Presented by LGBT Ireland's James O’Hagan, the eight-part series tells the powerful stories of older members of the LGBTQ+ community as they open up about their experience living as a queer person in Ireland.

From coming out prior to the decriminalisation of homosexuality, gender dysphoria and conversion therapy, Invisible Threads features raw, honest conversations with members of the community, including Mrs. Brown’s Boys star Eilish O’Carroll.

Speaking on the release creator and host James said, "I can't begin to express how proud I am of Invisible Thread and of the 8 amazing people who were brave enough to share their stories with me."

Invisible Threads was the winner of the inaugural GoLoud Podship, a bursary worth €20,000, which invited submissions for an original podcast series.

The winning podcast was selected by an expert judging panel, beating hundreds of applicants.

James received a €5,000 cash prize, which he donated to LGBT Ireland, as well as access to in-house studio facilities, production support and a heavyweight launch marketing campaign.

To mark #IDAHOBIT2021 next week, LGBT Ireland and the @LGBTFRCWest will offer a FREE online event on ‘Pathways to Parenthood for the LGBTI+ Community’ on Monday May 17th from 7:30pm – 9:30pm.

Of the winning series, the GoLoud judging panel said:

"We knew from the outset that this had the potential to be a great podcast. James’ passion and determination to give a generation of people a voice was evident and what he has delivered is audio storytelling at its very best – raw, honest, heartfelt personal accounts that give us all cause for reflection on a very important part of our history".

Invisible Threads, a GoLoud Original Podcast launches today, May 17th and is available now on the GoLoud app and on goloudnow.com.
