The Milk Harbour Process Episode 24
Episode 24: It's a Sin.
In this episode I speak with veteran Irish LGBT rights activist, Tonie Walsh about Channel 4's incredible show, It's a Sin. We talk about the parallels between the show's depiction of LGBT culture in London in the 80's, the impact of AIDS and Tonie's experiences in Ireland at the same time. In a vivid and often harrowing conversation, Tonie takes us through history of the LGBT civil rights movement in Ireland, the country's response to the AIDS "war" as well as the excitement of being a young gay person leaving home for the first time.
