It's Pride day and the capital city is the place to be for those out marching and celebrating.

The parade will kick off at 1pm from the Garden of Remembrance and head towards O'Connell Street, Eden Quay and Liberty Hall. Marchers will then cross the Liffey with the parade culminating in an event on Merrion Square.

This year the theme is 'Rainbow Revolution' which celebrates the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall uprising in New York which began the international Pride movement.

Over 150 organisations will march in the parade, including the GAA officially for the very first time. Members of An Garda Síochána will march in their uniform for the first time also.

To mark the occasion several historic landmarks will be lit up including the GPO.

There's also the option of the Mother Pride Block Party, which takes place in the National Museum of Ireland, Collins Barracks.

For those travelling in to the city there will be road closures and disruption.

According to the AA there will be a number of road closures today including Parnell Sq East and North, Frederick St North and Cavendish Row will close from 9am to 4pm. Merrion Sq East and South, Fitzwilliam St Lower, Mount St Upper and Mount St Crescent will close from 6am to 10pm.
