Trans Pride NI
Trans Pride NI Event Celebrating Gender Diversity and Transgender People
On the 31st of May and 1st of June 2019 history will be made, when the first multi-event Trans Pride NI Festival takes place, celebrating gender diversity and transgender people at events in Belfast city centre.
Themed “Celebrating Gender Diversity” this year’s festivities will include a vibrant and colourful march, discussions and an art exhibition on what it is like to be Trans, Intersex or Non-binary.
Open to everyone, the main Trans Pride NI Festival march will start at Buoy Park at noon on Saturday 1st June and take a short loop through Belfast city centre before returning to Buoy Park at 12.30pm.
Michael Steven (Trans Pride NI) quote:
“We very much look forward to families, friends and community groups attending this celebration to support Trans rights and those of the wider LGBT+ community including TNBI (Trans, Non-Binary and Intersex) because Trans rights need to be the same human rights shared by everyone.”
