Lady Birds Manifesto

For the last two years, The LadyBirds, a bi-weekly group for young LBT women and non-binary people, have been doing all they can to raise awareness around women’s sexuality and sexual health. Emily O’Connell details their journey.

The LadyBirds mean business. One of BeLonG To’s youth groups, over the last while they have taken part in training courses with Dublin Lesbian Line, released a manifesto of what they want to achieve and just last month they launched a video campaign to highlight the stigma that surrounds the female reproductive system and the lack of education that young people receive when it comes to women’s bodies.

About GCN

In this special edition, our community's younger members take over for the annual Youth Issue. Our guest editor Emily profiles a group of young activists leading the charge for a new Ireland. We celebrate 15 years of the awesome BeLonG To, the national organisation supporting LGBTI+ youth while one of their subgroups, The LadyBirds, tackle the lack of awareness around women's sexuality and sexual health. A young asylum seeker in Direct Provision tells us of his struggles with homophobia while LGBT+ people in rural areas speak about the effects of isolation and how youth groups helped them find confidence. We top things off with a preview of the upcoming Science Of The Kiss exhibition, part of GCN's takeover of the Science Gallery. This is a good one!
