11 Fabulous Ways To Get Creative In 2019

Want to indulge your creative side and make new friends in the New Year? Here are some great queer options to explore!

A creative burst of colours

When the New Year rolls around, it can be easy to pick resolutions that centre on restriction – less sugar, less fat, less drinking, etc. However, there is something much more fulfilling about taking up or learning something creative and new. From learning valuable skills to making like-minded friends, there are so many advantages to new hobbies. So, with that in mind, we have put together 11 LGBT+ inclusive groups to help you become a more creative person.

Glória LGB Choir

Dublin’s longest running LGB choir just gets better and better every year. If you want to harmonise, contact [email protected] to find out about auditions.

GCN has been a vital, free-of-charge information service for Ireland’s LGBTQ+ community since 1988.

During this global COVID pandemic, we like many other organisations have been impacted greatly in the way we can do business and produce. This means a temporary pause to our print publication and live events and so now more than ever we need your help to continue providing this community resource digitally.

GCN is a registered charity with a not-for-profit business model and we need your support. If you value having an independent LGBTQ+ media in Ireland, you can help from as little as €1.99 per month. Support Ireland’s free, independent LGBTQ+ media.
