    Event Description

    Recently many student organisations such as The UCD SU, Trinity News and various societies have announced full or partial boycotts of the Irish Times Newspaper, in support of the Trans Writers Union in Ireland. The Irish Times has published many articles that have been heavily criticised by the Trans community and has inspired this boycott, led by the Trans Writers Union. This week at 6:30PM the L&H welcome representatives from both sides to explain their viewpoint, discuss the effectiveness of a boycott and discuss the standards to which we should hold our media. Join us in the FitzGerald Chamber with Hugh Linehan, Arts and Culture Editor at the Irish Times, Sara Phillips Chair of the Trans Equality Network Ireland and student representatives such as Ruari Power, SU President and Jay Pope Auditor of the UCD LGBTQ+ Society in UCD among more.
