'The Only Gay in the Village: Reality Bites' will feature on RTE 2 tonight at 9.30pm.
The documentary is co-directed by Shauna Keogh, a filmmaker who has personally dealt with the issue of 'coming out' in rural Ireland. Keogh is currently in a relationship with former Rose of Tralee Maria Walsh, who was the Philadelphia rose with connections to Shrule on the Mayo/Galway border.
It will focus on the adaption of families and friends to a more accepting culture surrounding the LGBT community (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender). The Reality Bites show will provide us with insights into those within the Irish gay community themselves, as they explain the isolation that can be felt when you're 'the only gay in the village', as it were.
Winning Streak's host Sinead Kennedy will lead the documentary. Watch it tonight on RTE 2, or catch it on the RTE player:
