An immersive walking tour through Trinity’s LGBTQ+ history.

The Pride of Trinity Trails Tour

Take an immersive walking tour through Trinity’s historic campus, while learning about the university’s involvement in LGBTQ+ history. Visit the stomping grounds of Oscar Wilde and trace back in time to the societies that debated legalising homosexuality long before it was part of Irish public discourse.

Journey through the decades to the early 1970s when Trinity students and lecturers founded the Sexual Liberation Movement, the first of its kind in Ireland. Learn about its founding members who drove the groundbreaking ‘Campaign for Homosexual Reform’, which eventually led to the decriminalisation of homosexuality in Ireland.
