The Taoiseach will continue his two day visit to the North today.
He is attending a Pride breakfast in Belfast and has said he will make no compromises on equality for anyone.
His support of the event has divided political opinion in the North and comes as he warns Brexit is the challenge of our generation.
His intervention has been welcomed by Sinn Féin's Gerry Adams.
"The majority of people here have voted against Brexit," he said.
"What this all boils down to is whether unionism is clinging to the relevance of the old order or whether it's prepared to accept that this State has changed utterly."
