This year marks 40 years of Pride parade in Dublin. What work do you feel still has to be done?
I think there’s a lot of members of the LGBTQ+ community that don’t feel safe these days in Dublin. It’s a scary thought. We need to listen to them, we need to help them and we don’t need a debate!!
What does Pride Mean to you?
For me, Pride is a celebration with your friends. A day to celebrate yourself and equality!
I think it’s also a day to look back at the people who’ve gone past us that haven’t been able to be themselves… Even for people now who are either afraid, cant or don’t know about being themselves – You’re marching, shouting for them!
What is your favourite Pride memory so far?
I used to live in Temple Bar behind the front lounge! There was ALWAYS (probably still is) a massive buzz on that street every Pride. We used to put the speakers out the window and play music – we’d be having such a massive party!
