LGBT representation in Irish Media with Sissy That Pod

This week, Holly and Hilary are joined by Cian Sullivan and James O’Hagan of Sissy That Pod to break down LGBT representation in Irish media. 


A message from Hilary and Holly:

Hey peeps, we’re so excited to release this episode with Sissy that Pod! Previously, this was a topic that we didn't know much about before talking to the guys and doing our research. Of course we are still learning about this area and want to learn more. We hope this contributes to making LGBT topics more accessible because this is definitely not explored enough. We are excited to be involved and don't forget to keep up with new research in the future:

We focused a lot on gay representation in this episode we just wanted to acknowledge that there is a real lack of trans representation in Irish media. We hope you enjoy learning along with us, please get in touch if you have anything to contribute. Check out some further reading and resources below:
