Pride Vibes: LGBTQ+ radio station launches this weekend

Words: Ellen Kenny

As Dublin Pride takes to the streets this weekend, Ireland’s first radio station for the queer community, will take to the airwaves today. 

The station, available at PrideVibes.ie, includes a programme of music, conversations and documentaries to educate and entertain listeners.

Pride Vibes is a collaboration between leading LGBTQIA+ organisations to provide a space for the community to share stories and enjoy the sound of pride.

The station has partnered with BeLonG To, Gay Community News and Dublin Pride as well as some of Ireland’s most popular LGBTQ+ presenters.

With their collaborators, Pride Vibes will share queer news, music, history and comedy around the clock to please your ears this Pride month.

Award-winning Pride Vibes presenter Thomas Crosse said, “Now more than ever it’s important for us to have a voice , to shout who we are and to march for those who can’t.”

“Pride Vibes has been fantastic for all of us in the LGBTQIA+ community and our allies with open, honest conversations as well as playing the best music as we get ready to march this Saturday on the streets of Dublin.”

Fellow presenter and RTÉ regular Kate Brennan-Harding also commented, “Pride is an important time to gather and find our colourful tribe, to unite in solidarity and to show people like us that we are living bright, vivid and powerful lives.”

“[Pride Vibes] has been something that has given me so much comfort and empowerment over my 23 years attending Pride.”
