Dublin will host its first ever virutal Pride parade today.

The celebration of LGBTQ+ equality will be a mix of pre-recorded and live elements.

Also it'll be hosted by Paul Ryder and Eddie McGuinness.

Virtual Pride Parade Sets Off From 2pm

The Parade will be broadcast live from 2.00pm and the public can watch through Pride's social media channels or by going to dublinpride.ie/live.

They're encouraged to host their own home-grown or DIY parades and post them on social media using the #virtualdublinpride.

One of the organisers, Eddie McGuinness says it's all about society coming together under one rainbow:

"We are encouraging people to send in and post on social media their rainbow images."

Also Eddie wants to see, "their own Pride parades at home, the farm, the flats. No matter where you are."

"Society comes together under one rainbow today."

"Of course we're celebrating all the frontline workers this year."

So those workers will become the grand Marshals this year.
