Emma's Room

February 2016

This month's issue looks at Emma Donoghue's Oscar nomination for Room, making her one of the few queer nominees at their year's Academy Awards. While the focus lies on white-washing, pink-washing remains a problem; Queer activist Sandra Namumtebi talks about staying proud in Uganda, where LGBT people can't leave their houses without a bodyguard; We meet Dennis Altman, author of Queer Wars, to discuss the alarming polarisation between countries where LGBT people are accepted and those where they are oppressed; We look at the new guidelines on LGBT support that are being sent to schools and what it's like for trans kids who come out at school.

LGBT entertainment news, opinion pieces and more. All in this month's GCN!
