The recent marriage equality referendum in Ireland was a historic event and is what could be the first of many countries throughout Europe who pass marriage equality through a vote. CLAGS, in partnership with the Queens College Irish Studies Program, will be the first to host speaker Quentin Fottrell, an Irish member of the LGBT community to convey the background, buildup and aftermath of the vote in the historically Catholic country. Q&A and discussion will revolve around the referendum and about the future implications for marriage equality across all of Europe.
Quentin Fottrell is an Irish columnist, author, agony uncle, journalist and critic. He was the Irish correspondent for Dow Jones Newswires and The Wall Street Journal from 2003 to 2011 and is currently working as a journalist in New York. Here’s a sample of his work.
Note: All CLAGS events are free and open to the public, space permitting. An RSVP does not guarantee entrance to sold out events.
