OutWest Coffee Meet-ups

The OutWest Sligo sub-committee have started hosting bi-weekly coffee meet-ups at Penny Café in Sligo. Every second Saturday from 12 to 2pm, members of the LGBTI+ community of Sligo gather on the veranda along the Garvogue river for coffee and chats. The first two meetings on the 19th of June and the 3rd of July were attended by members of the Sligo Pride committee, and they hope to continue to attend in the coming weeks.

If you’re a member of the LGBTI+ Community in the Sligo area looking for something to do this Saturday the 17th of July, why not join us? You can meet and hang out with other members of the community and enjoy some good coffee, or perhaps some elderflower fizz. Sometimes, there’s even cupcakes and dogs…

Bring your friends, bring your pride, and don’t forget to bring a mask. I’ll be there, will you?

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.

About Sligo Pride Festival:

Sligo Pride Festival is a community-lead festival for members of the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender community in Sligo and the surrounding areas. Our aim is to facilitate Pride as an annual festival celebrating diversity and the LGBT+ movement.
