Rory O'Neill will appear on the Late Late Show this Friday to discuss The Queen of Ireland documentary on his life.
The Queen of Ireland, directed by Conor Horgan, is a powerful, poignant, and triumphant film which charts Rory's life from his childhood in Ballinrobe through the evolution of his drag queen alter ego Panti Bliss, 'Pantigate', her call to arms at the Abbey Theatre, and the recent marriage referendum.
Panti has also revealed on Twitter that Rory will be joined by his parents for the interview with Ryan Tubridy on RTE's flagship chat show.
Rory's parents Rory senior and Fin feature in the film which also sees Panti return to Rory's hometown of Ballinrobe for a celebratory performance and visit following the pivotal referendum.
"It hasn't always been easy to be my parents but I think they were very proud on Saturday night," said Rory at the time.
"If you told me even five years ago that I'd be in a marquee in the car park in Ballinrobe dressed as a woman with the whole town there, I would've thought you were insane, so it was surreal but lovely."
Following the show Panti will be heading to Lisdoonvarna to host The Outing, the LGBT event which takes place October 2-4 and is part of the matchmaking festival.
