  • Celebrating Pride at 50 - We celebrate the marking of 50 Years of Dublin Pride. Some positive progress has been made however there remains lots of opportunity for further positive progress that remains paramount especially in the areas of supportive policies at local and national level, availability and access to various health supports as well as the ongoing combating of aggression in all its forms that is still experienced by the LGBTQ+ Community.
  • The Importance of community - Support for the LGBTQ+ community by and from the wider society and how that support can evolve by proactively supporting the community in its aims, events and policies in general society, schools and in the workplace.

Ember Cullen, Workplace Operations , AIB (She/Her)

Ember is the newest member of AIB’s Pride+ Network Committee. She is transgender and bisexual, and aims to educate people on sexuality and gender, with a particular emphasis on both aspects of her own identity, which are frequently misunderstood. Ember’s gender journey took place during her time in AIB, having originally come out as nonbinary in 2023 before later coming out as transgender and transitioning in early 2024. She is uniquely positioned to speak on her experience of transitioning in the workplace, as well as the change in perceptions over time and through different identities. Ember is also an advocate for intersectionality, and firmly believes in the importance of support among different marginalised groups. She received a late ADHD diagnosis in 2022, which set her on a path to question every aspect of her life in order to find her true self.
