This Friday, July 8 at 7 p.m. it hosts a panel discussion in partnership with the Presentation Centre in Enniscorthy over Zoom. The panel will feature local LGBTQIA+ artists discussing their experiences in Ireland, to register your interest and gain access to the event send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with 'Pride Art Panel' in the subject.
On Monday, July 11 at 7 p.m. the Wexford LGBQTIA+ Community Support Group hosts its first meeting in the IFA Centre, Enniscorthy
“Every segment of the LGBTQIA+ community is welcome,” said Rían Browne of the Wexford Pride Committee. “We are conscious that for many our queer identities intersect with other experiences in socially vulnerable groups as such we are committed to cultivating a space that is open and inclusive of all parts of our community including those who are neurodivergent or disabled or members of the traveller, roma or bipoc communities.
These meetings will be held fortnightly.
Meanwhile, Pride on the Quay will take place every Sunday at 2 p.m. at The Pantry Kiosk on Wexford Quay.
'Join us for a cuppa in a safe space to connect with other LGBTQIA+ folks in the local area. New faces are always welcome, whether you're neurodivergent, disabled or a member of the traveller, roma or bipoc communities, we've got a seat at the table for you! Alternative location in bad weather is the additional seating area of the Pantry Restaurant on Church Lane,” said Rían.
