We are so happy to say that Belfast Pride was named was ‘Event of the Year’ at The GALAS Awards in the Mansion House in Dublin on the 21st October, in front of a capacity audience of 500 people representing LGBT people in community groups, politics, the arts, education, business and beyond. Belfast Pride set out to ‘Demand Change’ this year and tens of thousands joined in the festival to celebrate their lives, demand Equality and celebrate the best of Belfast.
The organiser of Belfast Pride’s ‘Poetry with Pride’ event and Editor of our ‘Demand Change’ poetry pamphlet, Toby Buckley was also nominated in the Arts & Literature category – a great achievement for a new project.
We had a huge range of events – 134 over 10 days, representing the full diversity of our community and this award is for everyone who took part in Belfast Pride this year and made it so special! #demandchange #bproud2017 #GALAS2017 WeAre2023
