2018 Programme Preview: Who We Are & Who We Were

Festival 2018 is a year of celebration, marking 15 years of IDGTF and 25 years since decriminalisation of homosexuality in Ireland.

In our programme we explore the diverse lives of LGBT people today – through comedy, drama, short-plays and powerful stories from around the world.

 

Cruising, getting married, LGBT families, staying together through ups and downs… we look at online hook-ups, the perils of lesbian dating, young LGBT couples, older gay men and bisexual love both male & female.

We tell intimate personal stories and shatter sexual taboos.

 

 

 

We ask… how much has LGBT life changed from the past?  How much has it remained the same?

We celebrate and reimagine past icons – Wilde, Shakespeare, Mary Shelley, Tennessee Williams and more with humorous, moving and erotic stories.

 

We shine a spotlight on pre-decriminalisation Ireland  – from quirky and dark secrets of the Catholic Church to powerful accounts of the  homophobia of the past – and look at LGBT struggles and triumphs from places as far apart as rural Ireland, Taiwan and the USA.
