Via #Transgender Equality Network Ireland



We are devastated to report that Sean Meehan passed away this morning. Sean was a vibrant, charming and talented member of the trans community and a vocal advocate for trans rights. Sean was a phenomenal performer, often integrating trans issues into his work and was the winner of the Alternative Miss Ireland competition in 2006. Sean was an accomplished playwright and the first trans participant in Mr Gay Ireland, having won Mr Pantibar in 2012. At TENI, we remember Sean marching alongside us at Pride and his picture graces the walls of our office.
Sean went peacefully with friends around him. He will be greatly missed by all who knew him.
If Sean’s death has impacted you we strongly encourage you to contact Console for support: 1800 247 247.
Rest in Power.
