Description

The story of the LGBT community in Northern Ireland over the last 100 years.

So much of this history is hidden, often to be found in police records, hospital records and some diaries. It is also very much a living history as Northern Irish society has come to acceptance, resulting in a Northern Ireland couple being the first civil partnership in the UK.
