  • Title: Galas - 2010 Winners
    Descriptive info: 2010 Award Winners.. Person of the year.. Dr Lydia Foy.. In the face of enormous personal difficulty, but with good humour and grace, Lydia Foy took a case against the Irish Government to have her true gender recognised on her birth certificate 13 years ago..

When the Government withdrew its appeal in the Lydia Foy case, it was not only a moment of great personal victory after gruelling years of legal lows, it was a moment in which history was made, when a lone individual stood up for her human rights and changed society and our laws for the better, not only for transgendered men and women, but for all of us..
