Panti Bliss: All the Little Things

This talk was given at a 2015 TEDx event, produced independently of the TED Conferences. Ireland’s foremost “gender discombobulist” (AKA drag queen!), Panti Bliss shares her experience of the little, everyday things that can have a huge impact on the wellbeing of gay people.

Panti expresses her thoughts on navigating a world in which the simple act of holding hands can be a political statement in itself. Panti is an “accidental activist” and was presented with an Irish “People of the Year” award in 2014.

Panti’s creator Rory O’Neill sparked a furore across Ireland when he appeared on national television and named certain individuals and organisations as homophobic. When Panti took to the stage of the National Theatre to defend herself, her ten minute oration became an international sensation.
