In 2015 the Irish people voted in favour of Marriage Equality for same-sex couples, and the Irish government enacted the Gender Recognition Act - two important steps towards equality and rights for LGBT people in Ireland. These developments did not happen in a vacuum, but rather built on decades of activism by LGBT community organisations and individuals.

Taking readers on a journey through the development of Cork's lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender communities 1970s-1990s, this book redresses their invisibility and provides a valuable insight into the development of a vibrant and active LGBT community. Orla Egan has been actively involved in the Cork LGBT community since the 1980s. She has published and presented papers on Cork LGBT history in various forums.

With over 20 years experience working in the education, equality, community development and social inclusion arenas, she worked as Director of the Higher Education Equality Unit, as Manager of Cherry Orchard Community Training Centre and was Training and Development Officer with BeLonG To LGBT Youth Service. She is currently completing a PhD in Digital Arts and Humanities in University College Cork, where she works as a part-time tutor/lecturer in Women's Studies, Applied Social Studies and Digital Arts and Humanities. She is the proud parent of Jacob, and the partner of Cork independent filmmaker Carol O’Keeffe.
