The Queen of Ireland
The Queen of Ireland is a social justice documentary with a difference.
Panti Bliss (and her alter ego Rory O’Neill) was catapulted into the centre of political turmoil in the lead up to Ireland's Marriage Equality Referendum in 2014, when an interview with her on the homophobic behaviour of the mainstream media was broadcast and all the fury of Ireland's conservative commentators descended. Undaunted, Panti became a rallying figure in the campaign for marriage equality in the traditionally conservative country.
