who? what? when? where? why?

GCN is not just a magazine. We are a conversation. We are a siren. We are a call out. We are a message around the island. Samantha McCaffrey speaks to the community. Images by Neave Alouf.

GCN is distributed to a variety of places and people all around the island of Ireland. It is everywhere - from community centres in Mayo, libraries in Belfast, bars in Galway, youth projects in Wexford, LGBT+ projects in Cavan and cafes in Cork. We print 10,000 magazines every month and they go to 347 places around the island, south and north too.

We are definitely more available in cities and urban areas, with Dublin at the top of the list, but we’d like to change that.

In Dublin we can be found in 174 places throughout the city, in bookshops and lunch spots, colleges and hotels, as well as queer bars and LGBT+ organisations.

GCN are constantly looking at ways to develop and grow our visibility, especially in the towns and villages and suburbs beyond the city centres. Ireland has become more diverse and proud but coming out or being LGBT+ can still be a challenge.

About GCN

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!
