Mid-Ulster Pride, the Province’s first Rural LGBTQ+ organisation has officially launched their Pride Celebrations for 2022.

Every year Mid-Ulster Pride has a “Focus” - an aspect of LGBTQ+ life that they chose to shine a light on. The first parade focused on the challenges of isolation in the rural community space and used the strict lockdown measures to highlight this.
