About GCN

Welcome to a very special edition of GCN. With International Women’s Day on March 8, we decided to celebrate the female-identifying members of our queer family with a host of interviews, features and opinion pieces. There’s an amazing photo set with Pillow Queens, while the ultimate frontwoman - Skin from Skunk Anansie - talks 25 years in the business. There’s a look back at the lesbian nightlife scene of the ‘80s and ‘90s, while writer and director Kate Dolan stopped by to talk all things horror. There’s an urgent and essential piece about the treatment of women in online spaces and a hard-hitting report on LGBT+ killings in Brazil. We highlight the inspiring new queer wave in the Irish student movement and Ellen Murray from TENI, the trans rights and disability rights advocate, tells us about her journey. It’s a great one, people!
