Ennis, County Clare – Hello, County Clare! We have some exciting news to share with you. QuareClare and the Clare Pride 2023 committee, is thrilled to unveil the theme for this year’s Clare Pride: “Stand Up, Stand Out, Stand Proud.” Let’s dive in and explore the significance of this empowering theme.
At its core, “Stand Up, Stand Out, Stand Proud” is a powerful call to action. It beckons individuals from all walks of life to embrace their true selves, express their identities with confidence, and stand up for their rights and the rights of others. This theme serves as a powerful reminder that we are all unique and deserving of respect, visibility, and acceptance.
Clare has made remarkable strides towards fostering inclusivity and acceptance of the LGBTQIA+ community in recent years. With this theme, QuareClare and the Clare Pride 2023 committees aim to build upon this progress and create a vibrant, safe, and supportive environment for all community members.
We recognize the challenges faced by the LGBTQIA+ community, such as prejudice, discrimination, and a lack of understanding. “Stand Up, Stand Out, Stand Proud” strives to address these issues head-on by encouraging individuals to be courageous, stand up against discrimination, and unapologetically celebrate their authentic selves. It is a powerful call for unity, resilience, and solidarity among community members and allies alike.
Clare Pride 2023 promises an array of captivating events, engaging activities, and enlightening discussions, all centred around the theme. Expect thought-provoking, engaging and entertaining events throughout the wee of Clare Pride (September 18-24). These initiatives will foster dialogue, educate, and celebrate our diverse identities, creating an environment where everyone feels accepted and supported.
We extend our deepest gratitude to the Clare Pride 2023 committee for their unwavering dedication and collaborative efforts in selecting this captivating theme. Together, we aim to ensure that Clare Pride remains an extraordinary event that not only celebrates the achievements of the LGBTQIA+ community but also advocates for a more inclusive and accepting society.
We invite individuals, organizations, and businesses in Clare to embrace the “Stand Up, Stand Out, Stand Proud” theme and join us in making Clare Pride 2023 a remarkable celebration of diversity, love, and equality.
