This Pride month, we want you to share your story, experience, advice and opinions on what it's like to be an LGBTI+ person of colour (POC) with other young people across Ireland. Pride is a time for celebration and acceptance for the LGBTI+ community in Ireland ,and with the Black Lives Matter movement gaining momentum, we want to hear from black LGBTI+ young people and other POC on this topic. By sharing your story, you can help support other young people across Ireland.

Share your story 

As a young LGBTI+ person of colour, we want to hear from you. Here are some ideas to get you started: 

  • What does Pride mean to you?
  • What are your plans for celebrating Pride this year? How has COVID-19 impacted it? 
  • What advice would you have for any LGBTI+ young people who may be struggling during this time? 
  • How do you think young LGBTI+ people of colour can be better supported in Ireland?
  • Anything else you want to share?
