Galway Pride are hosting a tea party in The Secret Garden Galway for our BTQIA+ community members, and we are excited to co-host. Relax, enjoy some of the best tea and cakes in Galway, and make some new queer besties!
Our incredible founder Aoife O'Riordan spoke on the Dublin LGBTQ Pride stage this June, check out the speech video and text below.
Text of Aoife's Speech
Hi, Dublin Pride!
My name is Aoife O’Riordan. I’m bisexual, and I am not confused.
I am not confused about my sexuality. Love and desire are things which demand to be felt. They are compasses that drive us not only to others, but to the very essence of who truly we are.
I’m not confused about my bisexuality, but some things do confuse me.
I am confused as to why bi people make up half of our beautiful community, and yet when I founded Bi+ Ireland, there was no organisation dedicated to serving our needs.
I’m confused as to why so many people come to our organisation having never knowingly met, seen, or even heard of another bi+ person.
Token - Dublin is an amazing accessible arcade and event space. We have an event area reserved (BYO-boardgames!) from 4pm until 7.30pm. After 7.30pm we can move to the arcade space upstairs or onwards to another venue.
In order to reserve the space, we're ordering platters of food (20 * €6 = €120) for everyone to share (food arriving at 6pm). We'll have a donations bucket and operate on a sliding scale based on what folks can afford.
Usual Event disclaimers:
Come hang out with some fellow bi sexuals! You can pop in (and out) at any time that suits you!
As always, our event is opening to any and all to identify under the bi+ umbrella (bisexuals, pansexuals, queer, polysexual, and all other non-monosexual identities) and their partners.
Please note that this event on FB is PUBLIC, and interacting with the event page may result in the page showing up in your news feed to your friends. If you would prefer for that to not happen, but would like to register interest or have any queries about the event - feel free to reach out to us via the Bi+ Ireland Facebook page.
