Cherish Maloney has a fungal infection, and…

Christina Aguilera is a sell-out

Christina Aguilera made a surprise lowprofile visit to Dublin recently and nearly broke the Irish internet. Xtina let the genie out of the bottle by posting an Insta snap (on Fade Street of all places) with the caption “Proud of my Irish roots”.

Despite all the talk of Irish roots, the singer wasn’t in town to hunt down long-lost relatives like the Aguileras of Abbeyfeale. Instead, she was here to perform at a secret event for an American insurance company. #Corporate #Dirrty In fairness to Xtina, the gig was at 3 Arena (aka The 02 aka The Point) in front of a capacity crowd who’d been flown in from the States… and not some crappy BBQ for ‘influencers’ at Facebook HQ.

About GCN

Our cover star, quintessential queen, Chanel is just one of the Dublin drag queens photographed by the up and coming to Steven Peice for our photo essay, ‘The Dreamers’. “I feel that in a way drag has always been seen as a goofy entertainment, and there’s no real focus on how these men are actually transforming themselves into fully realised fantasies,” Steven says, and we couldn’t agree more. Elsewhere we get a queer flava of what’s on offer in both the Fringe and Dublin Theatre Festivals this year, we ponder why TERFs (trans-exclusionary radical feminists) have not made it across the water from England to our fair shores, people who identify under the plus in LGBT+ talk to us about the need to accept expanding queer identities, and we remember the mega-gay anthem that was Cher’s ‘Believe’. It’s a jam-packed issue, of that there can be no doubt!
