Outcomers Drogheda will be joining LGBTQ+ organisations from around the country marching in the Dublin Pride Parade on Saturday next, 25th June.
Members of the local LGBTQ+ community (and family/friends) are welcome to join in the parade and help celebrate the first Dublin Pride Parade in three years.
Outcomers Drogheda are also organising a Special Pride Bus from Drogheda to Dublin and back again on Saturday 25th June so people from the area can travel to and from the Dublin Pride Parade/Festivities in a safe and inexpensive way.
With the concerning rise in attacks against LGBTQ+ people around the country recently, Outcomers thought it would be helpful to provide transport for the local LGBTQ+ community so they can travel to the festivities in a safe way, while also feeling free to be themselves.

The bus will depart across from Dominic’s Take Away, George’s Street, Drogheda no later than 10am on Saturday 25th June.
Cost - €10 per person Return. Return bus time will be arranged on the day.
For Pride Month, our regular informal & confidential Drop-in will also be a special PRIDE @ THE PICTURES event.
At our Drop-in on Thursday 30th June, as well as our usual chats & cuppas, we will also be Screening the Award-winning RTE documentary Did Anyone Notice Us, which explores representations of LGBTQ+ people in the Irish media up until decriminalisation in 1993.
We encourage members of our community to take Pride in Irish LGBTQ+ history & join us for this special screening from 7pm-9pm at Barlow House on Narrow West st, Drogheda (thanks as always to the kind support of Droichead Arts Centre).
Outcomers Drogheda LGBTQ+ Drop-In’s are a safe space for members of the LGBTQ+ community (aged 18+) to come for support, information or just to socialise.
Find them on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram for more information.
Happy Pride 2022 all 😊
