Decriminalisation Then and Now


The Hate and Hostility Research Group is delighted to announce 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 Maurice Tomlinson, Karl Hayden, 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.

More information on the event is available on the HHRG  Facebook page. to RSVP to the event please email hhrg@ul.ie
