Jump on Board & Show Your Pride on the Proudest Bus of Dublin Pride

Published on Friday, June 22, 2018

Dublin LGBTQ Pride isn’t just a party, it’s a place to show pride for the LGBTQ community and Dublin Bus is calling on its customers and their families and friends to help the company and its employees celebrate for their annual Pride campaign. 

They are offering customers a chance of winning a spot on the proudest and most colourful bus in the Dublin Pride Parade 2018, a Dublin Bus wrapped in the Pride colours, which will be at the top of the parade on Saturday 30 June. To be in with a chance of winning four spaces on the bus for you and your pals visit the Dublin Bus Facebook or Twitter pages (@dublinbusnews) and tag three people you want to bring with you; it’s as simple as that!

We all know our families and friends love us unconditionally, supporting us through thick and thin, whether it’s a quiet word, a wink or an arm around the shoulder. This year Dublin Bus wants to celebrate these proud families and friends across Dublin and their LGBTQ siblings, parents, partners and pals by giving them a special experience at the top of the Dublin Pride Parade. The parade is the highlight of the Dublin Pride Festival which is expected to feature an estimated 30,000 proud Dubliners taking part.

The Dublin Pride Parade will be led by Grand Marshal Sara Phillips, Chair of Transgender Equality Network Ireland (TENI), Taoiseach Leo Varadkar and Lord Mayor Mícheál MacDonncha. In 2017 Dublin Bus devised its comprehensive Workplace Gender Transition Policy and Guidelines in consultation with TENI. The policy includes recommendations for employees, managers and the Human Resources Department on how to provide a welcoming and supportive environment for employees transitioning. Sara described the policy as “one of the most progressive policies on transgender inclusion in the workplace.”Eagle-eyed Dubliners should keep an eye out for two buses Dublin Bus has proudly wrapped in the Pride colours this year which took to the streets of the Capital last weekend. 

As one of the largest employers in the country with over 3,500 employees and the largest transport company in Ireland, Dublin Bus is considered to be one of the most progressive for inclusivity and supporting diversity among its workforce and was previously named a GLEN (Gay & Lesbian Equality Network) Diversity Champion. 2014 saw it undertake an on-board and in depot poster campaign promoting mutual respect and a positive work environment for all employees and in the same year the company also extended its paternity policy to all employees whose partner gives birth to or adopts a child.
