Gallery: Brilliant pictures from today's Pride march in Dublin
The streets of Dublin were packed with colour and craic for the annual Pride march through the city
Thousands took to the streets to take part in the annual event, the centrepiece of the 10-day Pride Festival.
The theme of this year's parade was 'The Future is Equal' the parade concluded at the Pride Village near Merrion Square after winding its way from Parnell Square, via O'Connell Street.
Minister for Health Leo Varadkar joined the annual parade for the first time since coming out as a gay man.
This year’s Dublin Pride Festival was particularly sweet for those celebrating following the results of last month’s Marriage Referendum.
“I think this Pride is especially significant because of this referendum passing,” a Parade-goer told Independent.ie
“Pride used to be the only day where I felt free but now that the marriage referendum has passed I feel free every day.”
