Éigse Thuar Ceatha / Trinity Rainbow Celebration

This bilingual event in February 2016, supported by the Equality Fund, was a partnership between Oifig na Gaeilge, An Cumann Gaelach and Q Soc. It celebrated diversity of sexual orientation and gender identity in the cultures of Ireland and intersectionality amongst Trinity’s minority communities.

The evening also served a notably important purpose as the first of a series of events to inform and engage staff with the formation and development of a Trinity LGBT Staff Network. Attendees had the pleasure of listening to two keynote speakers, Senator David Norris and Irish-language author Mícheál Ó Conghaile, reflecting on their experiences. The evening was rounded off by an LGBT-inclusive céilí (or “géilí”) hosted by An Cumann Gaelach and QSoc.

For any staff with an interest in LGBT issues, who wish to learn more or become in involved In the LGBT Staff Network, please feel free to contact the Equality Officer.
