Traditionally, June has been a time for the LGBTQ+ community to celebrate Pride through rainbow-hued parties and parades across the globe. Unfortunately, due to COVID-19, many of those annual celebrations have been cancelled - but don't put those flags away just yet.
The Digital Dublin Pride Festival is set to run for a full 10 days, starting on June 18, with everything from online quizzes and pet parades to soapbox sessions and mental health workshops.
RTÉ is celebrating its partnership with the Dublin Digital Pride and this year's #virtualprideparade on Sunday 28th June, by hosting a special Pride weekend, on-air and online, including two days of music, interviews and entertainment across RTÉ 2FM and two special RTÉ Concert Orchestra performances, and much more.
Saturday 27th June will also feature a special collaboration between 2FM and Mother, the popular LGBTQ+ club night, who will play an exclusive two-hour Pride weekend DJ set.
Here's what you can look forward on RTÉ 2FM:
5pm- 7pm: Conor Behan plays essential Pride anthems
7pm – 9pm: Jenny Green presents Electric Disco Pride Special
9pm -11pm: Mother Pride Weekend DJ set, only on 2FM
