Dublin's very own Mattress Mick is a local hero - and was the subject of an award-winning documentary around this last year.

While most people know him from the weird and wonderful adverts, music videos and being that guy with the hair on Pearse Street, Mick's also been a vocal supporter of the LGBT community in Ireland and shared a touching message today on Facebook as Pride kicks off today.

Mick shared a music video by Stolen City, as well as a message supporting trans rights in Ireland. "Have a wonderful Pride everyone! Don't ever be afraid to be who you are and have Pride in what makes you amazing :)"

"Here is an incredible music video by Stolen City that shows the difficulty many trans people face in society but with love and support you could make anyone's life that little bit easier :)"

Fair play, Mattress Mick.
