Pride is all about community, so where better to celebrate this year’s Dublin Pride than at Outhouse, the city’s LGBTQ+ Centre? If you’re getting ready for the parade or you prefer to avoid the crowds and still be part of the celebration, Outhouse has a fantastic lineup of events catering to everyone.

This Saturday, June 24, Outhouse will throw open its doors from 10am for its traditional Pride breakfast to set you up for the day. But breakfast is just the beginning of the scintillating menu of activities to carry you all the way to 4.30pm.

The lineup captures the vibrant spirit and diversity of Pride in the best possible way. If you want to get your glitz and glamour on in a home-away-from-home, there will be dressing rooms available in the Loft until 2pm while Pride Nails will take up residency in the Red Room to make sure you’re covered right down to your tips.

Whether you’re a glitter-loving unicorn or a quiet rainbow warrior, Outhouse’s rainbow matchmakers will help you find the perfect Pride pals to join you at the parade – and who knows, you could end up making lifelong friends.

If the party gets a bit too much, there’ll be a Wind Down Space in the Library, allowing you to rejuvenate in a calm, safe space. 

But if you want to get your dancing shoes on, the Theatre at Outhouse will host an unforgettable Pride Disco, featuring Pride anthems from all decades that will keep you moving to the beat from 10am to 3pm.


The afternoon will see some of the best queer talents on offer. Kicking off at 2.30pm, there’ll be an open mic in the Red Room, followed by the Dublin Casual LGBT+ Choir at 4pm.

Meanwhile, downstairs there will be a drag cabaret in the Theatre from 3pm, hosted by the charismatic Seán D’Olier, featuring Jaded and Francesca Filler. Jack Madden will be on hand to serenade you with glittery pop tunes from 4pm.

The team from Outhouse will be marching in the parade, leaving at 11.30. Everyone is invited to join them but if you do plan to stick around the centre, you can watch all the colours on the live stream in the Red Room from 12pm to 2pm.

Outhouse is a dedicated non-alcohol space on the day but the café will have lots of food available, from sandwiches to freshly baked goods and tasty snacks to keep you going.  So make sure you’re part of an extraordinary experience that embodies love, acceptance, and unity at Outhouse this Pride.
