Galway Pride is a vibrant organisation based in the heart of Galway City who are responsible for the organisation and execution of LGBT+ Pride in Galway city and county. Each year a new group of people come on board to organise a weeklong festival of events ranging from educational nights to mental health information evenings. We aim to create a week where people can openly and safely share their identities, share their stories and celebrate who they are.
Our mission is “To coordinate and facilitate an annual Pride Celebration to celebrate and showcase the diversity of the LGBT+ Community in and around Galway”.
Galway Pride aims to reflect equally the diversity within the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community by encouraging positive participation from the community. We actively advocate to achieve a solid and safe support structure for the LGBT community in Galway. We aim to provide awareness, educational and training events and workshops and endeavour to support and promote a socially-inclusive society.
We’ve been running for 28 years now and it’s been a lot of fun!
