Ireland’s first course to examine the modern history of the Irish LGBT+ community is being offered by the School of History’s Dr Diarmuid Scully in UCC’s Adult and Continuing Education (ACE) Programme, Spring 2020.
‘From Shame to Pride?' A Short Introduction to LGBT+ Irish History (1970s-2020) is a six-week course exploring the experience of LGBT+ people in Ireland since New York’s 1969 Stonewall Riots, which inspired the LGBT+ rights movement internationally. This course is based on the first ever degree-level modern Irish LGBT+ History module taught in an Irish university – Diarmuid’s HI 2105 Case Study: LGBT Identities in Modern Ireland: Sources, Contexts, Interpretations. Diarmuid introduced this Second Year History course in 2018 to mark the 25th anniversary of the decriminalisation of homosexuality.
