Club GASS: Amach! LGBT Galway – 2 Fundraisers For Teach Solais!

AMACH! LGBT Galway are delighted that two really exciting fundraiser events are taking place in the coming weeks, with all proceeds going to keeping Teach Solais LGBT+ Resource Centre’s doors open. 

The first fundraiser is the screening of the award-winning Irish documentary, Outitude, at 9.30pm Friday 21st June in Pálás.

The screening is kindly being sponsored by club GASS and in collaboration with Pálás– to ensure all proceeds go to Teach Solais!

Outitude, charts the history of lesbian Ireland. Directed by Sonya Mulligan, and produced by Ger Moane, it is a grassroots documentary that charts the history of the Irish Lesbian Community from all the way back in the 70’s to the 2015 marriage referendum.

Both Director and producer will be there on the night, for a Q&A after the screeningTickets are just €10 with discount entry into Club GASS, Róisín Dubh, that night (€6 with proof of ticket).

After folk have recovered from a fun night in Club GASS, there will be an undoubtedly funny and factual night in the Róisín Dubh on Monday 24th from 8pm, with a Table Quiz hosted by the fabulous duo, Steve Bennett and Steven Sharpe.

Tickets for a table for 4 are €10 with all proceeds going to Teach Solais.
