modern anthem011 Charting The Songs We Love So Well

One of this year’s biggest pop culture moments has been the return of Lady Gaga. Her role in A Star Is Born has ushered in a new wave of excitement for an artist celebrating a decade in music. Her duet with Bradley Cooper, ‘Shallow’, just topped the Irish singles chart - her sixth song to do so. One of those hits was ‘Born This Way’, the 2011 single which became a deining song in Gaga’s catalogue, one with a message aimed squarely at her young audience and one that would also prove controversial.

Back in 2011, Gaga was enjoying her pop prime. Her 2008 debut, The Fame, lead to chart domination across 2009 and 2010 with singles like ‘Just Dance’ and ‘Bad Romance’.

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!
