Hundreds of people have attended the first ever Pride parade in Omagh, Co Tyrone.

Organisers said it was important that members of the LGBT+ community be visible in their own town.

The parade went through Omagh's main street before returning to the assembly point for a concert.

Cat Brogan who helped organise the event said many young people in rural Irish towns had left in order to live their lives as they wanted.

She said that was beginning to change and Pride events in rural communities were an important part of that.

John O’Doherty of the Rainbow Project said it was an important day that allowed LGBT+ people to feel accepted in the places that they lived.
