Someone said :
I'd miss it anyway even if I wasn't doing the workshop as I'm not interested.

But you told us how disappointed you were about the cutbacks in signers, and you say you're not interested in Pride? I thought even lesbians were interested in Pride?

Be a nice occasion to ask a fellow Gairen out on a date? Just a thought.

Few questions for you guys. Is there an official pride club night anywhere? Previous years it has been in Button Factory and Tripod I think? Is it any good? Ended up in the george past two years which I don't want to happen again, also is it true Mother will not be throwing a street party? This makes me sad if its true as the past three years it has been the highlight of my pride

The George seems to be hosting the offical pride party.

Mother will be on as normal but I'm not sure if they are having a street party. They usually do though.

There's supposedly a protest on Saturday too, busy day in town. An Anglo protest, not an anti pride thing.

They should bring that forward to Friday or put it off to Sunday for their own sake. It'll just get lost in Pride.

One may be disappointed about the cutbacks in interpreters (not signers, there is a difference) and still not be interested in the event in itself.

I am thinking of access for other deaf people who ARE going to Pride.

I wasn't thinking of the implications for myself. I'm not THAT self-absorbed.

I am sure other people do the same thing, think of impacts of decisions on other people.

I'm going on the march but I don't know if I'll hang on at Merrion Square, considering the decision to curtail the speeches.

Merrion Square was pretty bad last year, but I'm interested to see how they'll address the issues this year. I do think the new route is really bad though, that was one thing which hugely disappointed me last year. There's no really easy solution to it, either we keep the old route and have the party in the Civic Offices (which can't hold everyone), or have the new crap route and have the party in Merrion Square. If the Merrion Square party isn't good, though, it's really not a good trade-off.

Either way, I have to go to the George for around 5, so I'll be at the party for less than 2 hours most likely.

What other route would you suggest then?

I enjoyed Merrion Square last year. Given last year was the first year the afterparty was held in that location, there would be teething problems. Dublin Pride gets bigger every year so holding the afterpary at the Civic Office isnt really an option anymore.

Mycroft was right earlier. You can't please everyone!

Nassau St, Kildare St and Baggot St were absolutely dead. It was a far cry from the throngs of people on Dame St in recent years helping to provide a fantastic carnival atmosphere. Last year it felt like we were marching through a post-apocalyptic wasteland.

You still havn't answered my question of an alternative route!

One suggestion I have would have would be go down along the quays as far as the Civic Offices, take the left up to Christcurch ( even though it's one way ) then take the next left turn at Christ Church Cathedral , which would then bring the parade the opposite direction down Dame street and then continue on to Merrion Square.

It would make the route longer and I am not sure how viable it would be given the disruption to traffic is would cause, but it's the only other route I can think of.
