Thousands have gathered in Dublin city for the first Pride Parade since the same-sex marriage referendum - and organisers are calling it the biggest ever.
The event is the centrepiece of the ten-day Pride festival in the city.
The parade started at the Garden of Remembrance, Parnell Square at 1.30pm sharp, and will finish up at Merrion Square, where a Pride Village has been open since midday. A carnival will continue there through the evening.
Chair of Dublin LGBTQ Pride Jason Flynn is feeling extremely proud:
The Merrion Square event will feature speeches from the likes of the Grand Marshal of the Parade Brian Sheehan, Pride Chairperson Jason Flynn, and Panti.
These people spoke to Newstalk reporter Róisín Treacy about their favourite part of Pride:

It also says each individual state must recognise the marriages offered by other states - meaning gay couples who have already married in one state now have national recognition for that marriage.
President Obama says the court ruling has "made the union a little more perfect" - despite differences:
