What does it mean to be lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender or a questioning woman in Ireland today? From a place of secrecy and shame, LGBTQ women are proudly taking their place in Irish society and sharing their stories. But their stories are many and varied.

They range from the humorous to the tragic, covering love, denial, heartbreak, joy, fear, happiness, religion, rejection and acceptance. Running Amach in Ireland is a collection of 34 true stories gathered from the membership of Running Amach, a social networking group for LGBTQ women in Ireland. These many inspiring, touching and uplifting stories describe the experience of ‘coming out’, of falling in love and of finding yourself.

Touching on many different aspects of what it means to be LGBTQ in Ireland today, and coming in the aftermath of the historic Marriage Equality Referendum, these stories shine a light on a corner of Irish society that has for too long been ignored. Through their individual stories, these women illustrate the common humanity that binds us together, and they invite us to share in all aspects of LGBTQ life in Ireland today.
