Amnesty International Ireland – Virtual Pride Discussion
Dublin LGBTQ Pride has gone digital this year. While this means we can’t celebrate in person, it does mean we can invite people from all around the world to join us!
We decided to hand over our platform to LBGTI activists so they can tell their stories themselves; to hear about their triumphs, their struggles, and what matters to them. We think you’ll agree the line-up is pretty extraordinary!
Event: 7pm on Thursday June 25th. Hosted on Zoom. Link will be sent Thursday at 1pm.
LGBTI advocates have overcome immense challenges and continue to fight for a world in which all LGBTI rights are respected and upheld, where in some contexts, existence itself is an act of resistance.
LGBTI activists who stand up for an equal world face enormous risks and discrimination, varying from country to country, and all are part of the global LGBTI struggle.
That is why we will be amplifying LGBTI stories from across the globe by turning our digital platforms over to LGBTI activists, bringing three international activists together to discuss their personal stories, the challenges they still face and their hopes for the future.
The speakers at this event are:
- Kasha Jacqueline Nabagesera, a Ugandan LGBTI rights activist.
- Ivett Ördög, a Hungarian trans activist based in Budapest.
- Bulelani Mfaco, a South African asylum seeker and LGBTI and Direct Provision activist in Ireland, and spokesperson for the Movement of Asylum Seekers in Ireland.
