Issue Cover

GCN  |  343  


It’s our bumper Pride issue and we’ve got so much in store for you, we hardly know where to start! First up on our cover are the gorgeous Glória, Dublin’s lesbian and gay choir and star donators to our GCN30 exhibition Fundit campaign, who talk to us about being one great big alternative family. It’s appropriate, since the Dublin Pride theme this year is ‘We Are Family’ and in keeping we talk to groups of friends who consider each other kin, while Justin McAleese talks about our need for solidarity as the Pope’s visit to the World Meeting on Families excludes LGBT families. .. read more
We remember the tragic murder of Declan Flynn, which sparked the first gay rights march in Ireland, and reflect on the situation facing LGBTs in Latin America, where brutal murders take place every day. We get educated on Intersex issues and talk to Minister Katherine Zappone about the governments LGBTI+ Youth Strategy, the first of it’s kind in the world. Plus Rupert Everett talks to us about his love for Oscar Wilde and growing older as a totally out actor. And that’s just the beginning of what’s on offer. Get reading now!  read less
