Pride Week culminates in Ireland with the Dublin march, which this year surely promises to be the biggest ever. It has become a wonderfully boisterous, colourful, celebratory occasion, into which the citizenry of the capital and visitors alike have been throwing themselves with increasing abandon.
That mood is likely to be intensified with the current good weather, which will likely inspire a greater display of scanty clothing and skin than normal. Then, again, maybe not! We will have to wait until the weekend to see for sure.
To get into the mood, we wanted to mark the occasion by highlighting some of the key figures in gay lore – beginning today with a deliberately idiosyncratic selection of 10 Lesbians Who Made A Difference, including a number of prominent Irish women. Some of those selected seem to have liked men too – well, on occasion at least.
