Once again this year, IDAHOT (International Day Against Homophobia, Transphobia and Biphobia) will be marked at the 10.15am service in St. Anne’s Church, Shandon in Cork on Sunday next (12th May). The Service will be led by the Rector, the Reverend Sarah Marry, and all are welcome to attend.
Choral Con Fusion Choir from Cork will be present to sing.
The theme this year is ‘Allies for Inclusion’ and is borrowed from this year’s Cork City LGBTI+ Awareness Week which will be launched on Monday 13th May at Cork City Hall and run until 19th May.
The speaker at the Service, Sara-Jane Cromwell, will tell something of her story reflecting on what it has been like for her with and without allies. Sara-Jane was diagnosed with Gender Dysphoria and completed gender reassignment in 2015. She is the co-founder and Chair of TENI (Transgender Equality Network Ireland), CEO of GIDI (Gender Identity Disorder Ireland) and author of ‘Becoming Myself’ and ‘Wrong Body, Wrong Life’.
