23 performance artists, drag queens and kings, have joined together with Eleanor McEvoy for Only a Woman's Heart - With a Twist, for the worthy aim of raising funds for Age Action’s work with older people in Ireland.
Only A Woman’s Heart is the much-loved song written by McEvoy, and part of a compilation album, A Woman’s Heart, composed of twelve tracks performed by six female Irish artists, including Mary Black and Dolores Keane.
The original 1992 album sold over 750,000 copies, making it among the best-selling albums in Irish chart history.
In the five years since Marriage Equality, over 3,210 same sex couples have wed in Ireland. Those couples are to be congratulated and celebrated - but the other side of the story is that older LGBTQI+ people are still more likely to live in isolation, be single and live alone.
They have lower levels of contact with relatives, and are at risk of healthcare discrimination and other issues.
Age Action supports and advocates for equality and human rights for all older people.
Everything they do is based on a recognition of the diversity of identity and situation among older people and a concern for equality for all older people.
This funds raised by this project will help to support Age Action’s work.
A GoFundMe page has been set up, and you can see the video and contribute to this great cause here.
