In this video blog Michael O'Flaherty focuses on EuroPride and the need to stand up for the fundamental rights of the LGBTIQ community.
June is Pride month. The month in which we celebrate the role of the LGBTIQ communities within our societies. 2019 is a very special Pride as it is the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall riots. That moment in June 1969 when the LGBTI communities of New York shouted "Enough! It's time that we claim our rights." In 2019, let's renew that cry for justice and equality.
We can make a difference, we will make a difference.
This 50th anniversary celebration is a reminder of the extent to which things can change and must change.
