THIS June, Waterford will see its first Pride march in over a decade as part of the Pride of the Déise festival.
Taking place over the June bank holiday weekend, the four-day festival promises an event-packed lineup with music, film, workshops, and, of course, glitzy cabaret!
“For years, many of us had to venture to a lot of the bigger cities since there wasn’t something on here, now we have a full Pride weekend here in Waterford and that’s fantastic,” said Sasha Terfous, Pride of the Déise secretary.
“Having Pride on our own doorstep is incredibly positive”.
The parade itself takes place on Saturday, June 4, when proud members of LGBTQ+ community and allies will meet at Cathedral Square in the Viking Triangle before striding along the Quay to Hanover Street, followed by speeches and entertainment.
The march departs at 2pm with everyone invited to a celebratory Cultural Quarter Block Party at 6:30pm.
