LGBTQ+ Peer Support Group

As part of Spirasi's LGBTQ+ Inclusion Project, the LGBTQ+ Peer Support Group were eager to move from the online meetings and finally have an in-person session.

Spirasi is delighted to have organised an in-person physical session for the LGBTQ+ survivors that are part of the LGBTQ+ Peer Support Group, making it the first in-person session for the group not only in 2022 but since the COVID-19 pandemic began, having forced us to migrate online.


A Day out in Dublin City

The day began with the LGBTQ+ Peer Support Group making the journey from various parts of the country to meet on O'Connell Street. Once we were all together, we made our way to Outhouse, a prominent spot in Dublin that many queer folks call a safe space. It was important for our survivors to realise this place exists and can go here for a coffee or a chat with other LGBTQ+ people. We all enjoyed a hot beverage with a sandwich or two to prepare us for the rest of the day.


We then made our way down Capel Street towards Parliament Street, stopping off and getting some photos outside the well-established Panti Bar and Street 66 before detouring Trinity College.



After the many photo opportunities, we made our way to Costa Café on Dawson Street, where we finished our day with more coffee and chats that none of us will forget.



The LGBTQ+ Peer Support Group thoroughly enjoyed their day out in Dublin and are eager to meet again in other cities across Ireland. A donation today will support this work.
