Queen of Ireland, UN Cinema screening, London, 2018

Following Rory’s journey from the small Mayo town of Ballinrobe to striding the world stage as an icon for LGBT rights, 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. Check out the Facebook event here.
