Mid Ulster Pride
For two Years Mid Ulster Pride (MUP) have been working towards removing the isolation felt by the rural LGBTQI+ community of Ulster; tackling outdated attitudes towards LGBTQI+ in the education system and working with local councils to create campaigns against homophobic street harassment. In September 2020 MUP hosted Irelands first ever rural pride parade with coherence to the government guidelines at the time. After their first parade I was invited to joined MUP’s committee in November 2020.
Since then I have been working on projects such as introducing queer literature in to public libraries, working with local government to introduce LGBTQI+ education into schools. film nights, casual graphic content for the social media pages and posters for queer events.
