The UCC LGBT Staff Network, in conjunction with our Tyndall National Institute branch, were proud to present a very special event for UCC Equality Week 2018:

“How to be a good LGBT Ally: at home, at work and in everyday life”.

The event, which was open to all members of the UCC community and the wider public, featured a facilitated discussion with a distinguished panel of guest speakers about how to be a better parent, co-worker, friend & all-round ally to LGBT people. The panel will be chaired by Pádraig Rice of the Cork City LGBT Inter-Agency Group, who won the GALA Award for Ally of the Year in 2017.
