Ten Years

We celebrated the 10th anniversary of the founding of the UCC LGBT Staff Network on 12 October 2017. It was a lovely occasion to mark a significant milestone in our history. Plenty of speeches, and a lovely performance by Choral Confusion, Cork's LGBT Choir! 

We were lucky enough to record the speeches from the evening, which you can watch below. We also have a number of photos from the night which we've shared on facebook and in our gallery of the evening
