Culture Stripping

Niche culture is being squeezed out in what has become a survival of the richest. The newer offerings feel like synthetic commercialised experiences, transforming Dublin into yet another faceless city.

About GCN

Welcome to the January Issue of GCN, the very first of a new decade! We look at holiday destinations for LGBT+ families and the stresses involved without full parental rights. A piece on Poland shows how activists are still fighting in the face of state-led homophobia. There’s a fabulous photospread on Black Pride Ireland accompanied by their experiences of being queer people of colour in this country as well as a feature highlighting some of the incredible female and non-binary activists leading the charge for a better country. The Gay Project fill us in on their amazing year in Cork, while Tonie Walsh celebrates the iconic art of Derek Jarman. There’s also a wonderful piece on the much-missed nightlife venue, The Dragon. You’ll find a hard-hitting piece on the impact of the housing crisis on the LGBT+ community and how rising rents and lack of accommodation are driving people to breaking point. Have a festive season, readers, we wish you a new year filled with joy and happiness!
