Sexuality in Ireland 1900-2020

‘Sexuality in Ireland, 1900-2020’ will explore the impact and legacy of events surrounding partition on life and society today. The event will offer up viewpoints for the varied aspects of culture and society that have existed in Ireland for over 100 years and help people understand how societal and cultural diversity can be celebrated.

‘Sexuality in Ireland, 1900-2020’ is the first in a series of events from the Nerve Centre’s Creative Centenaries project exploring the legacy of partition and the formation of Northern Ireland.

This event will be chaired by Dr Tom Hulme (Queens University Belfast), featuring a talk titled ‘Gay Life at the Time of Partition, and will feature contributions from Ulster Unionist Party minister and civil rights activist Jeffrey Dudgeon, Sinn Féin councillor and Here NI Coordinator for the LGBT Heritage Project Mary Ellen Campbell, and University College Dublin’s Páraic Kerrigan.

This event is FREE and will be held as a Zoom Webinar. A link to join the webinar will be sent via email ahead of the event.
