On 23 March 2019, we were delighted to bring OUTing the Past: The Festival of LGBT History to Dublin for the first time.

Participants enjoyed a free day of queer history, art and discussion with dynamic speakers including Panti Bliss, Joe Caslin, Stephen Moloney and Katherine O'Donnell. Thought-provoking breakout sessions explored themes including student activism, the 1916 Easter Rising and the Gallery’s LGBTQ+ artworks. To close the day in style, the historic Shaw Room provided the backdrop for a performance by Glória, Dublin's Lesbian and Gay Choir.

The video below captures some of the magic of the day!
