Covid-19 has claimed more than 8,000 lives in the United States of America thus far - including the life of Tarlach Mac Niallais.

Born in Belfast, Mac Niallais was one of the most significant players in the LGBT campaigning community in New York City, and a veteran of campaigning for LGBT equality in Northern Ireland before emigrating there.

Donal Fallon joins Gavan Reilly for another episode of Hidden Histories to reflect on the impact Tralach's life had on so many and explore a past which touches on Ian Paisley’s DUP, the New York Saint Patrick’s Day parade, and the early history of Pride on the island of Ireland.
