Galway Pride History

The year 1989 saw Galway’s first ever Pride Parade. The local LGBT community got together and discussed the volume of homophobic behaviour and acknowledged that visibility was very important both for the heterosexual community and the LGBT community.

Nuala Ward visited her friends Jane Talbot & Natalie Zebolt and after that meeting the girls offered to organise a Pride Parade. Over the next four nights, Jane, Natalie and Nuala were busy in the Macnas workshop making a banner and a giant pink carnation. Nuala made little flyers and cycled around to the houses of her lesbian friends delivering them.
