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!
