Voices From Afar is a new video series from Gay Health Network. It features intimate portraits of five gay men who were not born in Ireland but who live here now. Participants come from South America, Africa, Asia and Europe.
Our Voices From Afar include Alejandro José (Guyana), Pradeep Mahadeshwar (India), Bulelani Cornelius Mfaco, (South Africa), Preetam Kumar (Mauritius) and Jordi Moya Roset (Catalonia).
In the films, our participants share their personal stories about growing up and their new life in Ireland. The intimate portraits explore themes of homophobia, racism, sexual and mental health and Ireland’s direct provision system.
Intimate, up close, personal and real, our Voices From Afar share their truths and compel us to listen and think.
Voices From Afar was produced by the Gay Health Network with support from the Department of Children, Equality, Disability, Integration and Youth Community Integration Fund.
