Christians Support Belfast Pride Parade

We are all used to hearing about the anti-gay Christian protestors at the Belfast Pride parade. Faith and Pride is about showing you can be gay and Christian, so in conjunction with Accepting Sexuality and Changing Attitude Ireland, we are organising something different this year.

We are going to get together a group of Christians who support pride. Rather than walking in the parade, we will be standing on High Street, behind a Faith and Pride banner, holding pro-gay signs and cheering the parade on. The participants in the parade will then see our message of accepting, inclusive Christianity where love is love, regardless of  gender. The parade starts at 12 noon on Saturday 4 August. Our group will be assembling from 10.30 at St George’s Church on High Street.

If you are Christian and  would like to be involved, please contact us using this form.

  1. I think this is a great idea and am planning to be there to show Christian support for Pride. Let’s get a great turnout and show the marchers that there is an alternative (positive) Christian perspective on being gay from that which they have been subjected to from other Christian protests for the last few years.

    Its OK to be GAY!
