In March 1983, Dublin’s first large scale mobilisation of the LGBTQ community took place when, in response to Justice Sean Gannon’s lenient ruling on the murderers of Declan Flynn, a gay man who was beaten to death in Fairview Park.
This is the event that lead to the birth of Dublin Pride when Ireland’s LGBT community started demanding equal rights under the law. This year, as we face into our greatest challenge to date, the marriage equality referendum, we will remember that first protest with a vigil at the Wood Quay Amphitheatre with speeches from activist veterans Tonie Walsh and Ciaran McKinney.
We ask all those attending to bring €5 for the Yes Equality campaign so that when we all reunite in June for this year’s Dublin Pride festival we have something truly worth celebrating.
