Live out Loud – celebrating LGBTI+ youth

Live Out Loud is a national campaign that celebrates LGBTI+ youth and shows how they are visible, valued and included in culture, society and sport. The campaign invites submissions from arts organisations showing how LGBTI+ youth are visible, valued and included in the arts.

The campaign is looking for positive stories that celebrate LGBTI+ young people across all sectors of society.

Submissions are invited

  • from LGBTI+ young people about how arts or cultural groups make them feel safe, supported and included
  • from arts and cultural organisations with examples of projects that show how LGBTI+ youth are visible, valued and included in the arts

The stories will be shared on the gov.ie website, across social media and at a national celebration event in 2021. The plan is to feature all sectors of society that are fulfilling the core objectives of the LGBTI+ National Youth Strategy in order to create a safe, supportive and inclusive environment for LGBTI+ young people.
