You’ll find a jaw-droppingly beautiful fashion spread by queer Irish designer Colin Horgan, alongside a wonderful interview charting how the local boy done good. Musical mastermind Elaine Mai tells us all about her new album, while the Poz Vibe duo of Veda and Robbie Lawlor talk activism.
There are powerful pieces from the diverse voices of our community, including a 'Goodbye Ireland' letter from the departing CEO of TENI, discussions on differently abled dating, queer joy, confronting racism in the community, the experience of a Trans person with the Irish army, sexual awakenings and bisexual erasure.
Expect stunning photos and illustrations from incredibly talented creatives, including Clare Foley who created astonishing bespoke imagery for our GCNnewvoices series highlighting the words and thoughts of young LGBTQ+ writers.
