Since Ireland's Pride parades are as cancelled this year as Boris Johnson's response to COVID-19, it's important that we still celebrate in anyway we can!
Gaylgeoirí is setting out to raise €5,000 throughout the month of June in aid of BeLonGTo , TENI , The Rainbow Project Northern Ireland , and Shout Out ; four amazing Irish LGBTQ+ charities...but that takes a village people! Pride serves as the biggest fundraiser for each of these charities, and with the physical parades cancelled, they are suffering. 100% of the money raised with be split evenly between these charities, and will help support their activities.
All you need to do is use the hashtag #SlayAtHome2020 when you stay at home, and take a photo or video of you going about your daily quarantine routine with a very special twist...make it glam for Pride! So whether you’re strutting through Aldi in full drag, or struggling through your hour of exercise in a pair of heels, make sure that you WERK it.
Nominate your friends and family members to take part, and make sure to tag @Gaylgeoiri across Facebook , Instagram , Twitter , and Tik Tok (yeah, we’re down with the kids), because we’ll be following our favourites and featuring them on our profile! Just because we can't celebrate Pride in the streets this year, doesn't mean we can't celebrate from home. So throw on your best heels, doll yourself up, and get ready to slay at home for Pride 2020.
