To coincide with Dublin Pride 2018 we are launching our video Traveller Pride – Johnny’s Story. This 7 minute documentary celebrates LGBTQI Traveller identity.
Aims of our video:
Celebrate LGBTQI Traveller identity.
Challenge homophobia and transphobia and preconceptions of what it means to be LGBTQI within the Traveller community
Educate and create awareness about the diversity of LGBTQI Travellers’ experiences
Advocate for the inclusion of LGBTQI Travellers in LGBTQI organisations as well as Traveller organisations
Support LGBTQI Travellers to live authentic lives with dignity and respect
The Government, under the National Traveller and Roma Inclusion Strategy, has committed to a number of actions in relation to LGBTI Travellers and Roma. We are calling on the Dept of Justice and Equality to develop culturally appropriate supports so that LGBTI Travellers and Roma are included, accepted and protected in their own communities and wider Irish society
