Queer Action Ireland Won't Take Part In Pride Festival, Because Of Garda Involvement.

: 06/12/2019 - 15:29

Queer Action Ireland says it will not take part in the Dublin Pride festival this year due to the involvement of An Garda Siochana.

Uniformed Gardai will march in the parade for the first time this year.

QAI says the participation of the Gardai is in "direct opposition to the liberatory principles of Pride".

The group also says it won't be involved in a parade which welcomes corporations who see the gay community as "no more than a marketing demographic".
