The Fully-Automated Luxury Gender Oasis

An article in last September’s issue of GCN sparked a fuse that’s led to the formation of Ireland’s rst trans artist’s collective, which in turn has led to a major trans-led collaborative event at this year’s Dublin Fringe Festival. Trans Live Art Salon member, Robyn McQuaid-O’Dwyer talks about having a real impact on trans presence on the Irish stage.

Opinion

Self-representation – Trans art – Dublin Fringe

This time 12 months ago I wrote an article for GCN on the state of trans representation in Irish theatre. Mostly, I wrote about 2015, when there were more trans narratives on Irish stages in one year than there had been in the previous several decades. While this was a hugely positive step, I was concerned about the fact that it was mostly cis writers, directors, and performers delivering these first ever narratives of people like me to Irish audiences. As all LGBT+ readers of this can attest, while people who don’t have our experiences can tell interesting stories, they frequently have a tendency to focus on what is interesting for cis or for straight people, not for the community being represented.

About GCN

This month take an in-depth look at the problems and issues facing Irish LGBT+ young people in our annual Youth issue in collaboration with BeLonG To. In our featured interview, Roscommon's own Xnthony talks fake authenticity, rural queerness and rebranding ahead of his Dublin Fringe show, The Power of Wow. Huge misinformation exists amongst young people around HIV transmission and it's all because of a lack of suitable sexual education in Irish schools, writes Ralph Hurley O'Dwyer. Members of trans youth group IndividualiTy tells us about their ups and downs after a decade mentoring and supporting trans kids. BeLonG To's Drugs and Alcohol Worker Ger Roe shares his experiences of helping LGBT+ young people feel empowered, and to become agents of social change. Aifric Ni Chríodáin reports on the HSE's rolling out of the HPV vaccine among gay and bisexual men. Our Budding Burning Issues survey throws up some interesting facts around the opinions of our youngest community members, Plus all the best in news, edutainment, gossip, food and much more.
