Sport Ireland and Sporting Pride have launched the #LetsGetVisible campaign as part of Dublin Pride Health and Wellbeing Week taking place this week from 14th to 20th June 2021. The campaign aims to recognise and acknowledge the importance of visibility and representation amongst the LGBTQI+ community. It gives the sport sector the opportunity to show our support for the LGBTQI+ community and to promote sport as a welcoming and inclusive space for the community.
Canoeing Ireland are really excited and proud to support the campaign and we are asking all our clubs and members to do the same. To get involved in the campaign all you need to do is go to Sporting Pride’s website (https://www.sportingpride.ie/campaign/lets-get-visible ) and download a profile picture overlay, which you can add to your profile picture from Monday 14th June 2021. We are also asking people to post their messages of support for the campaign using #LetsGetVisible – you can get creative and post a picture with a pride flag, wearing your most colourful clothing, or you can use any of the graphics available to download on the Sporting Pride website.
