Finding our Voice, Wednesday 22nd April, 7pm online (free)

Tonight LGBT History NI mark Lesbian Visibility Week with guest speaker Marie Quiery. Marie was a founding member of LASI (Lesbian Advocacy Services Initiative) re-named HEReNI. In this online meeting Marie will focus on some historic events that gave lesbians more visibility and will give audience members a chance to reflect on how they found their voices as lesbian women.

This ONLINE ‘video conferencing’ event is arranged by Richard O’Leary of the LGBT Heritage Project and co-hosted with HEReNI. The event is open to all lesbian and bisexual women.
