4:00pm – 6:00pm. Monday 3 June
As part of TRANS-FUSION Festival Ireland, EPIC is delighted to welcome TENI (Transgender Equality Network Ireland) chair Sara R. Phillips to host this fascinating talk charting the history of the Irish Transgender diaspora.
In recent years, Transgender people have stepped out of the shadows and and are beginning to participate fully in Irish society. But did you know that there have been Transgender individuals in Ireland for over 250 years? While many remained on the Emerald Isle, some individuals felt they had to emigrate in order to live their true identity. In conjunction with EPIC, The TRANS-FUSION Festival, the Irish Trans Archive and TENI, Sara R Phillips will provide a fascinating look into the lives of many of these individuals over the past 250 years, while also charting the journey of Trans rights in Ireland over the past 30 years.
