Community Radio Youghal launches a Ground – breaking two part Documentary on the LGBT community
“Life Behind the Rainbow” looks at the lives of people who are Lesbian,Gay, Bisexual and Transgender,living in the Cork area.
Orla Riordan, who produced and presents the show, was inspired to write it after a childhood friend came out as a lesbian.She wondered if it made her feel any different about her, it didn’t. But she realised that she knew little or nothing about the LGBT community so set about talking to different people to ask them about issues that affect their lives.
LGBT people make up approx 10% of Irelands’ population, and Orla speaks to the participants about their daily lives, marriage equality, homophobia,Cork Pride, coming out, their hopes and dreams for the future and lots more.
Life Behind the Rainbow was made in conjunction with the Broadcasting Authority of Ireland and explores issues that face the LGBT community living in Ireland today.
This documentary is first and foremost, about people. It is a funny, poignant and interesting look into the lives of people who live and work in our communities, pay their taxes, raise children and contribute to society in many ways.They just happen to be members of the LGBT community.
Life Behind the Rainbow, which as made under the Sound and Vision Scheme,will be broadcast on CRY104fm on Wednesday 25th. & Thursday 26th. of March between 6.30 & 7pm.You can listen live on www.cry104fm.com…………….
