About GCN

We’re celebrating 30 years of GCN this month, that’s three decades and 340 issues of Ireland’s beloved queer magazine, and what a time of incredible change for LGBT+ people in Ireland our pages have documented over that time! In this very special issue, with a cover specially created by artist Will St Leger, 30 columnists remember 30 moments that changed Ireland of 30 years. From decriminalisation to marriage equality, and everything in between, there’s a lot of reading and a lot or reminiscing in this bumper collector’s edition. It’s literally everything you ever wanted to know about queer Ireland. Dig in now and get reading!
