A self-described collective of “black queers” based in Ireland raised close to €30,000 for workshops and speaking engagements, then they disappeared.
According to reporting by The Burkean, several Irish liberal “allies” showered money on the group in question, Black Pride Ireland (BPI), at the height of the George Floyd protests in America last year.
After raising the cash, ostensibly to finance workshops, speaking tours and travel to protests, the group became inactive. BPI’s homepage has been mostly offline since June of last year. The group’s Instagram has occasionally updated with appeals for more money, while their Facebook account hasn’t said anything since September 2020.
