Northern Ireland is to hold transgender pride


Northern Ireland hosted its first ever trans pride in Belfast on Saturday. According to Trans Pride NI, the group behind the festival, hundreds of people attended the event that was the first pride for transgender community held  in  Northern Ireland and the Irish Island in general. Trans Pride NI wrote on Facebook: “Yesterday people from all backgrounds, of different ages, genders, religions, cultures, political views & identities all came together as one.” They thanked the attendees and noted that there should be no exceptions for equality.  Feminist and women’s groups, too, were present – like the Belfast Feminist Network and DV & SV Helpline. Political representatives also attended the event, including those from Sinn Féin, UUP, Green Party, and Alliance Party. The group will be organizing another trans pride next year, which it says will be “bigger and better.” Trans Pride NI also added that it will be holding “future inclusive events.”
