Comments

Recent legal reforms, President Robinson's reception for lesbian and gay leaders, and the rows over the St Paddy's Day Parade in NYC, have focused world attention on a re-definition of Irishness and sparked unprecedented discussion of sexuality among the Irish public. Here a range of voices of those closely involved in the process of change engage with the shifts in Irish society and politics. Each writer reflects on their work in the lesbian and gay community and envisions what the future holds for lesbian and gay citizens in the Republic. Contributors include Senator David Norris, Mary Dorcey, Emma Donoghue, Louise Walsh, Father Bernard Lynch, Cherry Smyth, Eibhear Walsh, Jonie Crone, Kieran Rose and Anne Maguire.
