The Queen of Ireland

The Queen of Ireland 

Official Selection: Seattle Film Festival, Sydney Film Festival. (theatrically released by Universal in UK and Ireland and by Transmission in Australia/NZ)

A documentary that follows drag queen Panti Bliss. Created by Rory O'Neill, Panti is also an accidental activist and in her own words 'a court jester, whose role is to say the un-sayable'. In recent years, Rory has become a figurehead for LGBT rights in Ireland and since the 2014 scandal around Pantigate, his fight for equality and against homophobia has become recognized across the world. This film will make laugh and cry.
