GCN’s festival of LGBTQ+ creativity, In and Out is back with a special discussion with the athlete and positive mental health advocate Hannah Tyrrell! Sporting Pride has teamed up with GOSHH, the North Tipperary Development Company (NTDC), and GCN for this special event.

The event will be presented by 2fm radio host and documentary maker Stephen Byrne, another positive mental health advocate in his own right. Taking place on Tuesday, September 28th at 7 pm, this event promises to open up dialogue on the mental wellbeing of our community with a focus on those who may feel more isolated.

Joanne from the NTDC states that:

“There have been some very positive changes in attitudes and inclusion when it comes to representation of LGBTI+ in our sporting communities. However, we still have a long way to go when it comes to rural Ireland representation. North Tipperary Development Company is delighted to collaborate with such services through our Social Inclusion and Community Activation Programme (SICAP) to spark conversations… it is important that the LGBTI+ community know that there is active support and inclusion happening across both Tipperary and rural Ireland”.
