June is Pride month, an opportunity for the LGBTQ+ community and their allies to stand, openly and visibly in celebration of diversity, acceptance and equality.
In this special edition of You OK? Executive Director of BeLonGTo, Moninne Griffith, Broadcaster and DJ, Kate Brennan Harding and Head of Fundraising & Events at Dublin Pride, Eddie McGuinness, talk about the importance of Pride, how vital self-acceptance is to mental wellbeing and the impact of Covid-19 restrictions on the mental health of LGBTQ+ people.
You can find out more about the work of BeLonGTo at belongto.org and access information about next weekend's Digital Dublin Pride at dublinpride.ie. There’s also plenty of Pride activity to check out later in the Summer in Cork, Galway, Limerick and Belfast.
Join the Virtual Pride Parade on Sunday 28th June by sharing photos, videos, tweets and stories using #virtualprideparade. Happy Pride!
