Why does GCN need your support?
Keeping GCN free of charge is central to our role as a community resource, ensuring we remain a fully accessible service, a place for the community to see itself reflected and celebrated while engaging in the real issues that LGBTQ+ people face today.
Since it was founded over 35 years ago, GCN has expanded from its monthly magazine to becoming Ireland’s free national LGBTQ+ press and a key resource for the community, which includes our news website, health & educational initiatives and campaigns, and live events.
As well as being a hub for every LGBTQ+ community organisation in Ireland that seeks to represent every queer event, group, artist, activist, and community worker in this country, GCN also continues to be a hand that reaches out to marginalised groups, those who are not at the heart of the action, who are isolated and need a connection to their community, fostering a clear sense of diversity and inclusion.
One of the ongoing events we co-host with our voluntary governing board, the National LGBT Federation (NXF), is The GALAs, which celebrates our community, particularly the efforts of individuals and organisations across Ireland who seek to make life better for LGBTQ+ people.
To sustain the vital work that we do, we run a variety of fundraising initiatives, including our much-beloved Big Fat Gay Pub Quiz, Eurovision Party, and our online store and merchandise line, which launched in 2021.
But with rising costs in recent years, which has more impact on a not-for-profit organisation like ours, we need your help to continue our work as Ireland’s free, independent LGBTQ+ media.
