Sinn Féin MP Elisha McCallion has encouraged as many people as possible to take part in this year’s Foyle Pride events.
The Foyle MP said:
“Today I attended the launch of the Foyle Pride 2019 festival and this year’s programme includes great events.
“Pride is all about celebrating the contribution the LGBT community makes to our society but is also about the ongoing fight for equality, including marriage equality.
“The Foyle Pride festival is an excellent event every year and is part of the fabric of our city, culminating in the Pride march.
“Sinn Féin is proud to support Pride and we will continue to do so.
“I would encourage as many people as possible to come along to the festival events, particularly the Pride parade on Saturday August 24th, to stand up for equality and to show ongoing solidarity with our LGBT brothers and sisters.” Ends/Críoch
