International Day Against Homophobia, Transphobia and Biphobia

On 16 May, Dr Lydia Bracken organised two events to mark International Day Against Homophobia, Transphobia and Biphobia 2019 in the A&L Goodbody Appellate Moot Court Room. In the morning, Paula Fagan, CEO of LGBT Ireland, delivered LGBT+ Awareness Training to staff from across the University. The purpose of the training was to enhance participants’ understanding of the terminology and issues facing the LGBT+ community and develop their capacity to support LGBT+ staff and students in an affirmative way. A seminar on ‘LGBT+ Justice and Safety’ subsequently took place in the afternoon. Paula Fagan, Dr Lydia Bracken, Alena Kiel (AHSS PhD Candidate and UL Student Council LGBTQIA+ representative) and Cillian Flynn (Operations Manager with GOSHH - Gender Orientation Sexual Health HIV) spoke at the seminar on issues relating to the theme of ‘Justice and Safety’.
