Dublin LGBTQ+ Pride ❤️🧡💛💚💙
Carrolls Irish Gifts has been proud supporters of Dublin LGBTQ+ Pride since 2015 and we are the official 2021 Dublin LGBTQ+ retail partner.
We are proud to say that 20% of all sales from Carrolls Irish Gifts go directly back to the Dublin Pride Parade Fund.
It has been so important to us to partner with Dublin Pride for the past 6 years and to advocate for the LGBTQ+ people. You can #ShopwithPride and feel good knowing 20% of our sales are going directly back into the Dublin Pride Parade Fund and will have an impact on the community.
Together with Dublin Pride, we are on a mission to bring people together to celebrate the history, courage and diversity of the LGBTQ+ community.
Uniting and empowering people with diverse sexual orientations, gender identities, and gender expressions, the annual Dublin Pride Parade has become a major Irish event to celebrate the community.
It is amazing to see just how much the event has grown from when it started over 40 years ago, with a handful of friends having a picnic in a park, celebrating who they are, supporting each other, and dreaming of an Ireland where everyone could be equal and safe.
Although it is incredible to see that the event has grown to a 100,000 people parade through the city, we must remember what the event set out to do. It was set out to stop violence against LGBTQ+ people, to decrimilise homosexuality, to achieve full equality under the law, to celebrate the LGBTQ+ culture and to help create a community to support every member.
This year is different again, the parade will not happen in person. That is why the theme of ‘community’ is so important this year. Community has played such an important role through the last year and has kept everyone in good spirits, supported vulnerable members, and kept everyone dancing!
This year the Grand Marshal is..YOU! Why not lead your friends on a parade through your local park, or come into town and walk the route of the Dublin Pride Parade – but please do make sure you follow all covid restrictions!
At Carrolls, as the official retail partner, we have all the gear to go with your celebrations. Check out our top picks
