Well done to the young people working on a fantastic project as part of their 10 Week Leadership Program where they produced this great video below to launch the #SafeButNotSilent campaign.
The purpose of the campaign is to show that even though we are stuck indoors due to the global pandemic that we are still here supporting each other through difficult times.

Dublins LGBTQ Pride!
This year Dublin Pride held a fabulous virtual online Pride in honour of our Frontline Essential Workers who have been to the forefront of the battle against Covid-19 and who collectively were Grand Marshall for the parade this year.
Groups representing Dublin LGBTQ+ Pride, The National LGBT Federation, TENI, This Is Me, LGBT Ireland, BeLongTo, HIV Ireland and Queer Diaspora Ireland carried the flag at sunrise from the Garden of Remembrance through O Connell Street accompanied by a small convoy of vehicles representing Frontline Workers.
