Queen of Ireland Film Screening

The Embassy of Ireland invites you to a screening of ‘The Queen of Ireland’ in Kinoteka at 18.30 on Thursday 7 June.

The Queen of Ireland’ is an award-winning documentary film about the life and work of Panti Bliss, Ireland’s best-known drag queen and LGBTI activist. Created by Rory O’Neill, Panti’s fight for equality and against homophobia has become recognised across the world. In 2015, Panti became a symbol of Ireland’s path to marriage equality. ‘The Queen of Ireland’ follows Rory’s journey from a small rural town to the world stage as Panti Bliss.

The film shows Ireland’s path to equality, and the fight against homophobia, through Panti’s personal experience.
