Twice a week, cancer patients from Donegal board a bus and travel five hours and 200 kilometres to receive radiotherapy in University Hospital Galway – their nearest treatment centre. In Galway, they take residence in Inis Aoibhinn, a haven away from the hospital. Turas na hAilse / The Cancer Journey follows them as they journey together, exhibiting resilience, generosity and spirit under difficult, but unifying, circumstances.

Sexual and gender minority groups around the world face many forms of discrimination and persecution. As Human as I Am documents stories and strategies from LGBTI communities in Nepal, Malawi and Fiji, as they campaign for recognition, protection and inclusion.
