Dublin, Ireland Adds Ukrainian Colors to LGBTQ Pride Flag


Is Ukraine a sexuality or gender?

In the latest remake of the LGBTQ Pride flag, Dublin LGBTQ+ added Ukrainian colors to the background.

Pride Month became even more confusing with the latest cornucopia of bright colors and designs dawning the LGBTQ flag.

From Dublin LGBTQ+ Pride:

While the Dublin Pride March and Parade take place at the same time and merge into each other, they are two distinct events, each with its own important purpose. Following the Stonewall uprising in 1969 it was agreed that “Out of the ideas and ideals of the greater struggle that we are involved, that of our fundamental human rights” a demonstration would take place on the last Saturday of June each year in New York and that other cities would be invited to hold similar demonstrations in solidarity. This annual event became known as Pride and the first Dublin Pride March took place in June 1974, almost a decade before the first Dublin Pride Parade.

At its heart it is protest, but it is also a display of solidarity. If you plan to take part as an individual or with your friends or family, there is no need to register, it is a free event open to everyone who supports the ideals of Pride. You can rock up on the day, watch from the side or join in and march, or a bit of both. Remember, Pride is both Protest and Celebration, you’re welcome to dress up or bring your own banners and make as much noise as you like, however they must be respectful and inclusive of our LGBTQ+ community and not create a safety hazard.

While Ireland has remained neutral regarding the conflict in Ukraine, the European nation has shown support by flying the Ukrainian flag on its government buildings.

The Gateway Pundit noted:

It appears the nation has now chosen to extend its pro-Ukrainian support into the realm of gay rights, even though the support of Ukraine has no bearing on sexual identity or the rights of sexual minorities. 

Dublin LGBTQ+ is a group funded by public and private entities and has displayed the updated flag on its website and social media. However, the group has made no effort to explain the new flag or offer any official statement regarding its design. 

Ireland has been an open-border country, allowing refugees from Ukraine to seek shelter during the Russian invasion thus far. This issue has encountered much controversy, with citizens concerned that Ireland is trading its own identity to shelter refugees from other nations. 

Ciaran Brennan told Breitbart in their report on the updated flag, “You see the blue and the yellow Ukrainian flag more than you see the Irish tricolor on Dublin’s streets.” He expressed his concern that the nation’s neutrality was slowly diminishing as 200,000 refugees are expected to flee to the nation.
