Limerick Comhairle na nÓg will formally launch three projects that raise awareness of gender identity, equality and the experiences of the LGBTQIA+ community at Ormston House, Patrick St, Limerick on Friday, October 7th at 7pm.
Led by young people with Limerick Comhairle na nÓg, the three projects include:

- A documentary that celebrates the Limerick LGTBQIA+ community
- Details of two murals that celebrate gender equality and the voice of women. The murals are located in Moylish Road, Ballynanty and Island Road, King’s Island respectively.
- A discussion about an interactive workshop for young people and teachers on the theme of gender identity and understanding.
