Proud to be part of Pride

The Workers Party was “proud to be part of Pride” at Saturday’s Belfast Pride – Ireland’s largest Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Trans festival.

“It is important that we send out a message that prejudice and intolerance have no place in the new society envisaged by The Good Friday Agreement.

Unfortunately, we still have a long way to go in realising that goal. We are well aware of the persistence of sectarianism in Northern Ireland but equally objectionable is the rise of homophobic and anti gay and lesbian attitudes including increasing violent attacks.The Workers Party support  and our participation in the Belfast Pride event is an important act of solidarity with all those who are subject to  prejudice and intolerance and is a clear signal about the type of inclusive and tolerant society we want to build”
