Welcome to the October Issue of GCN, as our much-missed printed issue makes a return, and it’s a great one!
Inside, we take a look at the incredible Proud AF campaign, which speaks to under-represented queer men and platforms their voices. There’s also a hard-hitting feature on the national emergency that is the state of Trans healthcare.
Expect amazing photospreads, including a look at the triumphant return of the Mother Block Party, while photographer Niamh Barry captures portraits of queer youth.
On the arts side of things, Once Before I Go is an unmissable show in the Gate theatre looking at 40 years of LGBTQ+ life, while Emma Wolf-Haugh’s exhibition celebrates queer women through the lens of Eileen Gray. The community speaks, as members talk about issues such as the blood ban, body image, the situation for LGBTQ+ people in Direct Provision, and The Outing amongst others.
There’s also an incredible feature on Ireland's history of criminalising gay men tying in with the upcoming Decade of Centenaries. With all that quality content, put on the kettle and get comfy!
