Issue Cover

GCN  |  355  


Welcome to our biggest and brightest issue of the year - our annual Pride Edition. We made a call out for members of our LGBT+ family to design our cover. All who entered are featured inside, and for the first time ever we have a bumper double cover by artists Gabriel Marques and Day Magee! Inside we round-up all the Prides taking place across Ireland alongside interviews with young people from rural areas who explain Pride’s importance. There’s a conversation between Will St Leger, the Dublin Pride Grand Marshall, and Bruce Coleman, an ACT UP activist who was in New York after Stonewall. There’s a remembrance of the Repeal movement and a feature about the prejudice faced by lesbian women and trans folk in barbershops. GCN also reaches out to the community; chatting to the myriad places where our magazine is delivered. And that’s only the tip of the Pride float.
From all at GCN, we wish you a happy, safe and fabulous Pride season!
