Happenin’things to do this month

1 RIOT Revival

RIOT was the talk of the GCN offices last September, when it literally took the Dublin Fringe by storm. Selling out an eleven-night long run at the Spiegeltent, it wowed audiences with a quirky and quintessentially queer cornucopia of circus, all overseen by mistress of ceremonies, Miss Panti Bliss (who was in a leg cast at the time, but carried it off with style, grace and very good face).

The craic is kind of a mix between Fosset’s Circus and the Kit Kat Klub in Cabaret, Weimer Republic meets the Irish Republic. Our favourite was the hot GAA player turned acrobat in skintight pants, but there were plenty of other acts to feast our senses upon, including unhinged contortionists, Lords of Strut, state of the nation spoken word maestro, Emmet Kirwan, and wisecrackin’ Dub duo dancers Up & Over It. We’re looking forward to seeing what’s up producers THISISPOPBABY’s sleeve for the new run, and crossing our fingers Panti won’t break a leg at this year’s rehearsals.

About GCN

The brand new Dublin Pride issue of GCN features a stunning cover image by London-Irish writer and photographer, PP Hartnett, and an interview about interrogating the flip side of the gay community through his work. We also talk to maverick trans rapper, Mykki Blanco about his life post abandoning Trump’s America. Will Vladimir Putin go to war with Chechnya over the region's gay purge? We analyse the situation. Our editor goes to New York to attend a meeting of Gays Against Guns, one year on from the Pulse massacre in Orlando. We meet Irish HIV activists who are taking inspiration from the fierce examples set by ACT UP NYC at the peak of the AIDS crisis, and we talk to Joni Crone, the first ever lesbian to appear on The Late Late Show in 1980 for a legendary interview. And that’s just a flavour of what we’ve got in store for you this month!
