It was “shameful” that almost a decade into the 21st century Irish citizens were still fearful about being marginalised at work because of their sexuality, and of being harassed, bullied or even violently attacked because of who they were.
A recent survey done by the National Gay and Lesbian Federation reported that the that the issues of most concern to the Irish gay and lesbian community are;
1. Equal rights at work,
2. Personal security,
3. Marriage equality,
4. Support for young LGBT people and,
5. Supports for people coming out.
I would not be surprised to find that the same concerns are relevant in the US. We have come so fare yet not anywhere fare enough!
