LGBTQI+ Special Envoy Stern’s Travel to Ireland

From June 30 to July 2, Special Envoy to Advance the Human Rights of LGBTQI+ Persons Jessica Stern will travel to Dublin, Ireland.

Special Envoy Stern will meet with senior Irish government officials to discuss Ireland’s efforts to advance LGBTQI+ equality via multilateral fora and domestically to address discrimination and provide mental health support for LGBTQI+ individuals.  SE Stern will also meet with Irish parliamentarians to discuss legislative approaches and best practices to strengthen political support for advancing LGBTQI+ equality in Ireland.

Additionally, Special Envoy Stern will meet with LGBTQI+ activists and non-governmental organizations that led the country’s successful public referendum for marriage equality and continue to advocate for dignity and respect in Ireland and across Europe.

SE Stern will participate in a fireside chat with former Taoiseach Leo Varadkar, moderated by Ambassador Claire Cronin, as part of the Embassy’s Le Chéile 100 series.  Le Chéile 100 is a series of fireside chats to honor the centenary of U.S. and Irish diplomatic relations, facilitating conversations between thought leaders from government, business, sports, culture, and civil society to explore the history and future of the deep relationship between the United States and Ireland.
