We highlight some of the stunning shows in the Dublin Fringe Festival including our very own collaboration with the festival - The North Is Next. Fringe stars Vickey Curtis, Seán Kennedy, Maia Nunes and Beth Hayden from Glitter HOLE all feature prominently.
There’s a fabulous photospread of the ultimate queer art and music festival - Love Sensation and we take a deep dive into the world of queer dating sims. You’ll find essential interviews with queer drag artist extraordinaire - Avoca Reaction, multi-talented artist Dylan Meade and Dylan Coburn Gray, the writer of the diverse and inclusion new National Youth Theatre show - Ask Too Much Of Me.
The community speaks, with the launch of Outcomers Drogheda, the manifesto for Black Pride Ireland and a HIV Positive activist with ACT UP Cork speaks about the need to share the U=U message.
To all the artists, creatives, writers, performers, singers, illustrators and dreamers - this one’s for you.
