Sinn Féin Councillor Caoimhe McKnight has encouraged people to attend events organised as part of the annual Foyle Pride festival.
Caoimhe McKnight said:
“Sinn Féin in Derry are absolutely delighted to be supporting the 2017 Foyle Pride festival.
“The struggle for equality goes on and we must ensure that people here in Derry have the same rights as those elsewhere on this island.
“Sinn Féin want a rights based society which guarantees rights to all citizens, be it language rights, a bill of rights or Marriage Equality.
“I would encourage you all to read the festival programme and support events organised as part of the Foyle Pride Festival, It’s fun and inclusive and there’s something for all the family.
“The annual parade will take place on Saturday 26th August, leaving Waterside station at 2pm.
“I would like to wish everyone a happy, healthy and safe pride.”
