Pride Weekend

Pride Weekend

How amazing is it that Google goes into Pride colours as soon as you type in Dublin Pride 2013? Very cool. It’s a testament to how Pride Weekend has become one of the city’s best-loved festivals in recent times, taking over the most streets and venues. This year the parade and partying looks set to be bigger and bolder than ever, with inspirational Polish transgender MP Anna Grodzka as Grand Marshall of the parade. All tastes are catered for this year, with events ranging from family friendly, to glitzy, from bright and early in the morning til raucous and late at night. Carnivalesque, spangled, glamorous and fierce, here’s our guide to a happy Pride Weekend –

Crowd
