"The exclusion of any groups from celebrating our national holiday abroad is deeply discriminatory and rooted in close mindedness.

This is deeply un-Irish and something that we cannot allow to happen in the name of an event that is about celebrating Ireland's rich cultural heritage, of which the LGBT community are a corner stone here in Ireland."

--Frank Cleary of Dublin Pride
