For the past number of years, Out in UL have worked closely with Limerick Pride to ensure the students have a contribution to the biggest queer event in Limerick’s calendar. In 2009, we ran the hugely successful event Mr. Gay Limerick. In 2010, we hosted a treasure hunt around Limerick City, followed by a BBQ in 31 Thomas Street. In 2011, we created the ‘Love Diversity’ mural on the Post Office Lane (which you can see below), and also hosted a trip to the roller derby.
In 2012 we hosted The Secrets Party. Inspired by PostSecret.com, we collected hundreds of secrets which were posted over the walls of Baker Place. It was a huge success and everyone who attended learned that it doesn’t matter who you are or who you love, we are all connected by our secrets.
