ACT UP – AIDS – Activism

People living with HIV who have access to treatment can expect to live normal, healthy lives. What is less well known is the fact that effective treatment also means they can’t pass on the virus to their sexual partners.

In June we lost the powerful force for positive change that was Ann Louise Gilligan. Together with her wife, Minister Katherine Zappone TD, Ann Louise began Ireland’s journey towards marriage equality in 2004 when they took a case against the Government to have their Canadian marriage recognised by the State.

Profile
With the election of Leo Varadkar to Taoiseach, Ireland has become only the fourth country in the world to have an out gay prime minister. While the Irish mainstream media have celebrated the fact, the response from many in the LGBT+ community has been cautious at best. It’s a paradox that would have been unimaginable in 2007, when Varadkar irst entered politics
The elevation of an openly gay person to the office of Taoiseach should be seen as a positive development in its own right
It doesn’t matter what Leo Varadkar is or symbolises; it matters what he does
