In the last year we’ve seen some remarkable developments in Ireland’s response to the HIV crisis.For World AIDS Day 2018, the leaders of several political parties, as well as the Taoiseach took HIV tests to promote testing and to challenge stigma — a stark change from the same day in 2016 which passed without official comment.

In June of this year, representatives from four Irish cities joined the Taoiseach and the Minister for Health to sign on to the Fast-Track Cities initiative, pledging to develop local partnerships to support HIV prevention efforts and to combat HIV-related stigma and discrimination. And on November 4, a red-letter day in terms of HIV prevention in Ireland, we saw the official start of the long-awaited national PrEP (pre-exposure prophylaxis) programme.

About GCN

Welcome to our December issue where we discuss all things health and wellbeing, taking a look at issues which affect the community physically, mentally and sexually. There’s a stunning photo series celebrating the male form away from toxic masc-for-masc culture from photographer Steven Peice who also captured the cover image. A young trans man shares the journey abroad he had to take to avail of top surgery, while members of Intersex Ireland speak about the prejudice they overcame. We dispel shame and bizarre myths about the menopause while the disturbing subject of bi erasure gets a much-needed feature. There’s a discussion about the place of corporations in the LGBT+ community and author and former president of the NGF, Eamon Somers, recounts his career. In a GCN first, we proudly premier our very first piece of original fiction with a short story from an exciting new writer. With the topic of health and wellbeing in mind and recent events at Loughlinstown, it’s time to get out in the streets to support our trans family. No more waiting lists! Enjoy the issue.
