Film Screening for Culture Night 2022
I'm Here, I'm Home, I'm Happy
To celebrate Culture Night 2022, the UCC LGBT+ Staff Network will be screening the short film "I'm Here, I'm Home, I'm Happy".
I’m Here, I’m Home, I’m Happy is the new film from the Cork LGBT Archive. The film uses extracts from oral history interviews and items from the Cork LGBT Archive to explore the lives of some LGBT people in Cork in the 1970s and 1980s. It explores how the Cork LGBT community provided a sense of connection, belonging, mutual support and fun to LGBT people at a time of criminalisation, prejudice and discrimination. The participants talk about the community spaces, parties, pubs, clubs and political activism. "It was fun, Cork in the 1980s was so much fun."
Date: Friday 23rd September 2022
Venue: Aine Hyland Room G12, Ground Floor, THe Hub
Details: The 20-minute screening will be followed by a Q&A session with the film maker Orla Egan, and a chance to chat over tea/coffee and cakes.
