RTÉ 2fm And Dublin Pride Festival Announce Media Partnership 2013

28 February: RTÉ 2fm will be the official media partner of the Dublin Pride Festival 2013.

The festival, which celebrates its 30th anniversary this year, will take place this year between Friday 21 June – Sunday 30 June.

Throughout the festival, RTÉ 2fm will be covering events, news and updates, featuring guests involved in Dublin Pride, and broadcasting live from the heart of the celebrations.

The annual festival culminates with thousands of people taking to the streets of Dublin for the Dublin Pride Parade, to be held on Saturday 29th June, which celebrates lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) culture in the capital.

Head of RTÉ 2fm, John McMahon, says: “2fm is delighted to team up with Dublin Pride this year to celebrate thirty years of the festival. We at 2fm share the festival’s ideology of ‘Live, Love, Be Proud’ and look forward to joining in the colour, fun and music that will fill the streets of Dublin this June. The festival, the country and 2fm have come a long way over the past 30 years and we look forward to celebrating the diverse impact on the social, cultural and artistic life of our capital made by the Dublin Pride Festival and its supporters.”

Chris Procter, chairperson of the Dublin Pride Festival, says: “Dublin Pride are excited to have such a wonderful media partner as RTÉ 2fm for this the 30th anniversary of the Dublin Pride Festival. 2fm's support will allow us to reach out to the community on a wider scale than ever before. The Dublin Pride festival is a celebration of respect, love and unity in diversity found within modern Ireland. Everyone should be free to “Live, Love and be Proud” and we are delighted to have 2fm helping us to spread that message."
