Pride, and after June 30, 2018

Posted by WorldbyStorm in Uncategorized.

It is of course Pride today, the IT has a very moving piece by Oliver Callan on his growing up in Monaghan in the 80s and 90s as a young gay man and how the society constrained him. He came out in his very early 30s. Another very moving piece is on the family of Declan Flynn, the young Irish gay man murdered in Fairview Park in 1982.

A sign of how far matters have improved, there’s another piece on a Defence Forces Sergeant and his male partner and how senior military are participating in today’s events.

Meanwhile, a friend of the CLR notes that a relative contacted them about how FF were ‘organising the Pride parade’. As was put to me the relative probably misread FF’s wish to ensure a strong contingent at the parade. And there is this, a video from FF to mark the 25th anniversary of the decriminalisation of homosexuality in Ireland. As was noted the audio clip from the Dáil debate is an interesting one, politically. And yet, what a time now when everyone is on the same page.
