Herstory in the Making

Having repeatedly noted a dearth in representation of the Irish lesbian experience on the screen, the makers of a new documentary showing at this year’s GAZE decided to take matters into their own hands. The result is Outitude, a ilm that is as grassroots as the lesbian movement it charts, as director and producer Sonya Mulligan and Ger Moane, tell Aoife O’Connor.

A grassroots documentary born from the fundamental question of ‘where are we on the screen?’, Outitude charts the history of the Irish Lesbian Community from all the way back in the 70s to the 2015 marriage referendum. Produced by an all-female, all-queer team, the documentary features interviews with some of Ireland’s most notable lesbians (Nell McCafferty and Ailbhe Smyth to name a few), and paints an emotional picture of a community connected by their fight for equality. Director Sonya Mulligan and producer/researcher Geraldine Moane sat down for a chat with GCN in preparation for the film’s premiere during GAZE 2018.

About GCN

We’ve got so much to talk about in this month’s issue, we’d better get started! Leading the charge is our cover star Conor O’Brien, the voice behind The Villagers. Conor dropped in to talk about their new album and what it’s like being an out gay man in the business. On a further musical note, Irish electro band Eden celebrate 20 years in the industry. They had many a tale to tell and GCN was delighted to listen! The GAZE film festival takes over cinema screens this month so we caught up with Desiree Akhavan, the writer and director of the much-lauded gay conversion therapy film The Miseducation Of Cameron Post, along with the creators of the essential documentary Outitude, detailing the history of Ireland’s lesbian community. On a more serious note, Evgeny Shtorn details his escape from Russian persecution only to be caught in the bureaucracy that is Ireland’s Direct Provision System. Plus Jamie Brady provides a hard-hitting photo essay on the effects on Grindr on the young male psyche. With all that awesome content on offer, you better start reading now!
