Someone said :
It's announced that the Pride Parade will go the old route again.
Well some of it anyway. Maybe not it all?

Unlikely this year, but might meet a friend who is marching.

Lots of companies going with Pride advertisements.
What's the story with the Gardai marching in the parade. What's that all about?

Are they marching for community participation reasons or political and is it to show phobics out there. They'll get a Garda Baton, or a cell mate looking for a bitch to play with?

Community. There’s a political element to Pride but it’s no longer primarily a protest or vent.

What's the story with the Gardai marching in the parade. What's that all about?

Some people who were part of the origins of the modern Dublin Pride feel that at the time they were being harassed by the coppers, and that now it's all pink-washing and pink batons.

There is still a feeling that the Gardaí are not on the community's side: in the past years it may have been a bit of a struggle to get proper protection of the march according to them.

The counter argument is that better late than never, just like better corporate support for lip-service than discrimination at work.

Some see it as a victory of Pride having brought queerness to the mainstream.
Others see it as queerness being absorbed in the face-less apolitical capitalism which is still discriminating against transgender people and others, and have made allies of the gays who are happy to be gentrified.

That's why some of the dissident founders of the Dublin Pride want an Alternative Pride:
Queer Action Ireland are organising a Pride Alternative as [they] cannot consciously participate in Dublin Pride 2019, even in an oppositional radical bloc. Rosie Hackett Bridge, June 29th, 12pm!

They feel that constructive internal opposition is no longer possible.
They will count their support, and if they have as many as in the original 8 of the first protest in 1974, it could be seen as a start.
If they match the 200-strong Protest March following the Fairview Park murder in 1982, it will be a success...

Whatever about the history there, are current gardai not supposed to match because of that??

Interesting analysis Blah, i'm thinking of the 22year old cop who was told he had 10 minutes to get out of the station and the force because they suspected he was gay. That is a wrong that needs to be put right.
