Description

Amnesty International is proud to present:

Una Mullally, Irish Times columnist and author of In The Name of Love – an oral history of the movement for marriage equality in Ireland, to deliver the 2017 Amnesty International Belfast Pride Lecture, The Road to LGBTI Equality in Ireland, followed by Q&A chaired by William Crawley.

------------------------------------------------

Una Mullally is a journalist, broadcaster, producer, author, activist and spoken word artist from Dublin.

Una is currently serving as the independent Chair of the group overseeing the Republic of Ireland's first ever National LGBT Youth Strategy, appointed by the Minister for Children and Youth Affairs, Dr Katherine Zappone.

The group is consulting and working with young people across the Republic to develop a strategy which will address the challenges faced by young members of the LGBT community.

She writes a twice-weekly column, features and interviews for The Irish Times and contributes opinion pieces to The Guardian. Her first book, In The Name Of Love, an oral history of the marriage equality movement in Ireland, was published in December 2014.

Una was active in the marriage equality referendum in the Republic of Ireland in 2015, advocating for a ‘Yes’ vote, appearing on television and radio debates, and co-founding Straight Up For Equality, an online platform for straight people to share their support for marriage equality.

A proud gay woman and feminist, she frequently appears on broadcast media in Ireland, Britain and elsewhere advocating for LGBTI rights and women’s reproductive rights. In 2015, she was named Journalist of the Year at the GALAS LGBT Awards.

In 2016, she received the Praeses Elit Award from the Dublin University Law Society, Trinity College. She helped establish The Women’s Podcast for the Irish Times and is a frequent contributor and producer. She has presented and produced television series and documentaries including Ceol ar an Imeall (TG4) and I Am Irish (RTE2). She co-founded Come Rhyme With Me, a queer spoken word event which acts as a fundraising mechanism for the LGBT resource centre Outhouse.
