15th Nov Event Reflection Jonathan O'Carroll (Campaign & Events)

Hey Everyone,

On the Friday the 13th November, Pride and Anthropology Soc. set up a screening of Paris is Burning via teams and it was such a pleasant success. While only 12 people attended overall, the screening went off without a hitch, gracing us with an insight in the life of 1987 New York's most iconic ballroom queens. From the caring, reigning Pepper Lebeija of House of Lebeija, hardworking dreamer Angie Xtravaganza of House of Xtravaganza, dance icon Willie Ninja of House of Ninja, to tea-spilling queen Dorian Corey, we saw the lives of these house mothers and their children as they fought to survive cut-throat New York and made a name for themselves in a world who wanted to ignore them. From reading and shading, voguing and realness, to house mothers and chosen families, the stories shared to us left everyone feeling inspired. Following the movie, discussions of the movie led to a few participants trying to give realness in categories like "Tipperary Farmer," "80s Style" and "Anthropology Student." With the night coming to a close, members eagerly suggested vogue dancing lessons and even a Maynooth ballroom scene (if COVID lets up). Lets us know what you think! Should we have a ballroom and, like Paris Durpee, should it be called Antoinette is Burning or Ahlam is Burning? Hope ye have an amazing weekend and hope to see on our Monday Coffee Mornings (10am-12pm) and our Thursday Hangouts (6-9:30pm).

Stay Safe <3!!

About Pride Society



Welcome to Maynooth Pride Society! Pride is Maynooth University's LGBTQI+ society for anyone who identifies as LGBTQI+, our allies, and advocates. Everyone is more than welcome to join as long as you are open-minded and are respectful of all identities and orientations.

We are a social society who strive to create a safe space for our members where they can meet new friends, become an activist, go on some great nights out, learn about LGBTQI+ issues, and yourselves, or just watch movies with some free pizza.

We are there to help, support, and guide you through college. We will try our utmost best to answer any questions relating to the LGBTQI+ Community that you may have. It is very important to us that you are included, and feel loved and supported.

It is also important to us that you feel safe! All of our events, and social media are safe spaces; so be respectful and confidential of all opinions, experiences, identities, and orientations.
