HHRG: 25th Anniversary of Decriminalisation in Ireland

HHRG: 25th Anniversary of Decriminalisation in Ireland

The Hate and Hostility Research Group is delighted to invite you to the latest in its ‘Academic Meets Activist’ series of events, which marks the 25th Anniversary of Decriminalisation in Ireland, also looking at the struggle for decriminalisation in Jamaica. 
 
The evening will consist of a panel discussion with Senator David Norris, Maurice Tomlinson, Vanessa Lacey, and Dr Geraldine Moane. The panel will discuss the impact of the so-called ‘anti-sodomy’ legislation on the LGBT community in Ireland, as well as contemporary issues facing the community in Ireland today. We are privileged to have Maurice Tomlinson join the panel, who will speak about his own campaign for decriminalisation in Jamaica, where he is both counsel and claimant in a case currently pending before the Jamaican Supreme Court.
 
29th November, 7pm, Millstream Common Room.
