Many thanks to my good friend Claire Hallam, who used to blog under the title A unique cipher of anxiety and friendship for sending a link to this video and background information. Here it is for those who want to know more. And this article in the Irish Times.
As background and explanation, this speech, given at the Abbey Theatre in Dublin by Panti, aka Rory O'Neill, an actor and gay activist, seems at first to have nothing to do with trans issues. Some of us are gay or bi, but the issue of how we feel about ourselves, and how we worry about what others will think is every bit the same even if we are straight.
Remove homophobic and replace it with transphobic.
What a performance... Shame it needs to be said...ReplyDelete
