Cork Pride is always a highlight in the rainbow calendar, with the legendary parade being an unmissable LGBT+ event of the year.
The theme this year has been announced as ‘This Is Me’ and they have released a video alongside the announcement saying:
“Cork has such a unique, diverse and multicultural LGBT+ community and we couldn’t be prouder!
“No matter what your sexuality or how you identify, you are beautiful just the way you are!
“So come to join us from Sunday, July 29th – Sunday, August 5th for the Cork LGBT+ Pride Festival and celebrate your Pride in who you are!”
The video features members of Cork’s LGBT+ community talking about their hobbies.
Taking place at the end of July, Cork Pride just a little over a month away and the south of Ireland will be alive with colour as people take to the streets in their droves to celebrate everything LGBT+.
