Event Description


Road to Equality Exhibition on display at Ballinasloe Library from January 10th – 20th.

On May 2015 the people of Ireland made history by voting Yes in the marriage referendum and Ireland became the first country in the world to introduce marriage equality by public vote. The road to equality started long before this, however, and doesn’t end here… The exhibition showcases portraits and stories from LGBT history and pay tribute to some of the people who helped bring about change on the road to equality.

The Charter of Fundamental Rights of the EU brings together in a single document the fundamental rights protected in the EU. Its Article 21 explicitly prohibits discrimination based on sexual orientation.

*This is an event by the National LGBT Federation in collaboration with Dialogue & Diversity with the kind support of Dublin City Council. It has come to Ballinasloe thanks to Galway 2020 European Capital of Culture.
