Alas, the city will be without a Pride parade again this year. However, expect the Parliament Street and Capel Street pedestrianisation project to heave at its glittery seams on June 26 as everyone is sucked in to the space.

Round the corner in the Photographic Archive, the collection of the late Christopher Robson is on display as a timely reminder of the journey to this moment and these freedoms.

He captures many lives lived in the margins and shadows, over the decades, which burst into glorious technicolour during Pride.

A life lived of activism shared with his partner Bill Foley, who survives him, Robson co-founded the Dublin Gay Collective in 1982 and was on hand at a myriad of movement moments clicking the shutter to open our eyes.

Living with Pride, photographs by Christopher Robson, National Photographic Archive, Monday to Friday, 10am-4pm.
