Happy Pride Month! We’ve partnered up with Rainbow Dublin to give you all the details on how to get involved and celebrate in the City of Dublin. Rainbow Dublin is the city’s first LGBTQ+ Community Alliance and has been working since its conception to serve LGBTQ+ people and their families by striving to make the communities where they live, work, and gather more equitable and welcoming. 

Come out for Pride in Dublin.

About Rainbow Dublin 

Two young women wearing LGBTQIA+ flags over their shoulders.

Bobby Weston, president of Rainbow Dublin, saw Dublin as the perfect place to start a family with his husband when they moved here in 2020, but he noticed a lack of LGBTQ+ presence in the community. So, he set out to start one himself and created Rainbow Dublin.  

What started as a Facebook page in 2021 has grown into a state-recognized nonprofit that has helped the city of Dublin become a safer and more inclusive place for the LGBTQ+ community by providing a safe space, resources and aiding in the adoption of the city’s non-discrimination ordinance.  

Rainbow Dublin doesn’t just celebrate Pride in June! Along with their Pride celebration, Rainbow Dublin also hosts an annual Coming Out Party as a way to foster community and show those new to the LGBTQ+ community that they are not alone. Stay tuned for more information about this year's coming-out party!
