On the occasion of the International Day against Homophobia, Transphobia and Biphobia (IDAHO) and Luxembourg Diversity Day 2018, the United Nations and Time For Equality present the screening of
THE QUEEN OF IRELAND
Monday 14 May 2018, from 7.00 pm to 9.30 pm
Ciné Utopia Luxembourg
Pandora ‘Panti’ Bliss is many things: part glamorous aunt, part Jessica Rabbit; she’s a wittily incisive performer with charisma to burn who is regarded as one of the best drag queens in the world. Created by Rory O’Neill, Panti is also an accidental activist and in her own words ‘a court jester, whose role is to say the unsayable’. Over the last few years Rory has become a figurehead for LGBT rights in Ireland and his fight for equality and against homophobia has become recognised across the world. This is a documentary film that follows Rory’s journey from the small Mayo town of Ballinrobe to striding the world stage. The film takes us behind the scenes with his alter ego Panti in the year she became the symbol of Ireland’s march towards marriage equality.
The screening will be followed by a Q/A session with guests (details will follow)
