Now There Is An Irish-English Queer Dictionary


Share this article


A new queer dictionary for the Irish language has been launched. 'An Foclóir Aiteach' includes translated phrases for words such as transgender, bigender and genderqueer. 

The Queer Dictionary, translated as 'An Foclóir Aiteach' in Irish, is the first of its kind in Ireland with over 100 words and terms translated.

The compilation is part of a collaboration between the Union of Students in Ireland, BelonG To Youth Services, and the Transgender Equality Network of Ireland.

It also received the support of Minister for Gaeilge, Joe McHugh, who said this kind of initiative keeps 'the language alive and close to the heart.'

The aim of the dictionary is that members of the LGBTI+ community here in Ireland will no longer be stuck for words in our native language.

The dictionary has terms like: Agender (Gan inscne) , Bigender (Dá-inscneach), Demigender (Leath-inscnech), Genderqueer (Inscne-aiteach), and Transgender (Trasinscneach).

The dictionary can be downloaded for free here.
