In case you missed it, Taoiseach Leo Varadkar marked the 25th anniversary of the decriminalisation of homosexuality.
Speaking at the Dail yesterday during a debate on a Labour party motion marking the 25th anniversary of the repeal of the laws, the Taoiseach said: "Today the people I want to pay a special tribute to are the unknown heroes, the thousands of people whose names we do not know, who were criminalised by our forbears,"
Speaking next in the Dáil on the All Party Motion to mark the 25th anniversary of the decriminalisation of homosexuality in Ireland. Credit to @geraldnash for bringing it forward. We remember the voices of the brave few who gave us all hope & who changed things for everyone.
