Outburst is thrilled to present the winners of this year’s Outburst Queer Fringe Award, in partnership with Dublin Fringe. We loved this big-spirited gem by Vickey and Áine because it’s unlike any spoken work show we’ve seen before, bringing together queer politics, LGBTQ+ identity and a mad passion for sport.
This is club and county. This is Irish PRIDE. We’re here, we’re queer, and we love to cheer. We’re Dublin vs. Mayo. We’re queerer than Gaybo. We’re Irish and loud. We really love the GAA. We’re an all-island game. We’re your guilty pleasure. We’re the snack bar on the side of a pitch. We’re the oranges at half time. We’re the greens, reds and blues. We’re searching for Sam.
We are not your typical sports fans.
