This whole referendum process, whether people like it or not, is in of itself pro-choice because it is asking us, the democratic population, to choose.

OPINION:

Body Shame

If you are going through a bereavement, one of the most agonising things you can hear is that the death was “God’s will”. It kind of makes you hate God, for why would God need to take a person you love, particularly someone in the prime of their lives? I think back to how horrific it was for my family, most especially my brother and sister-in-law, to lose a child at eight and a half months and deliver her stillborn. But God’s will is a powerful weapon used to shut down questions, grief, concerns, and hopes. God’s will has been used to justify misogyny, racism, slavery, holocausts and homophobia.

About GCN

We’re out in the nick of time with our special Repeal issue, featuring an iconic photo by Katie Donohoe, taken the fateful day Maser’s repeal mural on the wall of The Project was painted over. Inside we reveal the results of our survey on the queer referendum vote, ask LGBT’s about the issues involved and speak to Anna Cosgrave, the creator of the Repeal Project. We meet the powerhouse protest group Radical Queers Resist and the writer and director behind ‘A Day In May’, a major stage production celebrating the 2015 marriage equality referendum victory. It’s a choc-a-bloc issue with a queer activism heart. Read it now!
