"In rural Ireland, members of the LGBTQ community can often suffer isolation and a lack of acceptance"

Antidote Productions are looking for older members of the LGBTQ community from a farming background to feature in an exciting and heart-warming online video to coincide with Pride this year.

The short film will be directed by the award-winning Ken Wardrop who directed ‘His & Hers’, ‘Mom & Me’ and ‘Making the Grade’.

The Long Road to Pride

The Long Road to Pride will feature multiple generations of the LGBTQ community talking to each other.

This includes who “grew up before the legislation of same-sex activity, the younger generation who were galvanised by the marriage equality referendum and those who only came out later in life”.

“In rural Ireland, members of the LGBTQ community can often suffer isolation and a lack of acceptance - due to lack of resources and support.”

Bridge the gap

Séamus Waters - Antidote Productions - says “We’d love the opportunity to feature older members of the LGBTQ community from rural Ireland, especially those from a farming background who aren’t always seen or heard from.”

“This exciting project will hopefully help to bridge the gap between the older and younger members of the LGBTQ community, and result in a really lovely short film just in time for Pride!”

Further information

To get in touch or to find out more about the film, email - seamus@antidote.ie - or call Séamus on 01 4975980.
