The United Nations and Time For Equality, with the support of the Embassy of Ireland in Luxembourg, the Diversity Charter (www.chartediversite.lu) and Rosa Lëtzebuerg, have announced that they are organising the Ciné-ONU screening of "The Queen of Ireland" on Monday 14 May 2018 at 19:00 at Ciné Utopia in Luxembourg-Limpertsberg.
The Queen of Ireland, a documentary film directed by Conor Horgan, focuses on Rory O’Neill, better known as Panti, in the lead up to the historic referendum on marriage equality in Ireland in May 2015. 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 the audience behind the scenes with his alter ego Panti in the year she became the symbol of Ireland’s march towards marriage equality.
The event will be opened by the Irish Ambassador in Luxembourg. The film screening will be followed by a Q/A session.
Entrance is free, registration required. Tickets can be booked online at https://bit.ly/2JFiEIV
