Irish Village goes "Gay for a Day"

(From ABC News)
"The tiny coastal village of Easkey, County Sligo has "gone gay" today in hosting what is thought to be the smallest gay pride event in the world.

The local Family Resource Center of Easkey, population 250, is urging residents to "go gay" in an act of support of the local LGBT community.

The village, which is best known as a surfing and fishing town and has just two shops, two pubs, two butchers and a post office, will host a reception in its Family Resource Center followed by a shoreside barbecue.

Organizers expect around 80 people from the community to attend, all of whom will wear pins proudly stating: "gay for a day."

The event is part of the Northwest LGBT Pride festival. In its fourth year, the festival hosts a series of events across Counties Sligo and Leitrim in acts of solidarity with rural Ireland's gay community."
