Northern Ireland Human Rights Commission supports Belfast Pride 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.’
