We need to bridge the gap between LGBT+ haves and have -nots

The past two issues of GCN have given me pause to think about the disparity of experience we have as LGBT+ people on this tiny island. Our youth issue last month, guest edited by the feisty and fabulous 18 year-old Emer Lorenzo, was an eye-opener in terms of young Irish LGBT+ people’s experiences. Part of that issue was the first Budding Burning Issues survey of LGBTs aged between 13 and 24, and its findings were in stark contrast to the image of acceptance and understanding that has abounded in Ireland since the marriage equality referendum.

About GCN

Our provocative cover by artist and designer, Niall Sweeney, celebrates ten years of Pantibar while cheekily harking back to a certain fetish club both he and Rory O'Neill (aka Panti) ran in the mid-90s. Inside we discuss Sweeney's long-term artistic relationship with O'Neill and how their friendship has informed the evolution of Dublin's queer scene over three decades (the full recording of which is available via GCN’s new podcast Q&A: The Queer and Alternative Podcast). Elsewhere we talk to some high-flying champions of LGBT+ diversity in companies like Vodafone, Deloitte, Accenture Ireland, eir and Web Summit, about the benefits of bringing your authentic self to work, and the members of Intertech Ireland tell us about connecting the LGBT+ tech workforce. Chris O’Donnell hears from some non-national LGBTs who are effectively serving time in Ireland’s hellish Direct Provision centres about the double discrimination of being an LGBT+ asylum seeker. Shaun Dunne, author of a documentary-style play featuring the testimony of those living with HIV speaks to members of ACT UP ahead of its Dublin Theatre Festival run, and Ray O'Neill talks work/life balance. Plus, all the best news, opinion, reviews, events, and much more.
