The Troubles I’ve Seen Screening – LGBT NI Heritage Project

The Troubles I've Sseen

LGBT NI Heritage Project proudly presents a new, short documentary, The Troubles I’ve Seen, which captures the shared experiences and stories of the local LGBT Community.

Directed by Conan McIvor, this emotive and often funny doc hears from those who experienced and were involved in the beginning of the LGBT movement in Northern Ireland. They delve deeply into how their pride and fearlessness helped them overcome the shame and harassment levelled at them by elements of society.

With contributions from activists such as Jeffrey Dudgeon, Doug Sobey, Paula Keenan and more, The Troubles I’ve Seen explores the start of the Gay Liberation movement, the establishment of Cara-Friend, and the deep sense of community and support that was forged by campaigning in the face of AIDS, legal restrictions, and Northern Ireland’s anarchial political situation.”

This 30 minute screening will be followed by a 30-40 minute panel discussion about the film and the issues it raises.
