I’m currently working on an oral history of the movement for marriage equality in Ireland, from the early international conversations, legal and political battles, to Katherine Zappone and Ann Louise Gilligan’s case taken to have their Canadian marriage recognised in Ireland, the mobilisation of the LGBT community onto Irish streets, the organisations such as GLEN, the NLGF, Marriage Equality, LGBT Noise and more, the introduction of Civil Partnership in Ireland, the media’s role, the opposition to the movement, the role of politicians, the Catholic Church, people’s personal stories, key moments over the past seven years, the current situation and beyond.

This is not an academic study, but an oral history, an independent journalistic project that when completed will be published online and will made freely available for anyone to use; organisations, media, people undertaking research in the area etc.

Tonight, as part of LGBT History Month, I’ll be talking about the project so far at this event in the National Library. It’s free to attend and there will be loads of great speakers talking about the history of the marriage equality movement.
