I’m Olly and I’m delighted to join Galway Community Pride committee for 2023. I am from the Isle of Man but have lived in Ireland for 20 years, the last 6 of those in Galway. I have a background in marketing, events and project management. I also served as a committee member for Cork Pride in 2014 & 2015. Looking forward to a fantastic Galway Community Pride in 2023

What does Pride mean to you?
Pride is a place for our community to come together and to express themselves. It’s about uniting with other LGBT+ people in our community and celebrating each other. But most importantly it’s a celebration of our equality and a protest for our rights. #PROUD
