The Outing Festival Director Eddie McGuinness draws on considerable experience in PR, Marketing, promotion, and event management. Among much PR work in Ireland & the UK, Eddie is former Event Chair for Dublin Pride; a multi-faceted celebration attracting the participation of 100,000+. Eddie has also designed and hosted highly publicised LGBT events, including “Club Tease” award-winning gay club to Award-winning Magazine ‘free! Magazine’, which similarly fused gay culture and traditional Ireland garnering national media coverage.

“Traditional Irish events like céilí dances have had it right for hundreds of years – they’re a perfect way to meet new people in a lively, comfortable, and fun atmosphere. We’re taking the best of old Ireland – music, dancing, and matchmaking – and putting it together with the variety of entertainment on offer in the LGBT community. We think it’s going to be a very effective combination!”

“Ireland is leading the world on a lot of gay issues and hopefully we will have gay marriage soon, so the time is right for something like this to take place. We have a five-year plan for this event. This year we are looking at attracting people from Ireland and Britain but this is going to become a very big international event.”

Frank Cleary
