How to show your support this Pride

As the annual parade brings the Pride Month celebrations to a halt for another year, you can still support Ireland’s LGBTQ+ communities by donating to charities and organisations.

LGBT Ireland is an organisation that runs helplines that listen to and support members of the LGBTQ+ community. They are open seven days a week and have an online chat service.

TENI (Transgender Equality Network Ireland) is working hard to end transphobia here in Ireland.

The organisation holds workshops to raise awareness for trans issues and helps to support trans people who feel isolated and excluded in society. TENI works in four main areas: healthcare, education, employment, and legislation to make Irish society a place where trans people can thrive.

Belong To is Ireland’s national LGBTQ+ youth organisation which caters to young people between the ages of 14 and 23. The mission of the organisation is to create safe spaces for LGBTQ+ communities and educate others on the topic so they can learn how to support them.
