoever and share that love with whomever I please without worry of hate, no-matter what my status in life.
