I'm Here, I'm Home, I'm Happy FILM

I'm Here, I'm Home, I'm Happy is a Cork LGBT Archive documentary Director: Orla Egan

I’m Here, I’m Home, I’m Happy uses extracts from oral history interviews and items from the Cork LGBT Archive, to explore the lives of some LGBT people in Cork in the 1970s and 1980s. It examines what happens when you find community, when you find your tribe - how the Cork LGBT community provided a sense of connection, belonging, mutual support and fun to LGBT people at a time of criminalisation, prejudice and discrimination. The participants talk about the community spaces, parties, pubs, clubs and political activism.

I'm Here, I'm Home, I'm Happy has been screened in the Cork City Library, Project Arts Centre in Dublin, Fastnet Film Festival in Schull, West Cork, in University College Cork, in Skibbereen Family Community Resource Centre and as part of the GAZE film festival programme at Cork Pride.

DVDs of the film have been produced and are being sold as a fundraiser for the Cork LGBT Archive. Cost €10 & Post and Packaging. To order a copy please contact info@corklgbtarchive.com
