Perfect Ten

As the year draws to a close we’re having a reflective moment in GCN towers. 2018 was a momentous year, for the country in general and an extra special one for us, as we marked our 30th year in publishing- three glorious decades of being the national LGBTQ+ press in Ireland. This is a milestone we would not have reached without you, dear readers! With that in mind, here are some of our GCN highlights.


From January 1, we introduced a new daily segment, shared across our social media platforms. #Queerstory is a look back at momentous events which took place every day in LGBT+ history both in Ireland and worldwide.


On March 23 we published our Birthday Issue celebrating 30 years of GCN. Three decades and 340 issues of Ireland’s beloved queer magazine (not to mention being the longest running not-for-profi LGBT+ community news publication in the world!). The cover was specially created by artist Will St Leger, while inside, 30 columnists remembered 30 moments that changed Ireland.

About GCN

We’re closing our 30th anniversary celebrations with a bang, celebrating the year of the activist. With that in mind, we arranged for community leaders to speak to the next generation of trailblazers as both sides share their experiences. A Brazilian writer living in Ireland takes a look at his home country following the election of Bolsonaro, while Marty St Clair, one of the scientists behind the discovery of AZT, speaks about the beginnings of the battle against HIV and AIDS. Frank McDonald stops by to talk about his recently released memoirs. There’s an essential look at mental health in the queer community, and the people behind the awesome Dublin Lesbian Line tell us their plans for the future. You can also expect a roundup of a momentous year for LGBTQI+ folk and your community magazine. We couldn’t have done it without you, dear readers!
