Patrick's Parade Boasts Trans Grand Marshall

17/03/2022

Rebecca Tallon de Havilland, who is considered to be one of the first people from the Republic of Ireland to have had gender affirmation surgery in the country, is to be grand marshall  of the Pride contingent in the Annual Dublin Saint Patrick Day’s Parade.  So reports Gay Community News in Ireland.  Speaking on the theme of the upcoming event, Dublin Pride stated: “This year, we celebrate our national day under the shadow of the greatest affront to fundamental human rights Europe has seen in 75 years.  As thousands of Ukrainians prepare to seek refuge in Ireland, we want to send a clear message to them all – ‘We are an inclusive and kind people, and you are welcome here.’”   The parade is televised by the national broadcasting network in the Republic, RTE.
