Vive La France

Francophiles rejoice as the French Film Festival returns to the IFI this November! Viewers will be spoiled for choice with an incredible selection of new and classic films, not to mention an exceptionally strong line-up of award winning LGBT+ titles.

Lovers of queer cinema should snap up tickets for Sorry Angel, an engrossing, vibrant romantic drama which depicts the burgeoning love affair between Jacques, a middle-aged HIV Positive Parisian writer, and bisexual Arthur, a university student ten years his junior. As the relationship develops, they learn to negotiate the terms of their romance tempered by inescapable illness and mortality.

About GCN

In this special edition, our community's younger members take over for the annual Youth Issue. Our guest editor Emily profiles a group of young activists leading the charge for a new Ireland. We celebrate 15 years of the awesome BeLonG To, the national organisation supporting LGBTI+ youth while one of their subgroups, The LadyBirds, tackle the lack of awareness around women's sexuality and sexual health. A young asylum seeker in Direct Provision tells us of his struggles with homophobia while LGBT+ people in rural areas speak about the effects of isolation and how youth groups helped them find confidence. We top things off with a preview of the upcoming Science Of The Kiss exhibition, part of GCN's takeover of the Science Gallery. This is a good one!
