The 2021 Cork LGBT+ Pride Festival, a dazzling week of events from  July 24 to August 1.

Events across the full week of the 2021 Cork LGBT+ Pride Festival promise to bring a healthy service of joy, a welcome counterfoil to the past year of sombre societal thoughts. 

The Covid-19 pandemic, of course, means that the Cork Pride Board and Committee have again this year had to work hard to bring the festival back to the people of Cork.
