GAA to be represented in Belfast Pride Parade

Ulster GAA is pleased to confirm that the Association will be participating in this year’s Belfast Pride Parade on Saturday 30th July. It is the first time that there will be an official Ulster GAA involvement at Pride, and representatives from Ulster Camogie and Ulster Ladies Gaelic will also be involved on the day. Ulster GAA CEO/Provincial Secretary, Brian McAvoy said:

 

“It is encouraging that the Belfast Pride Festival is returning after an absence due to the pandemic. The GAA is an inclusive organisation which is committed to the principles of inclusion and diversity. Our manifesto, ‘Where We All Belong,’ is a statement of recognition that our members and supporters are drawn from all walks of life. Everyone is welcome to participate in and enjoy our games and activities. Ulster GAA extends an invitation to our members and their friends and families to join with us at the Belfast Parade on 30th July, in solidarity with the membership of the LGBT+ community.”

 

Belfast Pride is the biggest event of the year for LGBT+ people in Belfast, with the parade last taking place in 2019. This year’s event will start at 1pm, with build-up from 11.30am.

 

The route for the Belfast Pride Parade 2022 will be announced shortly. For more info, visit belfastpride.com. If any members of the GAA in Ulster would like to participate in the Gaelic Games section of the parade, then please complete the form at ulster.gaa.ie/pride .
