Sligo Pride Public Consult & AGM 2019

This year Sligo saw the return of Sligo Pride Festival to the streets of Sligo City. Hundred turned out to show their Pride and solidarity with members of the LGBT+ community in Sligo and the North-West. We will be hosting a public consultation and AGM on Friday, September 13 from 4pm until 6pm in Sligo City Hall.

This is the first time in history of Pride in Sligo in which a public AGM will be hosted in Sligo City Hall. We are looking forward to meeting with the wider Sligo community to hear your thoughts on Sligo Pride 2019 and plans for the future. Pride is both a celebration and a continued protest, as such it makes sense to send a clear message that LGBT+ members of the community are supported by their local government.

If you are interested in joining the Sligo Pride Committee or volunteering with us over the next year to make Sligo Pride Festival bigger and better next year, please do get in touch with us. Email us at or contact us through our website You can also find us on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.

Sligo Pride Festival

Sligo Pride Festival launched in 2019 when members of Sligo's LGBTIQA+ community came together to present, "Sligo Pride Comeback". This formed the 'unofficial' theme for Pride that year, as it was surely a Comeback tour-de-force for organisers preparing and networking with three festivals, namely The Outing Festival, Dublin LGBTQ Pride and of course Sligo Summer Festival with just four weeks to get the job done. In 2020, we liaised with EPOA/InterPride to join in GlobalPride2020, partnered with Dublin LGBTQ Pride again and helped support Pride Inside ~ the Digital Pride for rural Irish Prides.
