The theme for Belfast Pride 2014 is ‘Diverse. Equal. Proud.’
Diverse – There are a wide range of identities under the umbrella at Pride – Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer and more – we want everyone to feel that they are included. We all just want to live our lives, enriching Belfast on an equal basis with the rest of the citizens of the city.
Equal – We just want the same rights as other citizens – full Marriage Equality for all and all of our MLAs to vote for it, to be able to help save lives by donating blood, more robust protection from Homophobia, Transphobia and Bullying on the streets, in schools, in Health Services as well as equal treatment and respect from government and our elected representatives. We are proud of who we are and we want full Equality – no more and no less.
Proud – Pride is a time for Visibility, Positivity and Celebration. We want to showcase the talent, creativity, history and culture of the LGBTQ+ community in Belfast, bringing colour, fun and entertainment across a packed, ten day, festival programme.
