Dublin Bus Invites You to Party with Panti at Pride

Published on Thursday, June 20, 2019

The Queen of Ireland herself will make a royally colourful appearance this Pride as she hosts a Dublin Bus Pride party as part of the Pride Parade 2019, which is taking place on Saturday 29 June. 

Boarding the proudest bus of the Parade, Panti Bliss will wave to her loyal subjects along the route from the open top bus while making her majestic moves to the banging tunes provided by the resident on-board DJ and…. You are invited! 

Whether you’ve been loud and proud since Gloria Gaynor first belted out ‘I Will Survive’ or maybe you’re more of a ‘Born This Way’ Gaga fan, you’ll be bopping regally through the streets of the capital in a boldly decorated bus. To be in with a chance of winning tickets for you and three friends on the most colourful bus in town, visit Dublin Bus on Twitter  or Dublin Bus Facebook page and tag the three people you want to bring with you! 

As part of its support for Dublin Pride, Dublin Bus also provides the rainbow bus for the organiser’s accessibility initiative to ensure those with mobility issues can participate in the parade. Eagle-eyed Dubliners should also keep an eye out for the two ‘proudest buses’ wrapped in the Pride colours currently in service across Dublin. 

Last year, Dublin Bus celebrated Pride by giving Irish dads a platform to show their love and support for their LGBTQ+ children through its ‘Proud Dads’ campaign. The powerful video that captured the beautiful day touched the hearts of 7.5 million people around the world.  

Employing over 3,500 people, Dublin Bus is a pioneering company in the development of policies and support initiatives around inclusivity and diversity for its employees and customers. It was one of the first companies in Ireland to extend its paternity policy to anyone whose partner gives birth to or adopts a child. It launched its Workplace Gender Transition Policy and Guidelines in 2017 to help create a welcoming and supportive environment for transitioning employees which TENI described as “one of the most progressive policies on transgender inclusion in Ireland.”
