Launch of Amach agus Isteach Intergenerational Creative Writing Anthology

On Wednesday 10th of December 2014 AMACH! LGBT Galway Ltd and shOUT! LGBT Youth were delighted to launch the booklet Amach agus Isteach. This took place in Charlie Byrnes Book store.  Along with family and friends the participants of the project read some of their pieces from the booklet. This was preceded early in the day with an interview on Galway Bay FM (link below)

The project brought together both younger and older LGBT people who took part in the eight week project. With the help of local writers Sarah Clancy and Elaine Feeney the participants discused the process of creative writing. Resulting in the booklet. This booklet is a mixture of poetry and short stories. Although the writing is partly fictional it gives an insight of what it is like growing up LGBT in Ireland.
