Pride Bingo - back by demand

More evenings of 'number calling' organised for July 5 and 19

FOLLOWING THE success of the Bingo night in Nova to raise funds for the 2017 Galway Community Pride festival, two further evenings of “number calling” are being organised for July 5 and 19.

As regards other events, the Pride committee is looking for X Factor wannabees for Pride Idol with heats taking place on July 20 and 27 with the finals on August 3. The winner will receive a cash prize and a spot on the main stage at the Saturday Street Party! July 30 will see teams take to the streets to battle it out in the Gaymazing Race - a treasure hunt around Galway city with a difference!

All money raised is going back into the community with the organisation of the different events during Pride itself, which takes place form August 7 to 13. Monday sees the launch with a flag raising and parties in the Róisín Dubh and Nova, along with entertainment from The Divas. Tuesday will be an educational night and Wednesday will see discussions on LGBT+ mental health and hold a remembrance service for lost loved ones.

Thursday will celebrate the diversity of the community with a BTQIA+ night followed by Cheesy Pop Tunes in the Róisín Dubh. Friday sees a comedy night in The Loft, followed by DJ Inertia. Saturday will see the Pride parade, culminating in a street party in the West End sponsored and supported by Nova. There will also be events on the Sunday. See
