EPIC The Irish Emigration Museum

Out in the World: Ireland's LGBTQ+ Diaspora

Offline

Across the generations, Irish LGBTQ+ people have emigrated to find opportunities to live and love openly. Yet this journey was rarely a simple transition from an oppressive island to a liberal wider world. Unfortunately, Irish LGBTQ+ emigrants often faced the same prejudice abroad which they had hoped to leave behind. Home, once a place of shame and silence, could also become a welcoming site of return. This exhibition highlights twelve stories from the vast yet largely untold history of Ireland’s LGBTQ+ diaspora, across six themes – exclusion, community, love, defiance, solidarity, and return. The exhibition also features incredible artwork by award-winning Irish designer and multi-disciplinary artist Richard Malone.
