Welcome to the December Issue of GCN! Our cover feature is a powerful team-up between activist Bulelani Mfaco and photographer Brian Teeling, describing Bulelani’s early days in Ireland.
We catch up with Éirénne Carroll, the new CEO of TENI, while Paula Fagan of LGBT Ireland celebrates 10 years of the Helpline. There are some wonderful interviews, as Pradeep Mahadeshwar speaks to members of the Asian LGBTQ+ community and Ranae von Meding chats with same-sex parents who welcomed new babies into the world in the midst of lockdown.
We continue our fabulous Queer Utopia series with an amazing collaboration between Osaro and Sarah Moloney and expect beautiful illustrations from Neave Alouf as part of the #GCNnewvoices campaign.
Stephen Moloney has a hard-hitting piece about the rise of the far-right in Ireland, while the GHN share the findings of a recent report released for World AIDS Day.
You’ll also find tons of news from across the country as LGBTQ+ community organisations fill us in on what’s happening, and lots lots more!
