Bród/Pride 2022 🏳️‍🌈

At Léargas we  believe in Pride every day.  To celebrate Pride month this year, Áine Beamish, Communications officer at Léargas compiled a short list of information that we think is interesting, important and useful during the final week in Pride month 2022. 

Happy Pride/Bród Iontach!

In May, we hosted an international event in Dublin called Queerasmus. This Erasmus+ Training and Cooperation Activity for youth workers and those working with LGBTQ+ young people, was attended by 27 people from 13 European countries.  Attendees exchanged ideas, shared best practices and collaborated on how to best support LGBTQ+ young people through Erasmus+. 

To celebrate the European Year of Youth 2022, Microgrants are available to youth organisations. The grants of up to 5000 per project are available. Bradóg Youth Service received a grant and celebrated with a Pride launch party.

Pride Month 

Pride Month is celebrated every June as a tribute to those involved in the Stonewall Riots. The Stonewall Riots, also called the Stonewall Uprising, began in the early hours of 28 June 1969, when New York City police raided the Stonewall Inn, a gay club in Greenwich Village in New York City.

The Dublin Pride Parade is a celebration of LGBTQ+ people and culture; the celebration and colour of the parade play an essential role in promoting diversity, inclusion and belonging within society. 

The first Dublin pride parade was on Saturday, 25 June 1983.
