A Fine Art

The awesome folk at LGBT+ Health South Tipperary are about to launch their inspiring art expo - We Are Family. The show will feature a collection of art including photos, painting, poetry and more. There will also be a stunning 10 piece group canvas to feast your eyes upon. The work is created by LGBT+ groups, family members and friends, and fittingly, as this is the youth issue, there is also strong representation from younger members of the community. The launch night is November 1 at 6pm in the Main Guard Building, O’Connell Street, Clonmel, Tipperary where attendees can expect music, refreshments and more. Admission is free but if people would like to donate, any money raised will go toward supporting the LGBT+ community. If you can’t make it on the night, fear not - the exhibition will run until November 7. So get yourselves down to the Main Guard Building and support your local LGBT+ artists!

To Kill a Time by Stanlee Keefe is an arresting novel which encapsulates what it was to be a gay man growing up in the 1980’s, having to navigate the subtleties of the Dublin gay scene with all its cladestine grittiness and shaded secrecy.
