To mark the 70th Anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and the Free & Equal Campaign, The United Nations and The Embassy of Ireland present 'The Queen of Ireland' ahead of Europride Stockholm.
Pandora ‘Panti’ Bliss is a wittily incisive performer with charisma to burn who is regarded as one of the best drag queens in the world. Created by Rory O’Neill, Panti is also an accidental activist and in her own words ‘a court jester, whose role is to say the unsayable’. Over the last few years Rory has become a figurehead for LGBT rights in Ireland and his fight for equality and against homophobia has become recognised across the world. This is a documentary film that follows Rory’s journey from the small Mayo town of Ballinrobe to striding the world stage. The film takes us behind the scenes with his drag queen alter ego Panti in the year she became the symbol of Ireland’s march towards marriage equality.
The film will be introduced by Ambassador Dympna Hayes from the Embassy of Ireland. The screening is followed by a discussion featuring the star of the film: Rory O'Neill.
