I’m starting to think that the Iona Institution made the biggest mistake by attempting to redefine homophobia to suit themselves. Three weeks ago, Panti was little known outside of Dublin and outside of the gay community in Ireland. As of this evening, her speech has been viewed over 47,000 times in little over 24 hours. The same video has been shared on the website of the Huffington Post. The issue from which all this has stemmed has been raised in the EU Parliament (according to Twitter). I hope that this comes full circle and the EU put pressure on the Minister of Communications/RTE to apologise to Panti, rather than the straight victims of homophobia who can only be found in Ireland.
