Pulp Friction

Hidden histories and subverted homo culture are at the core of a new exhibition from Kilkenny artist Breda Lynch at the RHA a series of drawings that re-work 1960s lesbian pulp fiction titles. These pocket paperbacks were hugely popular in the early ’40s to late ’60s, after the introduction and enforcement of the Hays production code, which censored the American film industry. The books, aimed at a male audience, provided a peek into perceived scandalous, erotic encounters between women, and as a result garnered a big following with isolated lesbians at a time when there was no discernable queer community.

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.
