Northern Ireland Human Rights Commission supports Belfast Pride 2023

21 Jul 2023

The Northern Ireland Human Rights Commission is delighted to support this year’s Belfast Pride festival. The Commission will be taking a stall in the Pride Village at the Big Fish, Donegall Quay, from 12pm on Saturday 29th of July.

Speaking ahead of Pride, Chief Commissioner of NIHRC, Alyson Kilpatrick, said:

‘We are delighted to be supporting Pride again this year. Pride provides an important time to reflect on the progress that has been made in LGBTQIA+ rights.

However, there is still some way to go in the full realisation of human rights for everyone in the LGBTQIA+ community. No one should face discrimination or violence based on their sexual orientation, gender identity or sex characteristics.

I would encourage everyone to get out and support the Pride festival, celebrate LGBTQIA+ rights, and stop by the Commission’s stall in Pride Village and hear about our work in protecting and promoting human rights for everyone in Northern Ireland.’
