Trans Pride Dublin

PRESS RELEASE:

– The second Trans Pride Dublin to take place this coming Saturday
– The theme of this year’s march will be “Break the Binary”

This Saturday, 6 July the second annual Trans Pride will take place in Dublin. The theme of these year’s march is “Break the Binary” to highlight our opposition to oppressive and rigid gender norms in our society. More broadly this is a protest for the rights and needs of the trans community, but also where we can celebrate our victories.

Trans Pride Dublin is a grassroots, community led and corporation-free event that wants to highlight and centrally feature the voices and needs of the trans community. This is a trans event and we want to see as many members of our community as possible, but we are also welcoming non-trans people and our allies, in our communities and in the trade union movement, to come and show their support for the trans community.

We will be gathering at the Garden of Remembrance at 12pm and will have a short rally, followed by a march to Merrion Square where our final rally will take place.

Ollie Bell, Trans Pride organiser says:
“Trans Pride is a corporation-free grassroots protest where we can demand our rights as well as celebrating how far we have come. Everyone who supports Trans rights is welcome.”

Thomas White, Trans Pride organiser says:
“50 Years since Stonewall and 27 years since the death of Marsh P Johnson we are continuing the fight for Trans liberation and showing that we will not be silenced any longer. Pride is a protest.”
