Our cover star, quintessential queen, Chanel is just one of the Dublin drag queens photographed by the up and coming Steven Peice for our photo essay, ‘The Dreamers’. ““I feel that in a way drag has always been seen as a goofy entertainment, and there’s no real focus on how these men are actually transforming themselves into fully realised fantasies,” Steven says, and we couldn’t agree more.
Elsewhere we get a queer flava of what’s on offer in both the Fringe and Dublin Theatre Festivals this year, we ponder why TERFs (trans exclusionary radical feminists) have not made it across the water from England to our fair shores, people who identify under the plus in LGBT+ talk to us about the need to accept expanding queer identities, and we remember the mega-gay anthem that was Cher’s ‘Believe’. It’s a jam-packed issue, of that there can be no doubt!
