Club Tease

“DJ Ruth found her passion for DJing in a little local pub in her home town of Lucan, nearly 20 years ago. Not long after she found her true home, musically and socially, on the gay scene. She quickly became a well known and very well-liked part of the scene she loved. Over the years she has held long residencies in Dragon, Pro-homo, Spice, Dragged Up & Glitz to name but a few and now every Friday night in The George Bar Dublin.

She has also guested on many other nights around Dublin including the George,  Club Tease, Profile & Kiss.

She also proudly played at Milk, Irelands first gay music festival, to a roaring success. Dj Ruth has now played at over 4 years at The Outing Festival

For many years she has played the Dublin Pride official parties, this year playing on the main stage to over 15 thousand people. (Having 10,000 plus people do the YMCA was a particular highlight!)

Traveling around Ireland is not unusual to Ruth, where she has played regular gigs in Limerick, Cork, and Galway.

Happy to play camp pop to kicking house. Ruth knows how to bring the party!”

NLI Living with Pride – National Library of Ireland

Living with Pridephotographs by Christopher Robson. Documenting LGBTI+ life and activism in Ireland during the 1990s and 2000s.

NLI Living with Pride at The Outing Festival

Gay and civil rights activist Christopher Robson, 1941-2013, photographed decades of Irish LGBT+ life. In 2015, his partner Bill Foley donated over 2,000 of Christopher’s photographs taken between 1992-2007 to our National Library collections, ensuring LGBT+ representation in Ireland’s story. In 2021, Living with Pride, a photographic exhibition in the National Photographic Archive, Dublin, celebrated Christopher’s life and work. And this NLI #LivingWithPride community microsite celebrates both events, as today’s activists reflect on what Christopher’s photographs mean to them.
